Bacon-Wrapped Bacon at Fig in Santa Monica

New, 1 comment

Today Jonathan Gold treks out to Fig in the Fairmont Miramar Hotel for a taste of bacon-wrapped bacon and other seasonal specialties. Naturally, he mentions the bacon-wrapped bacon right off the bat, then continues on to say, chef "Ray Garcia’s menu is kind of brilliant, actually, satisfying to both the transgressive big-meat guys and the Gaia-conscious vegans...Fig is mostly in the straightforward, French-tinged, organic-casual style we have come to associate with dining on the Westside...But Garcia’s cooking seems to carry within it more than a bit of aggression, and if I were a culinary therapist rather than a critic, I might take the slug of bacon in the brussels sprouts or the presence of tooth-cracking, undercooked pig’s ear in the frisée salad to be subtle cries for help...And as to that bacon-wrapped bacon... If you have ever wished that bacon could be liquid and crunchy at the same time, this is the bacon for you." [LAW]
