Prepare your loafers, linen pants, and cashmere sweaters because Fig & Olive soft opens tomorrow, and anyone invited to the next three days of private events can expect to experience the above pictured relaxed olive oil oasis. Upon entry one will notice two long communal bar/tables (it looks like one bar but it's actually two), the first a communal marble-topped table perfect for a glass of vino and light bites, followed by the restaurant's martini bar which is comprised of the same blonde wood and white marble. To the left sit a flurry of lounge tables and oversized white pillows atop wicker furniture, just another seating option.
For a full Mediterranean dinner check out the main dining room or enclosed patio, don't forget olive oil takes center stage from appetizers through dessert, crafted under the watchful eye of Pascal Lorange, executive chef behind all Fig & Olive locations.
Upstairs one will find the less dressed Champagne Bar, notice more wicker furniture, white pillows, and low-slug tables, plus an additional bar. It's crazy that this space once housed the behemoth that was Republic, gone is the red velvet rope and rowdy club-goers, in place La Cienega lands a serene respite toasting the coastal cuisines of Southern France, Italy, and Spain.
