2011_4_fo.jpegJonathan Gold pays a visit to Melrose Place newbie, Fig & Olive, and despite the fact that he doesn't really comment on the food at all, he does say "there are figs and olives on everything, even at this time of year, when figs are as far out of season as pumpkins." The venue itself is a "clubby, light-washed restaurant, too big to be truly exclusive...The air itself vibrates with rosemary and garlic. When the waiter recommends the scallops with artichokes, the marzipan cake or the crostini with shaved mushrooms and truffle oil, he does so with the conspiratorial air of a dude setting you up with the second-hottest girl he knows."
