A Must Dine!

Last night, RappAround PR, had our holiday party.  Not the kind of holiday party at the office, but a holiday party at an amazing restaurant, Fig and Olive.  I had dined at the Meatpacking Fig and Olive, but had not been to the LA one yet.  My boss had been, and we were both dying to go back.  We decided to share our way through dinner, and were completely satisfied when the meal was over.  We had crostinis, carpaccio, mixed olives, tartlet, lamb, and a little dessert to end the meal.   Here are a few pictures and what we ate!

Crostinis

From Top to Bottom:

Copa, Goat Cheese, Honey, and Almond

Prosciutto, Ricotta, Fig, Olive, Walnut

Mushroom, Truffle Artichoke, Parmesan

Would order all again, but our favorite was the mushroom, truffle artichoke, parmesan

Then, we had a beef carpaccio (filet mignon, 18 year old balsamic vinegar baby arugula, tomato, parmesan with Truffle Olive Oil) and a Fig Gorgonzola Tartlet (Warm gorgonzola, prosciutto, fig, walnut arugula, tomato, scallion on a fine puff pastry).  There are no pictures of these because Melissa and I were so excited to dig in, we didn’t even take a pictures!  These both were absolutely amazing.  Our first reaction when we first bit into the the carpaccio, was “I think I died and went to heaven.”  And, the tarlet was the perfect amount of sweet, bitter, gooey, and delicious.  Both of us will be ordering both of these again.  If you do not like the strong gorgonzola cheese, I would not recommend getting the tartlet.

Now, onto the main meal.  We decided on the rosemary lamb chops (grilled lamb chops smoked a la minute with a bouquet of Herbs de Provence goat cheese & chive gnocchi, roasted honey eggplant with Rosemary Garlic Olive Oil).  Lamb chops are something that both Melissa and I do not eat a lot, but love, so we decided to share these.  They were amazing!!  Highly recommend!

And, no dinner would be complete without a touch of chocolate!  We were deciding between the Warm Chocolate Souffle and the Chocolate Pot de creme, which we eventually went with.  It was accompanied by crunchy praline financiers and vanilla cream on top.

So, as you can see, RappAround was very pleased with our holiday dinner, and both will be returning to Fig and Olive!

Stay hungry…
