Festive Holiday restaurant conundrum solved.

FIG & OLIVE’s founder, Laurent Halasz, grew up in Mougins, in the South of France. With his mother, Francine, they have been inspired by this region and ingredients to create the style of cuisine of FIG & OLIVE. This cuisine is based on genuine ingredients and a respect of flavors.

The menu is created around carefully-selected farmers and ingredients for their genuine taste and seasonality. Guests can enjoy shareable plates such as our Zucchini Cappacio, Fig Gorgonzola Tartlet, and crostinis. At lunch, you’ll find a variety of flavorful dishes such as our Shrimp & Salmon Riviera Salad marinated with citrus and fruity olive oil; and our Herbs de Provence Roasted Chicken, finished with Rosemary Olive Oil.

For dinner, signature dishes include Grilled Branzino glazed with a fig balsamic vinegar, served with figs and snow peas finished with a sweet Picholine Olive Oil; and Grilled Lamb Chops smoked with a bouquet of Herbs de Provence and finished with a Rosemary Olive Oil. Desserts include our Chocolate Pot de Creme with crunchy praline financiers and our Dessert Crostini, Amarena cherries, mascarpone, and pistachios on shortbread.
