The True Spoon Eats: FIG

Sometimes I need to clear my mind and transport myself to a tranqil location to escape the LA rat race. The Fairmont hotel in Santa Monica is the epitome of tranquility, a stone’s throw from the Pacific Ocean. Luxury hotels make me happy, lounging in multimillion dollar properties also make me hungry, thank goodness for in house dining. I visited FIG, the hotel restaurant inside the Fairmont to quench my thirst, and fill my bougious belly. FIG’s chef Yousef Ghalaini focuses on local California produce prepared simply. The wood roasted broccoli with Calabrian chilies is the perfect example of how simplicitc preparations can be amazingly delicious. I paired my plant forward dishes with the most beautiful crisp Sancerre. The refreshing wine and delicious food made for one fantastic afternoon at FIG. I ended my meal with the black bear cocktail, because when you feel like you’re on vacation, you’re allowed to finish lunch with a cocktail;)
