My friend and I wanted to take advantage of the Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, Nov 3-16 2014, to go outside of our monthly routine. I picked Fig & Olive, a Mediterranean restaurant, in Scarsdale because it was easy to make a reservation through OpenTable and their special Hudson Valley Restaurant Week menu was on hudsonvalleyrestaurantweek.com. All clicking from the same page. To all Digital Marketers, create an easy user experience and the business will come!
CROSTINI– from left to right: Burrata, Tomato, Pesto, Balsamic; Mushroom, Artichoke, Truffle, Scallion, Parmesan; Crab, Heirloom Tomato, Avocado, Apple Aioli. All excellent. So good that we almost did not want to share with each other.
FIG & OLIVE CHICKEN TAJINE: Moroccan spiced free range chicken served with fig, olive, apricot, carrot, zucchini, cipollini onion, tomato, and toasted almond. This dish had many layers. I thoroughly enjoyed every ingredient. Especially loved the apricot, fig, and olives. The Moroccan spice was just right, just spicy enough but not over powering.
In reality, I tried this dish twice. The first time here was fantastic and the second was dismal. In the second round, the center of the chicken thigh was not hot and sightly cold to the touch. Consistency is obviously not their forte.
This was a very happy outing. Both my friend and I walked away satisfied and fed well. Will definitely be back. Recommend for all!
