My Saturday in All It's Fabulousness

If you're looking for a hip restaurant in lower Manhattan, keep reading. It seemed like all of NYC's beautiful and professional crowd all had the same idea this weekend which was to visit Fig & Olive in NY's Meatpacking district. For the second time in a week we found ourselves in Manhattan getting off the E/C train at 14th Street. A short walk down the street and around the corner, we crossed over cobble stone streets filled with limos making us wonder who in the world is down here? We didn't see anyone famous but we did find ourselves at one of the hippest restaurants in Manhattan on a Saturday night. Not only was the food good, but the dimly lit Mediterranean restaurant was electric especially when the DJ began spinning hits from the 80s and 90s. My meal included:

Pomegranite Martini ($12)
(Not on the web menu but very tasty!)

Crostini (3 selections for for $9.50)
Crushed Tomato, Olive Oil
Mushroom, Parmesan, Truffle Oil
Shrimp, Avocado, Cilantro,Tomato (sans Avocado)
(All were served on toasted bread)

(Not the actual selections I had but you get the idea)

Main Course ($26)
Grilled shrimp and scallops marinated with pimenton served on saffron rice eggplant tapenade, bell pepper, tomato, garlic - Oregano Olive Oil

Dessert ($8.00)
Vanilla Ice Cream & Orange Chutney
(hated the orange chutney so i skimmed the crusty top of the souffle and ice cream)

Our Saturday included a 9 a.m. soccer game, visit to Target, 3 p.m. bridal shower, 4:45 p.m. 1 year old birthday party, 8 p.m. dinner at Fig & Olive, and 11:42 p.m. train back to Long Island. No wonder we were too tired to attend church on Sunday. Funny, but we woke up at 6:30 a.m., showered, got dressed, curled my hair but never left for church. We were both so exhausted that after breakfast I went back to bed and slept until 11:30 a.m. It's been years since I've been able to do that. It felt so good. Really. Good.
