Considering that most of the options near the intersection of Belmont and Sheffield are fast-casual spots or late-night eats, Figo is a nice addition to the neighborhood. It’s a wine bar serving reasonably priced small plates, with pastas that are all under $15. The comfortable atmosphere is enough to make this a good spot for a weeknight date or a stop before a night out at the Vic. If you don’t have tickets to a show, you can just split a bottle of wine and watch as drunk people file into Trader Todd’s for karaoke across the street.
