Fig and Olive is basically the Carrabba’s of people taking industry meetings. This national chain is serving French/Mediterranean/something like that food and everything is pretty by-the-books. You’ll eat a burrata crostini your client will point and mouth the word “yes!” to and a $40 Chilean sea bass you’ll be thankful is going on the company credit card. The bright, open space is certainly nice enough, but it doesn’t matter when everyone in there is eating with someone they assume is dicking them over.
