Fodor's Expert Review Fig & Olive

$$$ Midtown East Mediterranean

Both the cozy tables and the long white marble bar are great options at this bi-level Mediterranean spot with a loyal following. Lunch is an ideal time to partake of shared plates like mix-and-match crostini, cheeses, and meats—not to mention soups, salads, and panini; at night, the place becomes more see-and-be-seen. The food is still as attractive to the palate as the diners are to the eyes, though. Feast on truffle risotto or rosemary-spiked pork chops and finish it all off with the crème brûlée cheesecake.
