Emily and I were recently invited to a Family Brunch Media Event to preview the Prix-Fixe Brunch menu at the beautiful Newport Beach location of FIG & OLIVE. The restaurant is located at Fashion Island.
Fig & Olive is currently offering a delicious French Riviera three-course Prix-Fixe brunch menu ($28*) on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. They also have a special kids’ meal promotion right now, which is available during brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Guests who order from FIG & OLIVE’s prix-fixe brunch menu will receive a complimentary meal from the kids’ menu (*one main course plus a soft drink per child; children 10 and under).
Emi enjoyed an Arnold Palmer while she browsed the kids’ menu
Pint-size foodies can choose from the following offerings:
- ¼ Roasted Chicken with Herbs de Provence, rosemary, garlic, lemon, and mashed potato
- F&O Pizza with tomato, mozzarella, and basil
- Chicken Fingers served with tomato basil dip and skinny fries
- Fish Croquettes with lemon mayo
- Penne Pasta with olive oil, cheese, or pesto
Love the presentation of the hot tea in this simple white pot!
Take a peek at the Prix-Fixe Brunch Menu.
There were so many delicious items to choose from. It was very difficult for me to narrow it down, but I finally did. I decided to start with the Fig & Olive Salad which was the most delightful combination of flavors in a salad.
I also indulged in some of the of bread & viennoiseries that were brought to the table. The strawberry jam was amazing on the baguette and Emi opted for the chocolate croissant without hesitation. But let’s get back to my Fig & Olive salad…
It was so fresh and yummy! I couldn’t get enough of the figs!
For an entree, I ordered the South of France Poached Eggs with Salmon while Emi ordered the Chicken Fingers served with marinara basil dip and skinny fries from the kids’ menu.
All of the food was just fabulous. I literally had to stop myself from eating because I wanted to save room for dessert. The FIG & OLIVE chefs don’t use butter or cream to cook with (except for the desserts) and everything is olive oil-based. I think this makes a huge difference in the way food tastes. Read about their line of olive oils here.
Our third course was dessert! I think that’s always my favorite part. I ordered Dessert “Crostini”. They’re pistachio shortbread cookies topped with Amarena cherries, mascarpone, and micro-basil.
They were delicious! (I spy a Hidden Mickey in my dessert! Do you see it too? )
I loved everything about FIG & OLIVE Newport Beach. It’s a great location, very close to the beach, and the inside of the restaurant is so open and bright from all of the natural lighting shining through the windows. Every item brought out to our table was delicious and their staff was so delightful. It’s a great place to take the entire family for brunch (or lunch or dinner), especially with this complimentary kids’ meal promotion right now. I look forward my next visit to FIG & OLIVE Newport Beach.
It was a perfect girls’ day out. Thank you FIG & OLIVE Newport Beach!
