Fig & Olive: Taste Your Olive Oils Before You Eat

February 24, 2015 by  
Filed under Things to Do

At Fig & Olive, you might be surprised by the starters: shots of olive oil. Although, with a name like Fig & Olive and a wall filled with extra virgin olive oils, it shouldn't be hard to infer what this L.A. eatery is all about. Every dish is prepared with the perfect complementary olive oil, so the shots you'll taste before your meal are actually the EVOO's that will flavor your food—instead of heavy butter. The central ingredient pays homage to the heart-healthy cuisine of the Mediterranean.

Grab a seat at the tasting bar or communal table and pass around some of the popular small plates: fig gorgonzola tartlets, crostini trios, or imported charcuterie and ceviches, which come with Olive Oil Fougasse bread warm from the oven. For dinner, try Provence rosemary lamb chops, drizzled with rosemary garlic olive oil, or grilled branzino served with an 18-year aged balsamic vinegar. Both dishes pair well with the eatery's wines, which are as numerous as the olive oils.

One of Los Angeles's most unique cultural establishments, The Grammy Museum combines dynamic audio-visual exhibits celebrating the history of music in America with top-notch educational programming that encourages kids to both understand and make music themselves.

Museum visitors will enjoy exhibits explaining how the technology of recorded sound has changed over the years, from the dusty 19th-century cylinders and phonograph to the crisp, modern surround sound that fully envelopes the listener. You'll also go behind the scenes and learn what it's like to be backstage at the Grammies award show, while in yet another area of the museum you'll get to act as the sound engineer and create a piece of music that you mix yourself.

The museum also periodically hosts intimate performances by legendary artists like Brian Wilson, Annie Lennox, John Mayer, and Yoko Ono, as well as performances by new, local musicians who are just starting out.
