Mediterranean | Meatpacking District, Manhattan

I really like the atmosphere of Fig and Olive at 13th street. The restaurant is so spacious and elegant, and the staff are welcoming and efficient. My usual favorites are the selections of Crostini and the Mushroom Croquettes! I crave the croquettes very often, so I order them at home and in the restaurant. Highly recommended! More

Discover New York

When a city never sleeps, waking hours are spent in cafes, diners, bars and restaurants of every shape and size that give New York its unique flavor. Once famous for pizza by-the-slice (local loyalties run deep), black-and-white cookies, and old world, mahogany-paneled steakhouses—the dining rooms of titans of business and other famous folks—Manhattan is now estimated to have 24,000 restaurants, from midtown’s korean barbecue to fast casual vegan burgers. Pillowy pork buns? You got it. French rotisserie? That too. And, of course, there will always be the perfect bagel, preferably toasted dark with smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomato, onions, and capers.
