Taste So Cal’s freshest upstart flavor combos: Rooted in heritage, harvested in Santa Monica.
FIG is not just a hotel restaurant. It’s a critically acclaimed Los Angeles-area neighborhood bistro that happens to be in a hotel — “a raging success,” as the L.A. Times notes. FIG at the Fairmont Miramar is also the best bistro near Santa Monica Beach. Try sweet, peak-season heirloom tomatoes and burrata with pickled pearl onions and basil or wood-blistered winter squash pizza; plump market oysters in red-wine shallot mignonette or tender Liberty Farm duck breast with sage spaetzle. Sample Chef’s housemade pasta or chat with our fromager about the best farmstead blues and goat cheeses.
Trained in the classic French tradition, FIG Executive Chef Jason Prendergast sources every dish on his seasonally-inspired menu from local farmers and purveyors: “simply prepared items with a focus on flavor and quality,” as L.A. Confidential says; in other words, bright, lusciously colorful and exquisitely presented place-based cuisine. Chef meets specialty foragers and visits local farmers’ markets several times a week, and when you dine here, you will, too. Take a seat on the sunny garden terrace, or with the regulars at the communal table and pewter bar — perfect for singles or date-night couples. Or reserve our intimate private dining room for groups of up to 20. The vibe is warm, inviting wine bar-meets-airy-California bistro in casual, understated elegance.

FIG @ FIVE
Westside locals call this the best happy hour in LA, and they should know. Tuck in to FIG’s favorite dishes for half price over fine wine, craft brew and seasonal house cocktails — all 50% off. The fun unfolds seven nights a week from 5 to 6. Not surprisingly, FIG AT FIVE is always packed, so show up early to claim your seat.
Kegs & Eggs
Take your time and indulge at a leisurely weekend brunch. We serve all Saturday/Sunday FIG brunch entrées with endless sangria or draft beer. Order classics with a modern twist like lemon-ricotta pancakes with market-fresh blueberry butter or our signature smoked bacon and egg pizza pie.
We have our own fromager (AKA cheese guru) at FIG, and Eric Brazel loves talking artisan cheese with guests. Ask this professionally trained master anything: how to tell the best Italian Gorgonzola or why cheese should be served at room temperature? Milk vs sheep, goat or water buffalo? Then let Eric prepare a winning combo of international and domestic delectables. He is at your service Tuesday through Sunday evenings.Learn More
