For years I have dreamt about going to the girl + the fig in Sonoma, California. So, when I found out our friends were getting married in Sonoma, my to-do list went like this...in this order:
Make a reservation at the girl + the fig
RSVP for the wedding
Usually one dish on the menu jumps out at me when I go to a restaurant. No joke: everything on the menu yesterday looked amazing. I stared, dumbfounded, unable to decide.
Jake and I finally decided to share the fromage tower - 6 kinds of cheese, 2 kinds of prosciutto, fig compote, fig cake, spiced nuts, caperberries, and olives - and the fig and arugula salad with smoked applewood bacon. And I had a fig apertif to wash it all down. After we were completely stuffed we perused the store area and saw, but didn't buy, fig kisses which are black mission figs dipped in dark chocolate.
I think I'll have to plan an all-fig dinner. Soon.
