Who says nothing in life is free? At Fig & Olive’s new Aperitivo Happy Hour, which runs nightly from 4.30 to 7 p.m. — and then again from 9 p.m. to closing — guests are offered light bites when they order a cocktail.
The complimentary menu includes, as shown above, crudités, bruschetta, dips, roasted vegetables, and seasonal focaccia. The cocktail list has such seasonal special drinks as Piscine (sparking wine served on ice with fresh strawberries), Blood Orange Rossellini (passionfruit vodka, blood orange purée, and fresh citrus juices, served straight up with an orange twist) and Fraises Sauvages (gin with muddled strawberries, orgeat, and freshly squeezed lemon juice topped with sparking wine). Plus, if you come on a Thursday evening, you can also get a free glass of rosé from a different winery in Provence each week — a great way to learn about the region.
