Fig & Olive in Newport Beach is launching the new Aperitivo Menu ($7-9), served from 4-6 p.m. daily in the restaurant’s bar & lounge area. Literally, “aperitivo” or “aperitif” is a pre-meal drink whose scope is to stimulate appetite, but it has come to signify the ritual of going out for a drink at restaurants and bars throughout European coastal towns. Crafted by Executive Chef Pascal Lorange, FIG & OLIVE’s menu features appetizer-style tasting plates ($7) from the South of France, Spain, and Italy served alongside refreshing cocktails ($9) such as FIG & OLIVE’s signature Piscine with champagne and strawberries, as well as wines by the glass ($9).
