Los Angeles Opening: FigOly

Located in the swank Luxe City Center Hotel and near Figueroa Street and Olympic Boulevard (hence the name), Bravo Top Chef Alex Reznik’s new FigOly creates a tempting Northern Italian-influenced brand of California cuisine (with references to Bellgaio, Cinque Terre, and glorious Toscana).

And where else could one hope to order something as cross-continentally intriguing as warm buffalo mozzarella topped with macerated strawberries and black pepper nestled into a bed m√Ęche? There’s even a Mamma Mia cocktail. A massive al fresco space and private cabanas offer epic views of the Downtown skyline.
