Fig and Olive-- New Years Eve

New Years Eve is just around the corner. What do you all have planned? On Thursday, December 31, 2015, Fashion Island’s olive oil oasis, FIG & OLIVE Newport Beach, invites guests to raise a champagne flute to 2016 at their elegant White & Gold Party, which will celebrate the year’s end with a four-course prix fixe fête ($150*) from 8:30pm to close, along with a lively cocktail reception ($100*) from 9pm to close. Throughout the evening, guests may entertain their taste buds with the event’s two holiday menus, inspired by Owner/Founder, Laurent Halasz’s passion for seasonal cuisine from the French Riviera.
White & Gold Prix Fixe Dinner
Beginning at 8:30pm to 1am, the night’s prix fixe table will be set with four courses of provincial, wintertime fare, including Butternut Squash & Chestnut Soup and Lamb Chops accompanied by goat cheese gnocchi and braised eggplant with honey. Other menu items include:
·         Foie Gras – silky foie gras paired with a sweet fig chutney
·         Seared Sea Scallops – crisply seared sea scallops served alongside braised endives and truffle dressing
·         Filet Mignon – plump filet mignon accompanied by gratin Dauphinois and onion confit

White & Gold Cocktail Reception

From 9pm to 1am, the evening’s cocktail hour will take place by fireside on the restaurant’s outdoor patio, featuring a menu of beautifully crafted small bites, such as Mushroom Croquettes drizzled with white truffle oil as well as Salmon Crudo seasoned with citrus, dill, and scallion. Hors d’oeuvres will be circulated through the stroke of midnight on January 1, 2016. Additional tastes include:
·         Miniature Fig & Gorgonzola Tartlet – fresh figs and crumbles of gorgonzola cheese baked atop a flaky disc of puff pastry
·         Zucchini Carpaccio – thinly sliced fresh zucchini sprinkled with parmesan and pine nuts
