Todd English’s Figs café features elegant and modern American takes on Italian classics. With a nuanced palate and love for both the simplicity of ingredients and the invention of new takes on the tried and true, they experiment with flavor almost as much as they stick with old-world recipes. From the brick oven wood-fired Large pizza and pastas to a variety of inventive, if beautifully intimidating, salads, they prove their merit in each course. Be sure to prepare yourself for a lot of ingenious options, such as Short Ribs Ravioli and Chicken Parmesan Sliders, as the menu alone can keep you busy for some time. With two local stores to choose from they are also quite convenient to find.
Figs is located on the 1st level of the Grand Avenue – The Avenues (2220 0698) and on the 2nd floor of the Food Lounge at 360 MALL (2530 9559). You can follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @figskuwait.
