When does lunch "at the mall" look this beautiful? When you are lucky enough to get a table at Figs by Todd English at The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
We loved the fresh herb and spice crusted bread with olive oil and it tided us over until our salads arrived (which was promptly). My mom and I both added grilled chicken to our Roasted Pear Salad (baby spinach, roasted pears, goat cheese, toasted almonds) and we marveled at the warm brown butter-sour cherry vinaigrette. I must learn how to make that salad dressing - it instantly earned a top spot on my "favorite salad dressing" list. Go Todd!
The restaurant atmosphere is very Pottery Barn (re:black tables, stemless wine glasses, dark art), the staff is friendly and the menu is spot on. Perfect for lunch with clients, perfect for sustenance on a long shopping day, perfect for lunch with you mom. Bravo.
