Cuisine with roots in Spain, France, Provence, Italy, Greece, Lebanon, Cyprus and Morocco, is combined in unique and unforgettable ways, just like the large custom made slab Acacia Wood Sharing Tables and the huge wood sculpture complex that greets guests at the entrance to Palm Desert's hippest, new restaurant. Contrasting with the refinement of nearby Carerra marble and Pistaccio onyx, the sculpture's weathered organic form ties indoors to the desert floor seen through huge glass panels.
People go to Figue because of the buzz, but once you've tasted beguiling dishes you'll be hooked on the special something you can't quite put your finger on. Absolutely committed to sourcing the freshest and highest quality ingredients money can buy, newcomers to the 'fresh' concept don't initially recognize that the food really is special, though they know something's uniquely different.
