Atascadero has a new restaurant that gets this foodie’s vote! Fig or Fig Good Food – a tiny place with big flavors. Cute place with a few tables inside and then some outside seating, both front and back. All dishes looked wonderful but my choice was the ‘Frenchie’ sandwich that has a surprising combo of fig chutney, brie, greens on foccaccia (heated – sort of pannini style – to my thinking). Yum, quite memorable and well done up for not a huge amount of cash. They have homemade dishes including take out/eat in rotisserie chicken, pasta dishes, assortment of main dish or side salads, soups, and inviting deserts……..a bit of everything. It’s just down Traffic Way a block or so from the Carlton and is co-owned by two very nice people who are friends that are married to different people – Greg Perello and Christine Dillow. Try it but only during the week from 11 – 7. And if the thought of what to cook for dinner brings you to your knees, just stop by on the way home for their take out chicken with some wild rice or herb roasted potatoes…..heaven after a long day! One more plus for those of us who are thinking green……their plasticware is biodegradable!
