Photo Gallery: Fig Out at Santa Monica's Fig Bistro

Need a visual aid for your print edition? Jonathan Gold visits Fig in Santa Monica's Fairmont Miramar Hotel ("Garcia's cooking seems to carry within it more than a bit of aggression, and if I were a culinary therapist rather than a critic, I might take the slug of bacon in the brussels sprouts or the presence of tooth-cracking, undercooked pig's ear in the frisée salad to be subtle cries for help''). Click through for Anne Fishbein's spectacular photos and read more in Gold's Counter Intelligence, "Fig Out."
