She's checking out upscale Mediterranean at Fig & Olive (CityCentre DC). FOOD: Mediterranean. Fig & Olive has a number of locations across the US. Chef de Cuisine Brent Sick has done a nice job managing the DC kitchen the last few years. Food is well executed here. You'll see a focus on shared plates, and portion-sized entrees (good cross-section of meats & vegetarian). Entree prices are in the $24 to 45 range. ******************* --> Checkout a recent dinner menu (https://www.figandolive.com/dc-menus/#dinner-dc) ******************* SPACE: Large, modern 10,000sq ft space. --> Learn more about Fig & Olive (https://www.figandolive.com/location/fig-and-olive-dc/) +++++++++ ==> Tax/Tip combo is our required 30% tax/tip policy ( see the FAQs (http://www.meetup.com/theweeklydinner/messages/boards/thread/1650845#[masked]) for more details) ==> Limited to 8 slots See you there! Christine ************************************ CLOSEST METRO: Gallery Place / Chinatown [Red, Yellow, Green Lines).About 3 minute walk from the metro (take the H St exit). For directions using the Metro, try using the Trip Planner at the WMATA website (http://www.wmata.com/tripplanner_d/tripplanner_form_solo.cfm). Parking: It's a Sunday! Look for free metered parking in the surrouding neighborhoods. Need to Contact the Restaurant? [i.e. confirm location, notify to the group if running late, etc.]. Text on your phone to[masked] (GOOGLE) and type the restaurant name + the city/state in the message body. Google Business Services (http://www.google.com/mobile/products/sms.html#p=default) will text you back with the address and phone #! ************************************ 1. Limited to 8 slots. 2. If you RSVP "YES" please make sure you can definitely make it. With 6,000+ members and limited seating, we cannot afford no-shows. It's unfair to the other members who would like to attend and also to the organizers who have to explain to the restaurant why the reserved # of guests didn't show (can damage our reputation). No-Show rules apply (http://tinyurl.com/5byotq). 3. Event already full?, waitlist for the event!. Use the Waitlist option (the Organizer for each event will enable this as needed). Also, check back regularly as attendees have been known to cancel up to Noon the day of the event. 4. Billing (add 30% tax/tip to your bill). Remember, include the required 30% for tip / tax in addition to the food / beverages you order as defined in our FAQs (http://diningout.meetup.com/149/messages/boards/view/viewthread?thread=1650845#[masked]). 5. NEW MEMBERS or 1st TIME EVENT GO-ERS, if you have questions about the group, RSVPs, or the overall dining event process, visit our FAQs (http://diningout.meetup.com/149/messages/boards/view/viewthread?thread=1650845) and our No-Show Policy (http://tinyurl.com/5byotq).
