When OTC closed its doors earlier this Summer, its owner/operator Michael Sullivan promised a new restaurant would emerge from the space soon — and it seems he made good on his promise. The new restaurant taking its place is Golden Fig, which is officially open for business today at 6 p.m.
Consider it a grown-up version of OTC. The menu showcases simple "farmhouse" fare, with a focus on ingredients, created by Executive Chef Tomas Prado, who has done stints at The Bazaar by Jose Andres, DB Bistro Moderne and My Ceviche. The menu features dishes like Virginia ham croquettes, charcuterie boards with items like housemade lardo and duck prosciutto; a mango foie gras parfait; buttermilk fried chicken plenty of seasonal vegetable side dishes and classic desserts.
The space has gotten a makeover too. The interior continues with the farmhouse theme featuring white walls, dark wooden bar, a moss graffiti mural, exposed ceilings, wrought iron and Edison bulb chandeliers and a floor-to-cieling grass wall in the back.
Golden Fig is now open for dinner service only, with plans to add lunch, weekend brunch and Happy Hour in the near future. Reservations can be made by calling 305-374-4612.
