When France meets the Alamo City, what happens next is a fine-dining explosion of grand proportions at Fig Tree in La Villita! Select lucky San Antonio Elite Yelpers experienced the wonderment first-hand at our recent event: Elites Meet Chef Laurent at Fig Tree!
From being greeted at the door with offerings of wine and champagne, to getting the best seat in the house in the upstairs private dining room, Stephen C can testify to the VIP experience, "Fig Tree spoiled us rotten. We were treated like royalty." As we watched the tiered twinkling patio unravel to the riverwalk, we were treated to the signature margarita – a prickly pear version. The fruity tequila concoction is something San Antonians know all too well, and Fig Tree's version didn't disappoint. The fruit was fresh, the tequila tantalizing, and it was dressed just right!
Chef Laurent's French and Asian fusion appetizer selection worked miracles amongst our group, including converting some, like Ash M, to enjoy dishes they thought they hated! "Every dish he sent out was spot on! Crabcakes? Inhaled them. Tuna Tartare? Made out with it. Something on a wonton that I later found out to be my arch-nemesis, the mushroom? Loved it." In addition, we sampled crispy shrimp kataifi, cheese gougines, and mini beef wellingtons with truffle pâté.
