Review of Figa—4½ stars

Figa received 4½ stars from today’s Taste & Tell review in the Maine Sunday Telegram.

The chef at Figa had me in the palms of her capable hands within two bites of the eggplant Napoleon ($6), one night’s appetizer special. Humble eggplant had been transformed into discs of creamy tenderness and lacy, crisp edges as slightly browned goat cheese chimed in with sour and tangy richness.

  1. its cramped, overpriced, inconsistent and i really wanted to like it, but after being told on two seperate occasions that i couldnt wait at the bar for a beer while waiting for my reservation (luckily the snug is nearby and friendly) – i’m done with Figa. There are too many other places with better food for the same price in Portland. So disappointing after such a long wait and lofty expectations.
