Chef/owner Mike Lata and business partner Adam Nemirow finally opened the Ordinary, their Upper King street oyster bar, but they have not abandoned FIG, their flagship restaurant on Meeting Street. Lata and his Chef de Cuisine Jason Stanhope keep the focus on exquisitely prepared fare. From a gorgeous nine vegetable salad to lamb carne cruda and coddled eggs, the dishes that come from the kitchen show deft skill and restraint. New manager David McCarus has replaced Brooks Reitz, who went over to manage the Ordinary, and his experienced and affable knowledge of wine will make your next dinner at this enduring hotspot even more enjoyable. —Stephanie Barna Dish (Winter 2013)
