Boston-Lunch at Figs

Print Friendly and PDF

We arrived at Figs just when it opened so avoided the long line that accumulated while we ate our lunch.Surprisingly small, but the wait staff weaved in and out with panache serving large rectangular pizzas with thin crisped crust smeared with just enough sauce and generously topped with a variety of ingredients. We ordered the cod cakes, a special that day and weren't disappointed. They were lovely fish and mashed potato cakes perfectly fried and served with a lemon aioli. Our pizza was half and half fried calamari and shrimp. The calamari was tender and delicious, but the shrimp wasn't all that special. Next time I visit, I will order Todd English's signature pizza, Fig and Prosciutto, a crisp rosemary crust with fig and balsamic jam, prosciutto & gorgonzola cheese. Figs is a great casual bistro with excellent pizza if you don't mind being in close quarters with other diners.
