Relaxed and approachable, this downtown Charleston, S.C., gem serves seasonally inspired food using locally sourced, sustainable ingredients, many of which come straight from the farmer. Chef Mike Lata offers a rotating menu of simple yet refined classics like fish stew in cocotte and suckling pig confit with carrots, greens, and mustard jus, and also emphasizes some lesser-known seafood, like banded rudderfish with butterbeans, mint, lemon confit, and olives. The cuisine may appear to be simple at first glance, but with the freshest, highest-quality ingredients available, the food speaks for itself. -- Dan Myers

If Chef Mike Lata is there, ask your server to have Mike send you out whatever he is feeling for the night. Menu always changes but 2 great staples: Vegetable plate and all desserts!

The menu is driven by what is local and available, and the vegetables tend to be the stars of the plate. [Eater 18 Member]

The name is an acronym for "food is good." What more do you need to know?

I travel frequently & look for restaurants with a rotating menu based on what is available locally and by far FIG is the best I have found to date. One this trip the Ricotta Gnocchi were the BOMB!

The razor clam ceviche is the best ceviche in Charleston, which is why its on our list of The Tastes That Make the City: Charleston.

Ricotta gnocchi with lamb bolognese, little pillows of joy. Pate was the best I've ever had!

If you're only going to have one meal in Charleston, this is where to get it. There's a full menu and amazing service at the bar, so if you can't get a table, try anyway and grab a seat at the bar.

Difficult to get a reservation but they take walk ins at the bar and community table. Come early or be prepared to wait...
