DESPITE A CAPABLE KITCHEN, FIGO IS NOT QUITE THERE YET
Above: The Brussels sprout salad features crispy pancetta, caramelized onions and ricotta cheese. Below: Figo’s tiramisu is creamy and pudding-like.
By Dale F. Bentson
here is a lot to like about Figo in downtown Palo Alto. The food is a cut above and the ambiance chic and inviting, with good libations and competitive prices. There is a disconnect, though: a variety of miscues I experienced on three of four visits, holding the restaurant back. Owner Gianni Ch i loi ro scrubbed his more casua l Pasta? concept and rechristened the restaurant in January (“Figo” roughly translates to “cool” as in to be cool), reconstituting, remodeling, redefining the space. New chairs, tables, contemporary lighting, and wood and art-glass partitions were added. An Italian brick oven capable of reaching 900 degrees was installed for pizza baking. The space was lightened up. The bar and dining rooms are still separate spaces but much more eloquently delineated. For lunch one day, I ordered the organic greens salad ($8) with cherry tomatoes and house vinaigrette. Someone in the kitchen must have mixed up
proportions; there was so much vinegar my eyes teared and I choked on the first bite. The replacement salad was nearly devoid of dressing. Fortunately, the meal was saved with the excellent orecchiette with sausages ($14). The ear-shaped pasta evenly held the slightly piquant tomato sauce. Fresh parmesan was grated on table-side. The plating was artistic and appetizing. That day, I was drinking ice tea, and despite my having an empty glass for most of the meal, the only refill came after I paid the bill and was gathering my belongings to depart. Dinner appetizers were uniformly good. Brussels sprouts salad ($9) was a personal favorite. The sprouts had been sauteed with crispy pancetta, ricotta, mushrooms, caramelized onions and white balsamic vinegar. The mushrooms added little in flavor or texture, but overall it was an excellent starter. One evening, my companion ordered the sformato di gamberi ($11), a flan of shrimp, asparagus and mascarpone blanketed with a shellfish bisque. Unfor-

tunately, the waiter wrote the wrong item and my dining companion was delivered an excellent shrimp cocktail ($13) instead, with fresh burrata mozzarella, chopped tomatoes and basil dressing.
Figo boasts a full bar with specialty cocktails
Figo’s bar is set apart from its dining room.
Realizing his mistake, the waiter offered to bring the correct dish. My companion, though, was happy with the shrimp cocktail and told him so. A half hour later, when we were three-quarters finished with our entrees, the waiter brought the sformato and plunked it on the table. We didn’t know what to make of that. I am happier to report that the sformato patate ($11), a flan of potatoes, zucchini and mascarpone cheese with a “truffle parmesan fondue,” was wellprepared, savory, and gooeydelicious.

cheese, a soft cowâ€™s cheese from northeast Italy, was ambrosial. The ragu was meaty-lush and thick, the gnocchetti the size of miniature marshmallows and just as soft. Mouthwatering dish. The pleasantly aromatic agnello scottadito ($28) was a rack of grass-fed Australian lamb with mushrooms and roasted potatoes. The four long-ribbed bones were plump with juicy meat despite their long voyage. The grilled Mediterranean branzino filet ($26), skewered and enveloped in artichoke hearts, was served with a cake
of sauteed farro and vegetables. The fish was fresh and the slightly bitter artichokes coaxed out subtle flavors of the sea bass. One visit I reserved just for the pizza. With house-made dough, the Figo pizza ($19) was topped with aged Parma prosciutto, house-made burrata mozzarella and wild arugula. When the pizza was delivered, I drooled. Sadly, it was barely warm and cold by the time I got to the second slice. At that hour, there was only a handful of other diners: no reason for cold pizza. As for desserts, I loved Figoâ€™s
take on tiramisu ($8). It was more pudding-like than the traditional cake and was served in a bowl instead of on a plate. Even so, all the ingredients were in evidence with a bit of added whimsy: a long ladyfinger impaled in the cake. Not so successful was the pistachio panna cotta ($8). Panna cotta should be amongst the lightest of desserts. This version could have been cut with a knife and fork. It was dense, rubbery and unappealing. For libations, Figo boasts a full bar with specialty cocktails. On the wine side, labels are split between the West Coast and Italy except for one inexplicable Argentine label. Prices are under control with bottles starting at $34. More than two dozen wines are available by the glass. I am not sure where the disconnect is at Figo. The kitchen is more than capable, the waitstaff sincere and friendly, the ambi-
ance pleasing. It could be a lack of staff communication, lack of training, lack of restaurant instincts. Diners shouldnâ€™t find experiences flawed on multiple
visits. Figo could be one of the best places to dine downtown, but until they tighten up their service, it is just another place to eat on University Avenue. V

AT ANY PRICE --1/2
The Midwest farm, she ain’t what she used to be, many long years ago. That’s the sociological underpinning of Ramin Bahrani’s new film “At Any Price,” in which agribusiness puts the squeeze on an Iowa farming family. Henry Whipple (Dennis Quaid) would like to see at least one of his sons show an interest in one day running the farm, but the elder boy, Grant, has relinquished his golden-boy status and gone away to see the world, leaving his younger brother, Dean (Zac Efron), to feel the brunt of Dad’s expectations. With Henry’s farm leveraged in the millions, he’s had to double as a salesman for Liberty Seeds, a Monsanto surrogate that has effectively taken ownership of American farms by enforcing its patents on GMO corn. Still, if Dean evaporates, Henry resonates, as emblematic of an American economy — and American soul — in crisis. And even if making a move toward the mainstream, after such micro-indies as “Man Push Cart” and “Chop Shop,”
stymies Bahrani a bit in his conflicting impulses toward realism and the broader sweep and cinematic classicism afforded by the wide-open, widescreen-friendly Midwest setting and movie stars (not to mention the race cars), the subject of the changing farm landscape feels fresh, and the stinging critiques of corporate greed and mutable personal values are enough to make “At Any Price” a thought-provoking drama. Rated R for sexual content including a strong graphic image, and for language. One hour, 45 minutes. — P.C.
THE GREAT GATSBY --1/2
It would be easy to have a knee-jerk reaction to Baz Luhrmann’s 3D “The Great Gatsby,” a movie that’s practically begging for such a response. But we’d do well to remember the old saw that there’s no accounting for taste. As on the page, one Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) tells the tale, in hindsight, of his unusual friendship with nouveau riche millionaire Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), whose pointedly larger-than-life lifestyle suggests a uniquely American facade. Gatsby lives in the hope of reclaiming lost love Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan), now married to “brute of a man” Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton).

Their Jazz Age tale plays out in Long Island, with Gatsby’s shoreside West Egg mansion positioned to longingly overlook the Buchanans’ East Egg property, its dock’s green beacon a symbol of Gatsby’s “extraordinary gift for hope.” For the drama to be effective, one must be able to buy into these characters as real people. While we can understand Gatsby as head-over-heels lover and all-American con artist, Carraway as a destined-for-disillusionment heroworshipper, and Daisy as a tragic, tragedyinducing wastrel, Luhrmann approaches the story and directs his actors in ways that hold them at a distance from us, making it difficult to buy into real people in a real world. The overkill plays less as bold art and more as lack of trust in the source material. As Nick says of one of Gatsby’s legendary parties, “It’s like an amusement park.” Exactly, old sport. Rated PG-13 for some violent images, sexual content, smoking, partying and brief language. Two hours, 23 minutes. — P.C.
IN THE HOUSE --1/2
The teachers and students of Lycee Gustave Flaubert have returned from summer vacances for another year that promises to be soul-deadening. The big new idea? Uniforms for students. But when literature teacher Germain Germain sits down to his first set of student writing, he finds a diamond in the rough — and a world of trouble. Here begins “In the House,” the latest picture from French filmmaker Francois Ozon (“Swimming Pool”). Adapted by the director from Juan Mayorga’s play “The Boy in the Last Row,” “In the House” amounts to an insinuating mash-up of “Election,” “Rear Window” and “Adaptation.” As 16-year-old Claude Garcia (Ernst Umhauer) begins producing seductive prose, he begins having a dangerous effect on his new mentor, Germain (Fabrice Luchini). Claude’s homework assignments describe his real-life obsession with the upper-middle-class home of a classmate: Claude idealizes the place and the stability it represents even as he embarks (unwittingly) on threatening the stability of others. Rated R for sexual content and language. One hour, 45 minutes. — P.C.
IRON MAN 3 --1/2
This ambitious third installment in the “Iron Man” franchise offers (Robert) Downey (Jr.) another opportunity to shine. He continues to add layers to an already complex character and infuse the often somber genre with comedic charm (this is a comic-book movie, after all). Despite a somewhat slow start and occasional plot missteps, “Iron Man 3” ultimately soars thanks to its charismatic leading man and director Shane Black’s man-on-wire balancing act of humor and action. After helping defend Earth from a horde of alien invaders and nearly dying in the process (as seen in 2012’s “The Avengers”), Tony Stark is content tinkering in his Malibu mansion and sharing a bed with his girlfriend/personal assistant Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow). But he’s quickly reminded of the pitfalls of being a highprofile superhero with the introduction of two new adversaries: Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce), a fellow tech genius and founder of A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics); and a shadowy Osama bin Laden-esque terrorist known as The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). The visual effects and action sequences are stunning, especially when Tony’s Iron Man armor(s) take flight. The costuming, however, is more hit-and-miss. Iron Man, with Downey playing pilot, continues to launch Marvel into the cinematic stratosphere. Rated PG-13 for intense sci-fi action/violence and brief suggestive content. 2 hours, 20 minutes. — T.H.
