Inspired by the season: Fig Restaurant

Winter is lurking and the temperature is changing, and so are our palates.

Light dishes and salads are less favourable at this time of year, while more filling hearty meals take priority.

Fig Restaurant at The Elms Hotel’s newly appointed head chef Matt Davis is designing an updated seasonal menu. He’s ready to bring sensational comfort food to your plate over the chilly months. Matt is returning to Fig, having worked there ten years ago before heading overseas, and is excited to deliver the high quality food the restaurant is known for.

“We’re looking to have a nice winter menu flowing through. We’ll be bringing all those winter favourites to the menu like pork belly, slow-cooked lamb shoulder, and beef cheeks. Then dessert favourites, sticky date, apple crumble, and fresh doughnuts,” he says.

They strive to use only local ingredients where possible, taking advantage of Canterbury and the South Island’s incredible produce which allows the kitchen to be creative in the dishes they craft.

The elegant dining room complements the menu perfectly and makes for the best spot for a bite. It’s adorned with crushed velvet chairs, lush green wallpaper, wooden and leather accents, and bold draping curtains.

Indulge in Fig Restaurant’s luxury winter menu today, bookings are encouraged at the website.
