Happy St. (almost) Patrick’s Day, everyone! The luckiest holiday of them all will be upon us this Sunday, March 17th.
We here at the girl & the fig are known for our passion for all things French, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love a good reason to acknowledge and celebrate all of our wonderful friends of Irish descent!
Today we spotlight one of our lovely (and Irish!) General Managers at the girl & the fig, Kim McArdle.
How long have you worked at the fig, and what is your favorite part about working here?
I have worked here for 8 years now, I actually started the day before St. Patrick’s Day! My favorite part about the girl & the fig is the people here.
What is your favorite entree at the fig?
That’s a tough one. I’d say the Duck Confit.
What is your favorite dessert at the fig?
Chocolate & Salted Fig Caramel Trifle.
What is your favorite Rhône wine varietal?
What is a fun fact people wouldn't know about you?
I love art history, and geek out over Antique Roadshow! I also love to thrift shop.
How will you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year?
I will be working brunch at the fig, and will have my Shamrock on, because that’s what Irish people do on St. Patrick’s Day!
Come in to say hi to Kim at the fig on Sunday, or consider joining us at Suite D for our Irish inspired St. Patrick’s Day Sunday Supper, starting at 5:30PM. More information and tickets can be found here. Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone, and don’t forget to wear your green!
