Mmm, Gourmet Junk Food: The Fig's Santa Monica Pier Centennial Menu

santamonicapier20s.JPG

Wow can you believe that our Santa Monica Pier is gonna be 100 years old? An amazing feat in a city that rails against age and is big on “out with the old and in with the new.” The actual Centennial Day ceremony takes place on September 9 at the pier and involves a 100-foot cake, Robert Redford and a large-scale fireworks. But The Fig at the Fairmont in Santa Monica will also be doing some pre-celebrating of the century-old landmark in its own special way. With a gourmet twist on pier junk food classics:

ON A STICK

  • Cheese on a Stick $6
  • Wagyu Corn Dog $9
  • Lobster Corn Dog $7
  • Scotch Duck Egg $7

ON BREAD

  • Pancetta Burger with Sun Dried Tomato Relish $14
  • Cheese Steak Sandwich $10
  • Bratwurst on a Pretzel Roll $9
  • Cashew Butter, Roaring 40s and Jelly Sandwich $8

IN A BASKET

  • Parmesan Fries $6
  • Sweet Potato Fries $5
  • Blue Cheese Filled Buffalo Chicken $9
  • Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers $8

And yes, I’ve already asked if they were gonna do special cocktails, too, for the occasion. Spiked root beer floats and milkshake cocktails! But unfortunately, there are no plans for that…but I did get them thinking.

In any case, you can enjoy your lobster corn dogs and bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers either at the restaurant or take it to go and walk down to the pier to make the tourists envious. This special “Pre Pier” menu will be available for lunch and dinner starting Thursday, September 3 and run through to centennial day on Wednesday the 9th.

EVENT: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3 to WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9
