Miss A Columnist

Grace Yco is the San Diego Editor for Miss A. Denying her writinglust finally caught up with her. She was forced to trade in biology for blogging and hasn’t looked back since (moments spent Hermèsmerized notwithstanding).

She grew up in Japan, considers California home, but feels like she belongs in Paris. In her bag, you will always find three books: one for reading, one for writing and one for planning. Yes she has tablets, but committing to them is another story, and so that relationship remains complicated.

You can find her scouring the web, musing over luxury elitism vs. fashion democracy, and dilly-dallying in rapturous moments of absolute silence (she is not a nun). Grace is also sensitive. And sometimes funny. She’s a professional bikini bard by day and a bookworm by night.

Community Conscious Fig Tree Cafe Opens Third Location In San Diego

One of the newest restaurants to hit Pt. Loma’s Liberty Station is the charming Fig Tree Café.  The third location to open after successful branches in Pacific Beach and Hillcrest, the café is set to host a new influx of locals looking for friendly, neighborhood dining.

The garden patio makes for perfect al fresco ambience, especially for a weekend brunch. To end a stressful workday, steal away to one of the cozy nooks inside the restaurant or have a seat at the bar.  The urban-meets-rustic vibe might just have you ordering the hearty short ribs, but not before you tuck in with the crispy eggplant appetizer.  Be sure to save room for dessert! Order yourself a treat made with the café’s namesake ingredient—fig bread pudding.

Additionally, gluten free options of menu items are generally available and the establishment works to locally source eggs and produce from county farms. In 2011, they were recipients of the World Society For The Protection of Animals (WSPA) Award for offering humanely raised menu options.

Furthermore, Founder and Owner Johan Engman and Executive Chef and Co-Owner Alberto Morreale, are committed to giving back to their communities.  At the Liberty Station location, military members and their families receive 10% off upon presenting their military ID.  For the past two years, Fig Tree Cafe has closed to the public on Christmas Day in efforts to serve members of the military a complimentary gourmet dinner.  This volunteer effort rallies both the restaurant staff and local patrons as a way to support the community’s prominent military presence.  Last year, 100 guests were served and Fig Tree Cafe plans to hold the same event again this holiday season!
