Fashion Island, the popular Newport Beach outdoor shopping center with the ocean views is welcoming a new addition to its culinary lineup. The olive oil-centric restaurant Fig & Olive is slated to open its sixth U.S. location at the center by summer 2013.

The restaurant will be located on the south side of the shopping center in a new standalone structure. It will accommodate 300 and feature limestone stucco walls, a terra-cotta ceiling, green rosemary and olive trees and other items meant to bring the French Riviera to mind. The menu will include Mediterranean-style items created by executive chef Pascal Lorange as well as a wine list including more than 30 varietals from the South of France, Italy and Spain.
