I went to Figs Grand Avenue recently, an the atmosphere completely improved! It is very different than the 360 branch. The atmosphere is very hip and inviting.
The new location is strategic and perfect, as it looks over The Cheese Cake Factory and all the people walking by.
Figs is famous for their stone fired pizzas, so we had to try one. This was their Bronx Bomber which is delicious with perfectly a done crust! The delicate pepperoni was tangy and crispy.. Such a good pizza! They recommend their Portobello Pizza which we will definitely be trying soon!
The lasagna was so satisfying, a cheesy rich dish that’s really yummy.
To end it on a sweet note we tried their famous Peanut Butter Blondie.. Oh my god! Its like a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup elevated to something that’s perfection!! A blend of salty and sweet chocolate in a fluffy yet crispy dough.. beautiful.
Figs Grand Avenue is a great place to have a high quality delicious meal in a great location, It is definitely a great addition to Grand Avenue.

I was invited to tour the new luxury dry cleaners called Jeeves of Belgravia. What’s special about them is they use natural cleaning solvents that cleans designer leather goods. I arrived at their location in Alrai, and was greeted by their highly qualified staff which have all been trained by the original Jeeves London.
This is something shocking to learn, most dry cleaners use a chemical called Perc as their main cleaning agent, it is cheap and effective. It is highly dangerous and causes different kinds of cancer.. it can enter your body through the air and through contact with clothing. They advised me to remove the plastic from Perc dry cleaned clothing outdoors and leave them for two hours before bringing them indoors. Thankfully Jeeves uses only naturally derived cleaning solvents, and so it is completely safe. They said the cleaning solvents are so natural and safe to use, it can be rubbed on your skin.
I brought a few things with me to try out their leather service. Shoes, and a lambskin handbag that had rain drop stains..
Wow, their leather specialist is an artist! We couldn’t believe the before and after result!
The shoes were shined and dyed to perfection! Very professional care.
Thank you Jeeves for the tour! I learned a lot about different leathers, and cleaning techniques! If you want to pamper your clothing by true professionals call Jeeves!
