New Italian eatery graces Singapore's East Coast

The Lo & Behold Group, in collaboration with Italian chef Mirko Febbrile, has opened a new restaurant this month. Fico, or 'fig' in Italian, is located at East Coast Park. The new F&B concept offers food and drinks that are uncomplicated and honest, created in the spirit of cucina povera, a no-waste philosophy that stretches creative limits without sacrificing flavour and fun, said Febbrile, a native of Puglia, in the Southern region of Italy.
He elaborated: "I have fond memories growing up in the Puglian countryside, where we would frequently gather with friends and neighbours over food, wine, and conversation. So from a young age, I felt the impact of the community. It was a nourishing experience that has stayed with me. We built Fico in this very same spirit for our community here in Singapore, not just to enjoy delicious food, but to celebrate the simple pleasures of life."
A centrepiece of the Fico experience is a seafood and vegetable-focused seasonal menu designed for sharing.
"East Coast Park has been a nostalgic escape for many of us here in Singapore, and it felt like the perfect spot for us to showcase a fresh and modern interpretation of cuisine that we love," said Wee Teng Wen, managing partner of The Lo & Behold Group. "We're excited to partner with Mirko, who has built his home here for almost a decade and is so passionate about sharing the Puglian way of life with us all."
