The Fig & Olive has opened in Fashion Island in a freestanding building just across from the Red O. The building is surrounded by fig and olive trees, and the motif is carried out in the decor. This is one gorgeous restaurant. It welcomes diners with a large outdoor patio with a huge four-sided fireplace in the middle, an elegant lounge area next to the bar, another more casual dining area on the other side of the bar and two very large dining rooms at the rear. High ceilings, two olive trees, huge windows, thick wood beams, a wall of tall and thin golden olive oil bottles and comfortable upholstered chairs and banquets make up one room, while the other features white linens and domed skylights.

Federated Department Stores Inc. announced plans Thursday to convert several Robinsons-May stores into Macy's stores. However, the Cincinnati-based company did not reveal its intentions for stores in Newport-Mesa. In March, Federated announced plans to buy St. Louis-based May Department Stores Co. in a $17-billion deal. Federated owns the Macy's chain and May owns Robinsons-May. Federated shed some light on the futures of several department stores by releasing plans to convert Robinsons-May stores into Macy's stores in 2006.

FRANKIE A 2-year-old tabby cat named Frankie had quite a scare Sunday night when he escaped from his caregivers in Fashion Island's parking structure. He had been taken to the mall by the Community Animal Network for an adoption fair. One minute Frankie was under a sport-utility vehicle, but then he vanished. Volunteers combed the bushes and the parking lot seeking to re-rescue Frankie, without success. Searchers returned to the vehicle, hoping to find the missing cat underneath.
