Comments on Figs Wood Fired Bistro in Newtown?

I have been to Figs a few times, most recently last night. I think the pizza's and salads are best bets: in particular, the salads with cheese: the goat cheese (rich, creamy, fresh) is phenomenal and the feta is delicious. The salmon add-on to the salad is chintzy. Clam/bacon pizza is tasty and the arugula pizza is loaded with fresh greens. The crust is light and crispy and you get a choice of white or whole wheat dough. Skip the Route 6 burger - go to Five Guys. The fries are yummy. Don't order the black bean/portobello burger unless you like cardboard with ketchup, salt and a measly avocado slice. I would interested to hear about other entrees. The service is pleasant although a bit slow. They have a terrific cocktail/martini menu for $7-$8. I like "The Fig Martini". This place is packed on weekends so try it on a weeknight or get there early on Sat or Sun.
