Reader Pam tells me that State and Fig opened this week at 1114 State St. in La Arcada, replacing Whale Tail Deli. On August 8, 2011 I mentioned that this transition was taking place and that new management had taken over day to day operations of Whale Tail Deli. Husband & wife managers Patrick Casey and Marisa Moran were in escrow at that time. I was told that State & Fig would be an Italian deli concept that will include a wood-burning pizza oven. Instead of a traditional salad bar they were planning an antipasto bar, in addition to pizza, salads, panini sandwiches and more.
