In Sao Paolo, Brazil  there is a restaurant called Figueira Rubaiyat, which means "fig tree" in Portuguese.  The front of the restaurant has outdoor seating for 60 people.  In the middle there is  a fig tree that was 150 years old. 

It is as tall as any oak tree in your neighborhood and three times the width of any tree you've ever witnessed.  Underneath the tree is a fine net which catches the figs before they hit you in the head.  They are known for their steaks.
