Restaurant Week: Artisanal

For restaurant week, I decided to go to Artisanal. After having been a fan of their cheese for years it was a great opportunity to eat at the French bistro.

The cavatelli carbonara was a great appetizer, with chunky pasta, bits of cauliflower and pancetta in a thin creamy cheese sauce.

The chicken under a brick was incredible, with perfectly salty crispy skin and super rich mashed potatoes in a garlic broth.

The short rib was rich in flavor, melted in the mouth and came over a bed of carrots, turnips, onions and Parmesan polenta.

The chocolate marquis was a rich dense brownie served with caramel sauce.

The creme brulee was amazing and left me wanting more. It was super creamy with a crunchy top layer - a perfect example of all a creme brulee should be.

  1. The chocolate marquis looks to die for!!! I've always been 'meaning to go' to Artisanal..this might just convince me to go for it!
