Fried Baby Artichokes at Tre, NYC

by mike

Tre is a great date spot and a very solid choice for Italian food.

The fried baby artichokes combined the texture of fried potatoes with a heavy olive oil veggie flavor. The tips of each artichoke leaf were crispy and perfectly burnt, and flakes of artichoke fall off as you crunch down on your first bite. I also had fried mozzarella which was deliciously chewy with a spicy marinara sauce.┬áThe bread served was also┬ávery good – both white and whole grain with a tasty chickpea dip.

The only negative points I would give are for the small pinky hole on the coffee cup!

8/10 on the chokescale.
