Fried Baby Artichokes at Tre, NYC
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. The bread served was also very 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.
