    I love Artisinal! Its one of those places thats trendy, but not a scene like Balthazar and others. You've gotta have the cheese fondue and/or the cheese platter for the table! So good! I also love the gougeres. I love the sunday brunch there also!

      I love it - try the rillettes. Of course, all the cheese is divine!

          Gougeres are good there too.

          Chicken under a brick seems to be a signature dish

                A lot of us have been there. What questions do you have specifically? I haven't had a bad dish there. Cheesecake is a must.

                  I second that the cheesecake -- very different from what I expected. It's creamy, rich and light at the same time. A definite winner. I also really love the stilton and sauternes fondue. I also dip my fries in the fondue. The fries, by the way, are very well done as well. I also love the onion soup and the mac and cheese. The cheese and wine flights are also not to be missed. Not the biggest fan of the gougeres. They're good, but IMHO nothing extraordinary. I preferred the gougeres at Eleven Madison Park (when they used to have them).
