I recently discovered that one of my good friends claims to hate the choke - one of my alltime favorites (I eat 'em steamed with an olive oil - lemon - honey sauce). Anyhow at dinner we had an app of some baby chokes which he really liked; but i thought they were so so. Any thoughts of where I can a tasty artichoke based dish????
Bianca on Bleecker serves fried baby artichokes, which are not as good as the ones I remember having in Rome, but are still pretty good - hopefully those aren't what you just described as "so so." If anyone knows of a place in Manhattan that does the artichoke smashed flat & fried really well, I'd like to hear about it.

Morandi...had that appetizer yesterday, and it was phenominal. They had an appetizer special with sauteed baby chokes in this amazing sauce...yummy to soak up with bread. They also have a fried version, as well.
Gusto, on Greenwich at Perry, serves excellent fried artichokes.
Pasta Pesce on Bleecker (NOT the one on 9th ave, which is awful) serves a delicious steamed artichoke stuffed with seasoned breadcrumbs and butter, yum.
