Artisanal Restaurant Week - Salmon or Steak Frites?

Going to Artisanal tonight, for the first time. I'm usually a huge fan of steak frites (my favorite dish is the steak au poivre at Les Halles). But I'm considering the moroccan salmon special tonight, which sounds interesting. So here's my question -- is the moroccan salmon really terrific at Artisanal, such that I should forego the steak frites?

  1. I had lunch at Artisanal on Monday and ordered the salmon. It was good, but not great. The glaze was nice, but the fish was a little more done than I like. The tabouleh under it was also good but not great.

    1. Get the steak frites, you can't go wrong. But make sure you get a mac 'n cheese side.

        Agreed on the steak frites, if not for the frites alone. Of course, I haven't had the salmon, nor do I particularly like salmon (I find it boring).
