Put This In Your Mouth: Artichoke Salad
Starting on January 1, our beloved Meadowsweet will be eliminating tipping and raising prices from 16 to 20 percent, allowing for better wages for employees. While our wallets are crying, gotta give them props. We're on board, and guys, we are not kidding about the Artichoke Salad. This salad is delicious, and what better to assure you than a restaurant recommendation from Michelin Guide 2016:
“One of Brooklyn's most beloved venues, this chill yet sophisticated destination is illuminated by a soaring glass-fronted façade, whitewashed brick walls, and reclaimed pine furnishings. While the original mosaic-tiled floors lend a stunning, old-timey accent that hearkens back to the building's former life as a printer's shop built in the late 19th century, Meadowsweet is clearly rooted in the present day thanks to Chef Polo Dobkin and his skilled team.
Best described as enticingly familiar and temptingly novel Americana with whiffs of the Mediterranean woven throughout, the menu is a delight every time. Each composition is beautifully plated, as in a bowlful of egg-rich tajarin slicked with intoxicating black truffle butter and served with frilly bits of sautéed hen-of-the-woods mushrooms as well as a showering of grated parmesan.
A meaty block of wild halibut is expertly seared, presented cracker-crisp skin side up, and adorned with morels, asparagus, and pea shoots-or whatever the season's finest produce happens to be. Desserts are equally impressive, like the homespun but sophisticated cylinder of warm blueberry crumble presented with lemon curd and ice cream.” -Michelin Guide
