Stuffed Baby Artichokes @ Vincent’s
Baby artichokes are so small that you can eat them entirely, stem and leaves and teeny soft spines and all. The stuffing at Vincent’s is more like a heavy coating, with bread crumbs, herbs, and garlic. Surrounding them are slices of prosciutto and parmesan cheese. Fantastic! When we discovered this at the Uptown Vincent’s, even my daughter–not one to try new dishes often–loved it at first taste. A great appetizer, large enough to split.
