Making Dallas Even Better

Somebody Help This Poor Girl: Artichokes in Dallas

She’s looking for something that seems so simple, yet, come to think of it, out of “style”:

Nancy I’m looking for a DFW restaurant that serves artichokes – not artichoke dip, or artichoke hearts on a salad, not even a stuffed artichoke. I want an honest to god, artichoke (pick the leaves, scrape them across your teeth).   Not since a trip to Utah several years ago, have I found a restaurant that offers one of my favorite foods.  (And cooking them myself never turns out very well.)

    Rise. The artichoke is my favorite thing on the menu. Simply sublime vinagrette served with it.

    Houston’s/Hillstone/whatever you want to call it has grilled artichokes with remoulade. I’ve also had them at Bolsa but of course you never know when they’ll have them on the menu.

  • Aria

    Houston’s has amazing grilled artichokes! But call first. They’re not on the menu and they don’t always have them.

    Rise No. 1 – for the traditional way of serving a good steamed artichoke, as you’re describing. The one they have is delicious. I get it frequently.

    Hillstone (aka Houston’s) serves awesome grilled artichokes, but they often run out, so call ahead

  • Klgarner

    Don’t know if they still do them, but Stoneleigh P used to have artichokes. I’ll second Rise, fabulous.

  • LMW

    The Tavern in Fort Worth has fire roasted artichokes with chipolte sauce. During happy hour from 3 – 7pm every day they are half price.

  • Foodie

    Cheesecake Factory – whole grilled artichokes.

  • Cin

    Tei Tei on Henderson – it rocks.

    Rise No. 1 serves a good artichoke with a great sauce.

    The Grape on Greenville!

  • Brooks Anderson

    I was gonna post the same. They have whole artichokes served with a housemade dip. It’s fantastic!

    After several recommendations here, went to Rise Saturday afternoon specifically for the artichoke. A fine repast for a gloomy afternoon.

    After several recommendations here on Friday, I went to Rise Saturday afternoon specifically for the artichokes. Lovely sauce. A fine repast for a gloomy afternoon.

    Have to agree with the others – Rise has the best artichokes in Dallas. I crave them!
