Pizza and sushi are, respectively, very high on my crave list, and I had the opportunity to savor both this weekend.
I'd never been to Artichoke, so Brian and I headed over to Stuy Town before a concert to pick up a few slices. I grabbed a Margarita, he, the signature Artichoke and a Sicilian and off we went.
Artichoke is the place to go if you want a departure from the thin, crispy New York style pies. The crust is thick, chewy and greasy, in the best way. Probably the most crave-worthy is the Artichoke slice, pictured above, which features some sort of super thick cream and spinach sauce topped with cheese and artichokes. Heyyyooo.
Tonight I dined with the fabulous Meredith Doyle, and decided to check out a South Street Seaport restaurant, Suteishi, apparently a gem amongst many a bad tourist destination.
I ordered spicy tuna AND spicy salmon, because I can't get enough of either, and if I order anything else anywhere, I alwayss wish I had ordered spicy-something. Meredith ordered the avocado roll and a king crab roll. Everything looked lovely, tasted wonderful, and came out swiftly. And we got to sit outside with a view of the Brooklyn Bridge. Definitely worth it, especially if you live down here.
