Artichoke lover in Paris for Christmas

My husband & I plan to eat our way through Paris over the holidays.

Much debated, is whether New York or Paris will be the best artichoke city in the world (Castroville doesn't count).

What are your recommendations for the best artichoke dishes in Paris?

We'll probably head up to Brussels for a day or two to so if there are any standouts there also, I'd love to hear them.

k!

Off the top of my head but not available in the winter holidays - Mediteranee's gigantic artichoke with divine sauce. Second, but not in Paris would be Aspen (Colo) D19's artichoke Roman style. Third, again you gotta take Ryan air is Da Giggetto itself in the ghetto in Rome. But that's not playing fair, is it? OK folks; others?

Every time I eat chokes I get a strange aftertaste in the back of my throat. Anyone else? Maybe an alergic reaction. It's unfortunate because I'm in the food industry and end up eating them often and it's a very unpleasant AFTERTASTE,

the aftertaste was probably cynarin, a chemical compound found in artichokes. you might simply not like it, but if you try having your artichokes with a high acid sauvignon blanc, like one from new zealand, the wine can temper the cynarin while complementing the mild, smoky flavor of the choke's flesh.

can't believe it's not butter? i can.
