Recently I've been trying to cook artichokes, since I had only eaten them frozen from Trader Joe's or soaking in jars full of oil. However, my efforts to cook actual artichokes--steamed, and in a raw salad (baby artichokes)--have been really unsatisfying. So I want to know whether I don't like artichokes or just suck at cooking them.
Therefore, where can I get the best preparation of an artichoke in Manhattan? Steamed is probably the best, although other ways to eat them (with minimal accompaniment) are okay too.
