Artisan always placed high on our list of exceptional eating establishments prior to the move to their present location. We recently visited them for two evening meals, one weekend and one midweek. Both of experiences were good but could have been better with a little forethought by the restaurant's architect - design maven. The problem is not the food which was for us as delicious as ever, beautifully presented, and professionally served. No the problem was the lighting; it is simply sub par. How do we know this? Well when you can't distinguish the print on the menu to read it you know there is a problem. This issue stems from the location of the overhead fixtures viz a vie the tables. The lighting - table locations are not in sync providing some bright spots but also some very shady locations. Woe to those in the shade unless of course you are with someone you don't want to be seen with. Our suggestion to Artisan: take out the suspended warehouse fixtures and replace them with lighting that provides each table with its own cone of comfort.
