Feast of Saint Valentine at Artichoke

Well, it was a feast of sorts for two. And I certainly didn't expect an incidental sign in the form of cracks in a glass from any saint. V. It's kinda like seeing Jesus' face on a potato isn't it? Lol. I jest.

I have honest admiration for what Bjorn Shen and his team are doing at Artichoke and so far, none of the visits have been disappointing. This goes for tonight as well for what I consider to be a very good value to quantity and quality ratio of what they were serving for dinner. I have only some words and the trusty iPhone 4S to tell the story.
