After attending a financial planning engagement last night, we decided to try a restaurant that a friend of mine suggested named Artin’s Grill in Plano at the Shops at Legacy. The place was practically empty when we arrived, which is not usually a good sign considering the restaurants across the way were booming, but the service was very attentive. I'm also glad that we chose to sit outside because their patio has a fantastic view of the colorful watershow from the nearby fountain. It was already a little late and Montana had to wake up early for a big meeting the next morning, so we opted to have a fairly short and un-varietal meal. We chose the Short Ribs to split as our main course because that was what my friend had recommended, and they were incredible! The only time I used my knife during the night was to butter my bread because you certainly didn’t need it for these succulent short ribs. Absolutely perfectly fork tender with the right amount of blackened crust from the sear on the outside. On the other hand, I would have loved more of the cabernet pan sauce to mop up with my bread, and I wasn’t really a big fan of the Mac N Cheese that came with it because it reminded me more of a stroganoff.  I didn’t really care though because those short ribs had me at Chow! In general, I would return to Artin’s Grill just for those Short Ribs, but it’s so hard to go back anytime soon when you have a plethora of great places surrounding it!
