The Artisan’s Palate

Sunday’s are the best days for BRUNCH! We are still drooling over our last delicious brunch visit at The Artisan’s Palate. Who wants to go back with us ?!

Chef Christa Csoka opened Artisan’s Palate last fall in NoDa. Her café offers a unique menu of coffees, craft cocktails, wine, and share plates in a neighborly, relaxed atmosphere with a focus on art and those who create it.

Need recommendations on what to order?

We highly recommend:

$5 Mimosas made with a variety of freshly squeezed juices

Warm Marinated Olives with Lemon Zest and Garlic. These olives  paired perfectly with our mimosas.

Bacon wrapped dates: This dish is bacon wrapped around Rosemary & Honey Dates, Marcona Almond and Goat Cheese. Yum! Every bite is the perfect mix of sweet and salty

Shrimp and Milanese Grits with andouille sausage: the smell of this dish was amazing and the taste was even better! We literally licked this bowl clean!

Charleston style grits are the best in my opinion and the chef prepares them perfectly. 

Spice Wine Poached pear salad: Radicchio, Arugula and Butter Lettuce topped Radishes, Pistachios, Cranberries and Pear Vinaigrette. We added 1/2 Gorgonzola and 1/2 Goat Cheese to our salad. The pears and pear vinaigrette dressing added a sweetness and slight tang to the salad.

This dish was ALMOST too beautiful to eat. We devoured it! 

️We finished with a delicious cup of Cafe Au Lait and a warm sticky bun from Pastry Chef Christine Alter then enjoyed the amazing art by Holly Spruck.

One of the coolest and most unique offerings is the on-site art gallery. Each month a different artist is chosen to display their artwork in the gallery. Artwork and prints are also available for sale.

Sunday brunch menu offered from 10:30 am – 2:30 pm
