Not exactly the giant softball-size variety known for numbing your palate to the subtleties of a fine wine. These grilled baby artichokes, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, are much smaller and perfect with a zesty, citrusy sauvignon blanc. With this dish you get plenty of those sweet, tender hearts wrapped in a few more mature leaves for dipping. The choke and stalk are edible and so delicious when they get a little caramelization on them from the grill. Dip in the proffered lemon aoli and marvel at this healthy, natural fast food. $12 for four halves, 1031 S. Rampart Blvd., 940-6672.
