THE WILD ARTICHOKE

4973-A Yorba Ranch Road Yorba Linda, CA 92886 | Yorba Linda | 714-777-9646

Location Description:

While the restaurant's motto "Food prepared from the heart, with the soul in mind" is cumbersome (it's like a New Age math problem), all of James D'Aquila's culinary creations are fabulous, simply fabulous. Stick to the artichokes-either the simple Wild Artichoke salad tossed with various vegetables and sprinkled with bitter balsamic vinaigrette, or Artichoke Napoleon, a puff pastry in which sautéed artichokes assume the luxuriousness of truffles.
