Artisans isn't cheap, but at this Midtown tour-de-force, you get what you pay for. And what you're paying for is high-quality food shipped in from all over the world, regardless of season, and prepared by Jacques Fox, an experienced chef and lover of all things decadent. At a time when many restaurants are moving toward more locally sourced ingredients, Artisans is sticking with the time-honored ways of the French aristocracy and bringing in the best ingredients, no matter how far they have to travel. Don't be confused by the name, though. Artisans refers to the chefs and cooks who carefully craft each dish, not the new, hipster definition in which "artisanal" implies local. In this case, it just means hand-made and really, really good.
