We walked past Artisan quite a lot on our strolls around Den Bosch and it always looked warm and inviting. So one day, when the Markt was absolutely heaving with people; we darted down Verwersstraat and bagged a table for lunch.
We got in quite early, when we were only two of four diners in the place but when we left, it was, (as were most places), full. The decor is contemporary and pleasant, with (hurrah), very comfortable chairs.
At lunch, there were a la carte choices but we decided on the two-course “surprise-menu”. To begin, there was a timbale comprising of fish, (salmon?), and greenery, with a small salad of yellow pepper strips and a delicious sauce. It was first rate. This was followed by some tasty, moist, rolled breast-meat, (chicken?), set on top of mashed potato and covered in a creamy truffle sauce. It was really very good but the accompanying steamed veg were a little bland and underwhelming.
We could have washed this down with one of the wine-samplers - the adjacent table had the 3-glass selection of white, rose and red. The wines were described in great detail by the charming waitress but the descriptions were lost on us - not speaking much Dutch. Instead we chose an Australian Chardonnay from the list, which was very good and well priced.
We really enjoyed Artisan and can recommend it, if you are looking for a light(ish) lunch, with a great selection of wines by the glass.
