Just Want Another Slice of Artichoke Pizza

The artichoke is a variety of a species of thistle cultivated as a food. The edible matter is buds that form within the flower heads before the flowers come into bloom. The Artichoke Basille’s artichoke pizza is soft, tasty, rich and creamy. There is always a crowd and they are definitely there for a very good reason. The slices are huge and intimidating at first but once we are finished we are always begging for more.

Pizzaiolos, cousins and best friends, Francis Garcia and Sal Basille opened Artichoke Basille’s® on 14th St. in 2008. Having gotten their hands into the business early working at their family’s restaurant, Basille’s in Staten Island, the boys and their pizza shop have made more than a name for themselves in Manhattan.

In 2010, the cousins teamed up with New York nightlife impresarios Noah Tepperberg and Jason Strauss to expand Artichoke Basille’s® Pizza. Their second Artichoke location opened in September of 2010 on 10th Ave at 17th Street in Chelsea featuring sit-down dining and expanded menu items. In November of the same year, the new partnership opened the third Artichoke Basille’s®. Similar in size to the original Artichoke location, this slice shop serves up the legendary slices in what was once the heart of American Bohemia, Greenwich Village on MacDougal Street.
