Artichoke Basille's pizza options, by the slice or whole pie, include artichoke, crab, Margherita and Sicilian.
From the restaurant:
"Pizzaiolo Francis Garcia, who opened Artichoke with his cousin, Sal Basille, got their hands in the restaurant business by working at their mother's family Italian restaurant (Basille's) in Staten Island."
"It's a sad but pretty well-established fact that a good slice is hard to find. Maybe that's why the recent opening of Artichoke Basille's Pizza, an unassuming little storefront hard by Stuyvesant Town, has stirred up such febrile excitement on food blogs and in the persons of practically drooling, slightly dazed customers (the Underground Gourmet included)."
