Artichoke Basille’s Pizza
Stepped into Artichoke Pizza after work with Tania babania. A short trip since we came down from 34th Street. After about a 7 minute walk from the 14th street we arrived at the Pizzeria. It was a bit crowded, but it was nothing close to some of the images I had seen online.
After some research, I knew I wanted the Artichoke slice. After eating four somewhat different slices, both Tania and I agree that the Artichoke slice was the best one. I kinda wish we purchased the crab slice (since the meatball was not available at this location). Nontheless, not being a fan of thin pizza, I would say that the Artichoke slice comes far from it. Filling, flavorful and refreshing are probably not enough to describe the taste of the Artichoke slice. I wasn’t too great a fan of the other three slices.
One primary complaint was the cold weather.The chill made it a bit uncomfortable to eat the pizza. I can’t complain that the location did not have enough adequate seating since half of the location was dedicated to customer seating (* only if you ordered from their menu). We were jammed into a little corner of the space and partially enjoyed our pizzas as our fingers and neck felt a cool draft of air sweeping by.
Otherwise, I would say that the pizza was really good. It’s probably more enjoyable in the summer with a nice old drink. I hope I remember to purchase a crab slice when I return next time (since I think it is probably second best to the Artichoke slice). Most importantly, I would say the prices are quite reasonable. Seeing as to how NYC pizza is around $4 a slice, I certainly did not mind paying $4.75 for a good slice.
