New York City nightlife and Artichoke Basille's were made to go together. The pizza joint is known for fantastically large slices of creamy, red sauce-free artichoke-spinach pizza that are available well past midnight. Since opening its original East Village location in 2008, Artichoke has expanded across the city and become something of an NYC staple -- largely due to a grateful throng of late-night diners. In addition to the white sauce-drenched signature (a personal favorite of Keith Richards), Artichoke serves margherita, vodka, and Sicilian slices, all of which are equally indulgent and oversized. And if greasy but gourmet pizza at 3am isn’t enough to satisfy your fix, the cheese-topped artichoke, stuffed with breadcrumbs, parsley, and pignoli nuts, should do it.
