The perpetually packed East Village slice shop also courts night owls at this Chelsea spinoff. The casual interior features tin ceilings and exposed ducts, plus one thing Artichoke devotees won't encounter at the 14th Street location: seating. Belly up to granite tables for an expanded menu of classic spinach-artichoke, crab and Margherita pies, as well as a "burnt anchovy" option (cooked until the fish "melts" into the mozzarella). Rounding out the offerings are appetizers like cauliflower fritters and pasta fagioli—plus beer and wine to keep the party going.

I was pretty hammered when I came here. I think I liked it? I woke up the next morning with the faint taste of artichoke pizza in my mouth and wasn't mad about it, so how could I be mad about it when I was eating it? Here's what I remember: I had a blast with the people I was with, our waiter was a babe, I filled my belly with pizza and I woke up happy. Thanks Artichoke!
When you need a slice the size of your head at 4 a.m. (and let's be honest, when don't you), this is the only place to even consider going. It's cash only, and you'll wait online, but honestly, it's 4 a.m.—where else do you have to be? (I think I forgot to mention that the pizza is really freakin' good.)
Love that there is a sit down option to this great late night spot (better than standing out in the cold!). The artichoke pizza may be thousands of calories (estimated) but it is worth it every once in a while!
