Time Out says

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.

Love Artichoke - there's a "bouncer" at the door for this one, probably because it's close to so many popping bars and clubs that the hostess needs a little extra attention. Artichoke slices are amazing!


I've been here both drunk and sober, and let me tell you, neither time was I disappointed. My first time, after a night at the club, my 3 friends and I were pleasantly surprised to step outside and see Artichoke right next door. From there we proceeded up to the bouncer at the door, yes there is a bouncer, and luckily were "sober" enough to get in the door and snag a table. Once seated we ordered two pizzas and 4 beers. We were drunk already, but had to experience those big foam cups that Artichoke is known for, right?! Once the pizzas came we however, we knew we had made a HUGE mistake there. Please note, one slice is probably enough for a person, maybe even for two! These slices are gigantic. Once the pizza hit my mouth, after the burning sensation that came from having no patience, my taste buds were jumping for joy. This pizza really is everything that it's said to be. We proceeded to drink our beers and enjoy the pizza. Then, we got the rest to go. Heated up this pizza is just as good, but who am I kidding, cold pizza is best for the hangover. So if you are still inclined to order that full pie, don't worry, takeaway boxes are available for a special treat to your taste buds the next day (or next few days).

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!
