Francis Garcia and Sal Basille opened Artichoke
Basille's on 14th Street in 2008 and immediately scored glowing
reviews in the New York Times, New York Post, and
New York Magazine. David Chang, Keith Richards, Leonardo
DiCaprio, Drew Barrymore, and Martin Scorsese are all fans. They've
expanded Artichoke to six locations (in New York City and Berkeley,
California), launched a frozen pizza line, and are hosts of the
Cooking Channel's Pizza Masters.
