Stuffed artichoke at Artichoke Basille’s Pizza, NYC

by mike

I have a complicated relationship with Artichoke Basille’s. You might assume that it would be one of my favorite places in the city. And I really want it to be. But alas, the one item on the menu I’m supposed to love, the artichoke pizza itself, fails to deliver. The crust is too thick, the sauce too creamy, and there aren’t more than a few artichoke leaves on it, much less any hint of hearts. However, their margherita and even their crab slices are very good. And they make a solid stuffed artichoke. As seen below, it comes in a flavorful chicken broth with plenty of breadcrumbs and parmesan. The leaves are quite tender and the flavor is baked on in.

7/10 on the chokescale.
