East Village: We should have seen this coming given the crazed reception the East Village has given to the oft-packed Artichoke:
"Artichoke Basille's Pizza wants a bigger slice of the Manhattan pie. The little spot on East 14th Street that made a splash when it opened last spring is scouring for at least five more new locations.That's not at all overly aggressive.
Artichoke has tapped Zelnik & Co. Realty's Jason Turner to spearhead the search. Artichoke co-owner Francis Garcia said his first priority is the West or East Village."
