The owners of Artichoke Basille’s Pizza opened two new Brooklyn locations last week. First to open was a Bushwick outpost, which took over the 18 Wyckoff Ave., at Troutman Street, space that was home to influential restaurant Northeast Kingdom for more than a decade. Wanting to honor the farm-to-table restaurant, Artichoke’s owners Sal Basille and Francis Garcia left the restaurant’s awning untouched.
Over the weekend, Basille and Garcia opened another new location in Bay Ridge at 9102 Fourth Ave., at 91st Street. It's their ninth location overall. Both locations will serve the pizzeria’s famed creamy, buttery, artichoke-topped slices, as well as crab pizza, burnt anchovy pies, and other specialties. Staying true to its identity as a place for pizza revelers, Artichoke Bushwick and Bay Ridge will be open until as late as 5:00 a.m.
