Iconic NYC Pies and Slices Opens In Entertainment Hotspot, Desert Ridge Marketplace
Phoenix, AZ (RestaurantNews.com) The popular New York-style pizza concept Artichoke Basille’s Pizza is set to open its doors in the Phoenix Desert Ridge Marketplace on November 19th, bringing its Arizona state presence to a total of three locations. Located at 21001 North Tatum Blvd, Suite 40-1365 and situated next to Copper Blues Live comedy and music venue, the renowned pizza establishment will be serving up its famed massive pies and slices to guests at the premier marketplace for entertainment, retail, and dining in Phoenix.
The restaurant will occupy 3,150 sq ft and will combine the vibe of the modern open air marketplace with Artichoke Basille’s iconic New York ambiance and decor. The classic exposed brick walls are matched with trendy Phoenix architecture including an open ceiling, coveted red tufted booths, TVs throughout, and two garage doors situated above the huge rectangle indoor/outdoor bar leading to the patio. The 1,000 sq ft patio, which wraps around the building, will be outfitted with astroturf, outdoor TVs, and a misting system to keep guests cool and comfortable. The menu at the Artichoke Desert Ridge location will offer Artichoke’s iconic menu of traditional pies including Margherita, Pepperoni, and Meatball, alongside signature options such as the namesake Artichoke Pie and creative Crab Pie. Appetizers, sandwiches, pasta, salads, and desserts will also grace the menu in addition to a full bar offering a range of wines, cocktails, and 12-16 beers on tap.
The Arizona franchisees have been responsible for Artichoke’s Arizona statewide expansion, bringing the famed pies to the Grand Canyon state with additional locations in Tempe (1120 Baseline Rd.) and Phoenix (6031 N 16th St). “We’re beyond excited to finally be opening at the lively Desert Ridge Marketplace, which is home to a diverse assortment of attractions and nightlife that make it a hotspot in the area and the perfect location for the Artichoke concept,” said Arizona Franchisee Ron Marino. “We can’t wait to open our doors and begin serving guests a classic taste of Artichoke Basille’s Pizza.”
Founded by fourth-generation pizzaiolos, Artichoke Basille’s Pizza established their first location in New York City’s East Village in 2008, and the city’s late-night dining scene (and pizza scene in general) hasn’t been the same since. Revelers and pizza lovers lined up at all hours for a taste of their now-legendary Artichoke Pizza, and since then, more than a dozen additional locations have opened across the country.
Artichoke Basille’s Pizza has been featured on The Tonight Show, Rachael Ray, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Chew with Mario Batali, and write-ups in The New York Times, The New York Post, New York Magazine, and US Magazine. The massive slices and whole pies have also garnered praise from celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lopez, Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, Keith Richards, Rachael Ray, Jay Leno, among other celebrities who are often spotted at Artichoke locations across the country.
