    Artichoke Basille's is best known for its namesake artichoke slice, a creamy blend of sautéed artichoke hearts, garlic and spinach that's almost like a party dip on a pizza. It has fans among legions of late-night bar-hoppers who line up out the door for a quick meal before heading home. It is ideal drunk food. But the Sicilian slice here might be even better—especially for the more sober customer. Cooked in large rectangular pans, the crust is oily and crisp and almost fried in places. It's topped with three cheeses: fresh mozzarella, regular mozzarella and a scattering of good-quality Pecorino Romano. Add to that a post-bake handful of basil and a pour of olive oil, and you've got an enormously satisfying slice.
