There’s nothing New York’s professional eaters love to do more than deliberate on our city’s best pizza (besides fight about the city’s best bagels). Continuing the tradition, a frustrated, ever-opinionated Ben Leventhal says that as far as Artichoke pizza goes, he is officially, totally over it. Comparing the joint to the bad side of Shake Shack, he frowns, ” … at Artichoke the only post-game emotion is the empty feeling that you have gotten a little fatter for no good reason.” Over at Slice, they beg to differ. And won’t be bullied. And then grandma gets involved. [Slice/Serious Eats]
