After opening a sit-down spot in Chelsea, Artichoke has announced the opening date of its second slice shop, coming to 111 MacDougal Street, in the former Rino Ceronte space next to Minetta Tavern (and more to the point, next to Off the Wagon). The store is about the size of the first one, so expect lines out the front door when it opens next Wednesday. As with the Chelsea location, Noah Tepperberg and Jason Strauss of Marquee and Avenue will be partners. Also coming to MacDougal, last time we walked by: a Vietnamese sandwich spot at 114 MacDougal, across the street.
