Artichoke May Become the Next Shake Shack

Speaking of chains: It seems that Artichoke's recent expansion to Tenth Avenue and to MacDougal Street is but the tip of a very large ice pick.

In an interview with Grub Street, Francis Garcia, one of the pizzeria's owners, says that Pizza Hut "had better worry" because in addition to scouting locations in Williamsburg, Astoria, and uptown, the team is planning to expand to Las Vegas, Philadelphia, and Boston. All of which probably won't do anything to reduce the lines at the original 14th Street location.
