Artichoke Basille's Pizza on 14th St

Just stopped in for a couple of slices at the brand new Artichoke Basille's Pizza on 14th between 1st and 2nd and was pleasantly surpised. Their plain was nice, with a light tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella and parmesan, but what was truly transcendent was their eponymous Artichoke pizza (actually artichoke and spinach). This is a bubbling white pie, rich and creamy with large pieces of spinach, chunks of artichoke and ample cheese. At only $3, a slice of this alone will be enough for a cheap meal on my next visit. Stuffed artichokes and cauliflower fritters also looked good, but I was too full to sample them myself. Does anyone know the story with this place? Googling it, it looks like it may be the offshoot of a Staten Island restaurant. In any event, it's nice to have a quality newcomer in what is already a great neighborhood for Pizza.
