HELL's KITCHEN — A man who stopped in to Artichoke Pizza Friday night scored a late-night date, but lost his $35,000 Rolex, police said.

The 23-year-old man brought the woman, who he told police was 5-foot-2-inches tall and had straight, blonde hair, back to his apartment on West 37th Street after meeting her at the pizzeria at around 11:45 p.m., according to authorities.

When he woke up at 4:45 a.m. Saturday morning, both she and his $35,000 Rolex Daytona were gone, NYPD said.

Police could not say which Artichoke location the pair met at.

No arrests have been made, police said.
