first off, to check out the history, you HAVE to go to www.grimaldis.com
secondly, it was out of this world, and we went to the one in douglaston, NOT brooklyn.
i love me some grimaldi's pizza.
the website says this:
"In the world of pizza, Grimaldi’s is an institution. Grimaldi’s history of coal-fired brick oven pizza cooking can be traced to the first pizzeria in America back in 1905. Coal-fired brick oven cooking gives pizza a unique smokey flavor and a crisp crust that is just not possible with gas, convection, or wood ovens.
Knowing coal-fired brick oven cooking is a dying art, we, at Grimaldi’s, want to ensure that future generations will be able to experience this distinctive and truly authentic pizza. It is our passion for pizza that made us a “must have” for pizza lovers and celebrities alike, including Frank Sinatra and former NYC Mayor Guiliani."
that last little one with the pepperoni on it is obviously mine!
We love you and can't wait to be there again soon!
