Grimaldi's Pizza... Brooklyn, NY

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.We had a large cheese, half pepperoni, and it was gone in less than 4 minutes. Have you ever seen the show on Food Network called "Best Thing I ever Ate?" well this pizza joint was featured on it! You can't make reservations and everyone waits in line, even if you called ahead for a to go. The line wraps down the sidewalk and you are called inside by the nicest, upbeat, man in the place. You can walk to the back and watch the pizza being made. The cheese is fresh and stacked feet tall, all the ingredients are overflowing their bowls and look better than amazing. Next time you're in NYC, venture over to Brooklyn. It's a very safe part of town just over the bridge. You can order you pizza to go, sit on the river bank, and take in all the beauty of NYC.


  1. Well said Molly! This was amazing & there's such a beautiful view I didn't mind the line!

  2. Foods like soft drinks, cordials, biscuits, cakes and lollies have high sugar content. Although sugar has not been directly linked to developing heart disease or diabetes, there is evidence that a high sugar intake may contribute to the development of overweight and obesity.
