I have heard of Grimaldi’s for the past 6 years, since I first met Reny
So we drove right through lower Manhattan and crossed over into Brooklyn

Olde Brooklyn Root Beer
The Food: Delicious. The crust was pretty much perfect. Ample topping and fresh mozzarella. Not enough sauce for me but don’t tell my husband, he is smitten with the place!
Drinks: The Olde Brooklyn rootbeer was good, lightly carbonated and loved by both Renys. I had a glass of house red ($5) and it was just as I expected a house red to be – it may have tasted even better because of the cold & rainy weather.
The Restrooms: Clean but no changing table. It was pretty crowded the day before Thanksgiving so there was a consistent line for the single restroom.
Service: Quick but not friendly. Classic New York.
Price: just under $30 for 1 large pizza (pepperoni & mushrooms), 1 glass of wine, 1 rootbeer & 1 gingerale
(+ $12 for validated parking – it was pouring and we couldn’t find street parking close enough to justify hauling the kids through the rain)
