Learning to cook … one kid at a time

A Review: Grimaldi’s Pizza (Brooklyn) November 24, 2011

Thin crust

Crispy crispy crispy

It comes from a coal-burning oven

An oven that can no longer be built

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

 

   

Tossing the dough … two thumbs up … Fiona watching the pizza being made

 

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)
