Grimaldi's Pizzeria in Brooklyn, NY
A New Yorker that I was chatting with on the flight over here was mentioning that this place under the Brooklyn Bridge was the place to go to for New York pizza. It was cash-only, no reservations, and interestingly, no pizza by the slice. And the original location usually had long lines (1 Front Street, 718-858-4300), so I intentionally waited until late Sunday night in the hopes that it would be better. Fortunately, I was able to walk right in.
The pizza was fine. It wasn't mindblowingly good like Mozza, but it was a decent thin-crust New York pizza complete with requisite shakers of garlic powder, dried oregano, and chili pepper flakes on each checkered tablecloth. The key was the fresh garlic: just enough to give it an edge, but not so much as to overwhelm it (nor fuel dragon breath). That Brooklyn Lager went down perfectly with it all too. Alas, I won't make any huge effort to come back here though. This was just one of those things that I had to try, and then leave it at that.
