If you have a passion for pizza and are looking for the perfect downtown date, well then just take a quick walk over the Brooklyn Bridge to the famous Grimaldi's pizzeria. Please be aware that after one trip to Grimaldi's, you may never look at pizza the same.
Start your evening off in lower Manhattan and enjoy a beautiful 20 minute walk over the famous steel suspension Brooklyn Bridge. While traveling by foot from Manhattan to Brooklyn, you can stop to read the historical information plaques, take pictures or just enjoy the panoramic view of New York City.
This walk is guaranteed to build up your appetite for some of the world's best pizza as you make your way onto Grimaldi's located at 10 Old Fulton Street. You will know you are there when you see the long line spilling onto the sidewalk. Depending on the day or time of the year, you may have to wait quite sometime. Here is a little secret - the pizza is worth the wait.
Grimaldi's serves up fresh coal-fired brick oven pizza by the pie. Enjoy the fresh mozzarella, and choose from delicious toppings including pepperoni, italian sausage, ham, onions, red peppers, sun dried tomatoes, and more. The restaurant features red and white checked table clothes and has hosted some of the world's most famous people. Between the nostalgic ambience and the mouth-watering pizza pie, this will be a night you will never forget.
One of my favorite places in the city, but can't stand the lines! Here's a little tip - if it's a nice enough day, order your pie over the phone for pick-up, and you only have to wait the time it takes to make it, rather than the hour-plus on the line. Then, you can take it to the nearby park to enjoy. Works every time!
