Beneath a bridge in Queens in a mall plaza sits Grimaldi’s pizza, home of one of the more delectable pizzas in New York. Famed for its coal fired brick oven style pizza, the Grimaldi pizza has that slightly burnt yet intriguing taste in the crust. A little history from Grimaldi’s…

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.


The pizza was pretty good
