I'm going to start on our NYC posts. We stopped over for just under a week on our way from South Africa, back to the boat in St. Lucia. Since food is such a big thing for us, and we stayed in Brooklyn while we were in New York, I thought I would start with "the best pizza" place in the area.
It was another one of those "we don't know where we are going or what we are doing today so let's just walk and see what happens" kind of days. We walked a LOT - under bridges, over bridges, around ships and down bicycle tracks.
The bridge, Brooklyn Bridge to be exact, took us to Grimaldi's. A friend of ours, Rehgert, recommended the "pizza place under the bridge". It is well worth a stop, especially if the block long queue is any indication.
Grimaldi's has a lot of character and the big burly Russian waiters are an interesting twist on the Italian theme. The pizza is fresh and tasty and the service is efficient. The only negative is that they don't serve alcohol which meant we couldn't have an ice cold beer after the long-ass walk. The pizza was still worth it though!
