Exotic America: When the moon hits your eye...
...like a big pizza pie...That would be Grimaldi's. It's apparently Brooklyn's best pizza...that we had in Hoboken. And apparently that you can also have in Florida, Arizona, Nevada and Texas. I'm not quite sure what's behind the theory of their geographic expansion, but who cares? All the better for the people of Florida, Arizona, Nevada and Texas becuase the pizza is really quite good.
We visited some friends with a new babe in Hoboken and pizza factored into the visit- even though garlic will likely be coming out of my pores for days (just in time for client meetings in NYC tomorrow), it has a great oven based crust, which at Grimaldi's (no relation to the Grimaldis of Monaco) is due to the fact that the oven is coal-fired and not wood-fired. Sounds carcinogenic I know, but they say it's cleaner than wood. And just like we liked in Naples, it's covered in lots of San Marzano tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella.
Something tells me we might be coming back to this Hoboken...here's how to find them:
133 Clinton St. (at 2nd)
Hoboken, NJ 07030
