Of course you’ve heard about Grimaldi’s pizza. How could you not? A pizza reputed to be NYC’s finest if not for the longest of lines. It’s typical to wait more than an hour especially on weekends and for big groups. Take note of this during hot summer days or in the blistering cold because one has to stand in line outside during this wait. Showing up early in the evening on a weekday might be a better idea if you don’t have the patience to wait. For what it’s worth the pizza really is good, but one can find close seconds at Patsy’s at University place in Manhattan or a less touristy contender at Lucali’s in Carroll Gardens.
