Grimaldi's outstanding coal oven pizza is worth waiting for which is why there is almost always a line of people waiting to get in! Thankfully, the line outside moves faster than you'd expect and pizzas arrive quickly once you're seated inside. Don't forget to take a post-dinner stroll down to the water to experience the outstanding view of Manhattan's skyline.

Grimaldi's pizza is prepared in a coal-fired brick oven, which gives the crust a nice smokey flavor. Their signature pie is the Margarita pizza, which has San Marzano tomatoes, freshly made mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, oregano and fresh basil. It cooks for just 3 minutes in a 900 degree oven before it's ready to devour.

While Grimaldi's Pizzeria is worth the journey on its own, it's a great reward after walking across the Brooklyn Bridge and a great choice near Pier 1 at Brooklyn Bridge Park.
