We started the week with Seth by going to a pizza place called Grimaldi’s. Everything I know about Grimaldi’s, I’ve learned by reading wikipedia and the Grimaldi’s and Patsy’s menus. I do not know the full history, but I have pieced together that Grimaldi’s was started by nephew of the man that started Patsy’s Pizzeria. Patsy passed away and Grimaldi had a falling out with Patsy’s widow.
With the history out of the way, we were able to put the pizzeria’s to the taste test. When we went to Grimaldi’s we got one meat pizza and one plain pizza. To fairly compare the two joints, we got the same at Patsy’s.
I think the overall verdict was that we liked Grimaldi’s pizza better. They both follow the same recipe and are both cooked in coal ovens, so they were very similar, but Grimaldi’s was a bit crispier. I also liked the ambiance of Grimaldi’s better – Grimaldi’s had a more casual, fun atmosphere.
