Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, which has been a coal-fired, brick-oven classic for more than 100 years, is finally set to open a location in Manhattan.
The chain exists in Arizona, Florida, Nevada, Texas and throughout the New York and New Jersey markets, but it’s never hit the most populated borough of New York City until now. According to the Eater NY blog, the first location was originally scheduled to open in the spring of 2010 in the Limelight Marketplace area.
However, various delays pushed it back until Jan. 24, which remains the official open date. Free pizza samples will be handed out to celebrate the opening.
The Manhattan location will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will include a takeout window.
