The first place I took the Germans to when they got to the good ol’ USA was to Grimaldi’s for some good ol’ New York City pizza that I haven’t had since September. One of the first things they asked: “Is it as good as Pizza Hut?” Oh, slay me. Love these Europeans.
Of course after their 10 hour plane ride they wanted to shower and I was a Starvin Marvin so I made them go as fast as they could and I was pleasantly surprised how quickly they were ready. We made it to Grimaldi’s by nine and got a table right away. Fantastic!
They loved everything. The decor, the old music, the service and of course, the PIZZA!
I also made them try Brooklyn Lager:
When in Rome…
The owner of Grimaldi’s came over and talked to us at one point and the boys loved that too. He asked what a good girl like me was doing with those crazy boys (good question) and he asked them where they were from and talked about Germany and such and asked how they liked their pizza. The boys were really impressed because they said in Germany nobody talks to you and nobody is friendly at restaurants because nobody cares. So this was good.
We got two large pies. One pepperoni/sausage and the other ham and mushroom. Nice work, boys.
Man, I just love Grimaldi’s.
Afterward I walked them down to the landing on Fulton St, of course, so they could see Manhattan in its glory.
I think this picture is kind of awesome despite their blurry faces:
These guys are kind of awesome and super fun so I’m pretty excited to show them around the rest of the weekend. I even have the day off of work today! Have a great weekend and a very happy Easter! I get to see some of my extended family on Easter Sunday and go to church with them too so I’m pretty excited about that. I’m just excited for everything. :)
