The Brooklyn Paper reports that Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has solved two problems by moving to 1 Front Street – a contentious relationship with its landlord and the cycle of truly lousy tenants at the historic cast iron building:
Brooklyn Paper: “We’re moving into a bigger, nicer, and cleaner facility,” said Gina Peluso, daughter of owner Frank Ciolli. “It will be nice to have a little more room.”
Grimaldi’s will serve its final pie at its current location on Nov. 28, then open one day later open in 1 Front St. — a former bank turned bar and lounge. The eatery will take over the first floor, while the second floor will remain a nightclub.
