Behold, the new Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, now serving up pies at the Shoppes at the Palazzo. One of the most upscale of the pizza chain’s 26 locations nationwide carries the largest wine and liquor menu of any of the five area shops.
Inside, clever wine bottles serve as lighting fixtures and chandeliers, lighting the red-and-white checkered tablecloths. Above the 25-ton brick oven laid brick by brick, a subway stop sign just for the Palazzo. That massive oven uses 100 pounds of coal a day to get the crusts just right. Chemists even checked the water and made it the same as the H2O at the original under the Brooklyn Bridge in New York.
Sit in the main dining room with views of Fashion Show mall or head to the indoor patio for some people watching of the diners at Table 10.
Bonus: this one stays open until 2 a.m. to satisfy late-night munchies.
