Hi, this is my first post on CH but have used the boards steadily in the weeks before our trip to NYC.
I really wanted to take my husband to a great pizza place. From the comments on CH, narrowed it down to John's and Grimaldi's and eventually settled on Grimaldi's. Won't go into it, as I know this is the Manhattan Board. But just wanted to say that what should have been a great trip to Grimaldi's was ruined by the pizza we had a Joe's and at Bleeker Street Pizza, both in the West Village. Only had plain cheese/tomato at both, but they were fabulous! Pizza we had a Grimaldi's was good, and I'm glad we went, but we were spoiled by what we had in the West Village. So much for best laid plans!!!
Also, thanks to those on this board who recommended Cafe Frida - had some great food and drink there.
