Advice about Grimaldi's

alysonlaurel | Oct 15, 2007 04:11 PM

I just moved here last month, and I'm having my first guests from home this week. My friend and her boyfriend are staying with her aunt in Manhattan, but they really want good New York pizza. I've read all over the place that Grimaldi's is one of the best, so my boyfriend and I went last weekend to see if it really is that good. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We felt like the pizza was a good value, and the atmosphere appropriate. We also thought it was just delicious, so I'd like to take my guests there. It seems like as good a place as any, and since I already know I like it, I know they won't be disappointed. I am hoping to take them there for lunch on Thursday. Does anyone know what the wait will be like at that time? I'm trying to plan the rest of the day, and I am having trouble knowing how much time to allow. On Saturday night, we arrived in the line at 5:30 and left the restaurant at around 7:30. Should I allow that much time, or will it be quicker during the week at lunchtime?

Thanks for the help!
