We let curiosity get the better of us last night and ordered a pie from Grimaldi's, newly opened next to Katz's deli near the Woodbridge-New Haven line.
Wooster Street has nothing to worry about.
I've never been to the famed original Grimaldi's in Brooklyn, but I've heard it has a following like Pepe's or Sally's. I've also heard that its chain locations are pale imitators.
Armed with this knowledge, we ordered a large mushroom, onion and bacon pie.
Meh. It was OK but we're not tempted to try it again.
The crust was very crispy but kind of bland. I am usually a big crust-eater, but I gave some of my crust to the dog (who's not picky). They use fresh mushrooms and excellent bacon. They also use store-made fresh mozzarella, which is not greasy but also a bit on the bland side. They put a little fresh basil on the pie, a nice touch. There was very little sauce, and again little flavor from it.
The best thing we got was a house salad, which was very nice - fresh and bright with roasted peppers and a variety of olives.
The price was comparable with Wooster Street.
We got takeout, but we'd describe the interior as looking like every suburban pizza place you ever saw. Maybe it will do well with the Woodbridge/Bethany crowd or people peeling off the Parkway for grub.
