Pizza Icon Grimaldi's Gives Manhattan Expansion Another Go

New, 4 comments

Six months after the world learned the sad news that the prospective Grimaldi's in FiDi was on the verge of eviction after a year of lying dormant, the Post learns the pizza icon has a new Manhattan plan. The Dumbo pizzeria/tourist trap has signed on to open a 24-hour branch in the Limelight Marketplace, the new mall in the old Limelight club space. The new restaurant is 1,200 square feet, will serve only wine and beer, and will have entrances on the street and within the mall.

But that's not all! The Post writes that the plans for 135 John Street are still on. Perhaps the owners settled their $62,000 tab with the landlords.
