The 21 Best Pizza Restaurants in Brooklyn
You can’t talk about Brooklyn pizza without mentioning the Grimaldi’s/Juliana’s rivalry. The story goes something like this: Patsy Grimaldi, heir to the now-sold East Harlem-based pizza chain Patsy’s, once owned the DUMBO pizzeria Grimaldi’s, which specialized in coal-oven Neapolitan style pies that have historically drawn long lines. But in 1998 he sold the pizzeria and later Grimaldi’s was eventually forced out of his original space. In 2012 Pat moved back into that original Grimaldi’s space to open Juliana's (named after his mother), coming out of retirement to one-up his now enemy, Grimaldi’s, which currently operates next door. Despite the drama and confusing history, Juliana’s is definitely worth a visit and in our opinion, makes a far superior pie.
