Scottsdale, AZ, United States, 2011/11/11 - Grimaldi’s is an institution that has garnered more awards than any other pizzeria in the country. Using fresh ingredients, Grimaldi’s serves traditional pizza (as it began in Naples, Italy) in an upscale yet casual, family oriented pizzeria.
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, famously known for their award-winning hand-tossed, coal-fired brick oven pizzas and calzones, fresh salads and delicious desserts is announcing its newest location, at 3200 Las Vegas Blvd. South in Fashion Show. This will be the first of its Nevada locations to be on the Las Vegas Strip. With Frank Sinatra crooning in the background, Grimaldi’s has over 100-years of pizza making traditions and the tantalizing aroma of pizza and calzones baked to perfection in the signature coal burning oven.
This newest Grimaldi’s is located right in the heart of Fashion Show on the first level in front of the runway. With seating capacity of 102 – including cozy mall seating – the restaurant will be open daily for lunch and dinner from 11:00am – 9:00pm. Always a family favorite, Grimaldi’s will continue to provide floured pizza dough to children for pre-meal fun!
Designed and built by hand, the coal-fired oven at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria delivers a unique flavor and consistency that is just not possible from wood or gas ovens. Weighing in at 25 tons and heated by 100 pounds of coal per day (cleanest burning fuel available and environmentally tested), the oven heats up to 1,200 degrees. The intense heat of the oven evenly bakes the pies to create Grimaldi’s famous crispy and smoky thin crust that Zagat has voted best pizza year after year.
It has been said that the secret to true New York-style pizza is the water. Grimaldi’s believes that too, going to great lengths to keep the integrity of the water used in the Brooklyn pizzeria by hiring a chemist to analyze and recreate the mineral content and exact composition of the water to ensure the dough tastes the same in Nevada.
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria (grimaldispizzeria.com) owns and operates 21 locations in Arizona, Texas, New York and Florida while also operating 4 stores in Nevada. Grimaldi’s has announced that they are already planning ten additional locations across the United States for 2012.
Grimaldi’s offers guests a selection of beers as well as an extensive list of wines (by the glass and bottle) to complement their freshly prepared salads, hand tossed pizzas and calzones and famous desserts.
