It’s hard to believe that this place once housed that most amazing night club to ever exist on Earth, Limelight.

What was once a nearly broken down magnet for drugs, wild music, and intense partiers is now a fucking high end mall. But there’s a pizza shop on board, and a good one at that.

Grimaldi’s serves up some nice pies. We tried a half-sausage, half-regular pie. The regular side was way better, in my opinion. There’s really no need for toppings.

The dough is crisp, yet soft. It still folds up for biting and doesn’t sag too much when held in the air. Nice and simple, few ingredients – but QUALITY ingredients. This is how pizza is meant to be. The tomato sauce is fresh and house-made.

The antipasto is pretty nice too. Some slices of fresh mozz, topped with salami and then adorned with roasted red peppers, olives, olive oil and toasted Italian bread slices.

We devoured the burrata too quickly. I totally forgot to take a photo of it, but it was very nicely prepared. I highly recommend it.
