Often overlooked as the part of Brooklyn where you just finished walking the Brooklyn Bridge, DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) deserves its own day of exploration. Famous for being a waterfront neighborhood, you can relax at the Brooklyn Bridge Park for the best views of the Manhattan skyline, and then explore some of the best restaurants (and pizza!) and bars in the city. Not to mention, it is down under the Manhattan Bridge, so you get a beautiful view of the bridge, too.
Juliana's heralds the return of Patsy Grimaldi, NYC’s most celebrated pizza proprietor, to 19 Old Fulton Street, the original location under the Brooklyn Bridge where he and his late wife, Carol, founded legendary Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. Unbeknownst to many, Pat and Carol sold Grimaldi’s and retired almost two decades ago. In 2012, they “unretired” to partner with a close friend to establish Juliana’s, proudly preparing and serving pies the way Patsy has for generations: deliciously thin crusts hosting only the finest housemade, locally and internationally-sourced toppings, expertly turned inside the original hand-built coal-fired oven—the first commissioned in New York in over fifty years.
