From the outside, the Coney Island Grimaldi’s seems like a tourist trap. Maybe it’s the big rotating sign that looks like it was borrowed from a car wash - or maybe it’s the picture of the New York City skyline above the entrance. Either way, it’s actually a good place to sit down and eat a crispy-crusted pizza. They don’t do slices, so be sure to come with at least one other person. Also, it’s cash-only.
