Joe's Pizza On 'Law & Order'


Grimaldi's on Law & Order: Legendary Brooklyn Heights/DUMBO pizzeria Grimaldi's played an important role in a Briscoe-Curtis L&O episode called "Tabula Rasa," about a man who had fled New York and started his life over. This is one of our favorite posts, as it was the first entry of ours to be mentioned by major blog, thereby putting Slice on the radar.

The episode of Law & Order filmed at the now-closed location of Joe's Pizza, on the corner of Bleecker and Carmine streets, aired last night.

I was cat-sitting a friend's tabby and missed the show, but Tien took these photos of the TV for me. I'm not even quite sure how Joe's figured into the investigation, but here's a synopsis of the episode, from Jen:

"PUBLICITY-SEEKING RADIO PERSONALITY MAY BECOME VICTIM OF HIS OWN 'STUNT MUGGINGS' — JOE PISCOPO GUEST-STARS — A street thug-turned-radio personality (guest star Jose Zuniga) who had a penchant for attracting headlines through "publicity stunt muggings" is thought to be faking again when he's shot and almost killed. However, when other bodies start to stack up, Detectives Fontana (Dennis Farina) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) now must believe the danger is for real. Joe Piscopo (NBC's "Saturday Night Live") guest stars as a martial arts movie star. Sam Waterston, Elisabeth Rohm, S. Epatha Merkerson and Fred Dalton Thompson also star."
