Slice vs. Vice II: Grimaldi's Ain't That Old

Dear Slice

On Wednesday, we had to bring out the truth hammer and give Vice magazine a knock to the skull with it for some wack stuff they'd written in their NYC pizza guide.

Today, friend of Slice Scott "Pizza Tour" Wiener writes with this follow up:

They say Grimaldi's has been one of the best for 1,000,000 years? I understand hyperbole, but it's a common misconception that the spot is one of the oldest in the city. It opened in 1990. Nothing to get all worked up about, but the year puts things into perspective. I was watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in 1990. Papa John's was already three years old. My point is, as good as Grimaldi's is, most people don't realize it opened as recently as it did.
