First Lady Michelle Obama visited Grimaldi's in Brooklyn yesterday with her two daughters. The New York Times's City Room blog quotes their server, Ralph Harajda, as saying, "They loved everything," he "I think they said it was better than Chicago pizza."
Of course, the Chicago Tribune had to confirm this, and there they quote Harajda as clarifying his statement: "No, what she said was, 'It's the best pizza, and I'm from Chicago.' She liked the pizza very, very much. They were pleased."
Of course, it's been reported here on Slice that the Obamas' favorite pizza can be found at Italian Fiesta Pizzeria in Chicago. But it seems that Italian Fiesta may be Mrs. O's fave and that the Pres just went along with it. The case could be made that President Obama's favorite pizza is at Pi Pizzeria in St. Louis.
