Scottsdale, AZ, August 26, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Grimaldi's Pizzeria, famous for their award-winning hand-tossed, coal-fired brick oven pizzas and calzones, fresh salads and delicious desserts has opened its newest location in Mount Pleasant, S.C. Located at 1244 Belk Drive in Mount Pleasant Towne Centre, the restaurant offers 4,000-square-feet of indoor dining and patio space, accommodating 150 guests.
With more than 100 years of pizza making tradition, guests are welcomed by Frank Sinatra crooning in the background, and the tantalizing aroma of pizza and calzones baked to perfection in the signature coal-burning oven. Guests can pair their pizza with selections from Grimaldi’s extensive Italian wine list.
“We are very excited to open Grimaldi's at the Mount Pleasant Towne Centre, our first South Carolina location," commented Joe Ciolli, Grimaldi’s president and CEO. "We believe that Grimaldi's brings to Mount Pleasant a unique dining experience that encourages guests to create memorable moments with family and friends.”
Grimaldi's Pizzeria currently has twenty-seven locations across the US, including Florida, Texas, Nevada, Arizona, and its flagship stores in New York City.
In the world of pizza, Grimaldi's is an institution that has garnered more awards than any other pizzeria in the country with more celebrity sightings than most 5-star restaurants. Using only the freshest ingredients, a "secret recipe" pizza sauce, handmade mozzarella cheese and dough, Grimaldi's serves traditional pizza (as it began in Naples, Italy) in an upscale yet casual, family-oriented pizzeria.
Designed and built by hand, the coal-fired oven at Grimaldi's Pizzeria delivers a unique flavor and consistency that is just not possible from wood or gas ovens. Weighing in at 25 tons and heated by 100 pounds of coal per day (cleanest burning fuel available and environmentally tested), the oven heats up to 1,200 degrees. The intense heat of the oven evenly bakes the pies to create Grimaldi's famous crispy and smoky thin crust that Zagat has voted best pizza year after year.
It has been said that the secret to true New York-style pizza is the water. Grimaldi's believes that too, going to great lengths to keep the integrity of the water used in the Brooklyn pizzeria by hiring a chemist to analyze and recreate the mineral content and exact composition of the water to ensure the dough tastes the same in South Carolina.
