This is the main Grimaldi’s alternative. It’s only a few doors down from that more-famous pizzeria, and it gets pretty busy as well. That’s because Patsy Grimaldi opened it (after he sold Grimaldi’s). The pizza here is also in the chewy, charred Neapolitan style, and they use a coal-burning oven the same as their neighbor.

Five Leaves has been a Brooklyn hipster staple since 2008. We don't love it as much as other people seem to, but brunch is good, they do a solid burger, and the scene is always entertaining.
Tom’s is a Brooklyn classic for breakfast and lunch since 1936. You know what’s kept them in business for so long? Free stuff. That, and really good sausage.
La Isla Cuchifritos
We love La Isla Cuchifritos for the fact that a) it’s cheap and delicious, and b) it sort of feels like you’re grubbing in tropical Puerto Rico rather than not-so-tropical Brooklyn.

We feel sorry for anyone who doesn’t have a Paulie Gee’s in their ‘hood or in their city as an option for excellent Neapolitan pies.
Di Fara Pizza
Brooklyn's Di Fara is the best slice of pizza in New York, and worth every bit of the $5 and 30 minutes of waiting that it will cost you.
