Brookfield, Wis. – Known for its award-winning, coal-fired, brick oven pizza, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria today announced it will open its first Wisconsin location at The Corners of Brookfield on Friday, November 10. The restaurant will offer more than 4,700 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor space, including outdoor seating for 45 and a main dining room accommodating 102 patrons.

Boasting authentic New York-style menu offerings, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria specializes in handcrafted pizzas, calzones and antipasto, as well as a variety of salads and New York-style cheesecakes and desserts made in-house daily. Grimaldi’s also features a full bar serving specialty cocktails, craft beers and a robust wine list, including its own signature Mille Gradi red blend, produced by Rocca delle Macìe winery in Tuscany, Italy.

Showcasing family-friendly, comfortable rustic décor, the restaurant’s design will feature Grimaldi’s signature red and white gingham tablecloths, handcrafted hanging wine bottle lights, and iconic photographs of Brooklyn, NY, reminiscent of the city where the renowned eatery originated.

The restaurant’s newest location will also include an open concept kitchen, which demonstrates the art of pizza making and allows guests to watch pizza-tossing first-hand. Additionally, the restaurant will feature Grimaldi’s famous 25-ton coal-burning oven, which is heated by 100 pounds of coal per day at a temperature of up to 1,200 degrees, delivering a unique, smoky-flavored thin crust.

“We are thrilled to be expanding to our 16th state and bringing our distinctive and truly authentic pizza to Wisconsin,” said Chief Executive Officer of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, Joey Ciolli. “The Corners of Brookfield is an ideal location for our first Wisconsin restaurant and we can’t wait to serve our high-quality, award-winning pizza to our new guests next month.”

Awarded the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences’ Five Star Diamond Award, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria now has 50 locations across 16 states on the East Coast, and in the South, Midwest and Southwest.

About Grimaldi’s Pizzeria:
In the world of pizza, Grimaldi’s is an institution that has earned 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. 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.

Grimaldi’s Pizzeria at The Corners of Brookfield is located at 20119 Lord Street, Brookfield, WI 53045 and will be open Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
