Juliana's Pizza19 Old Fulton St. Brooklyn, NY 11201
Welcome to Juliana’s, a New York-style pizzeria. Juliana’s heralds the return of Patsy & Carol Grimaldi—not only to the NYC restaurant scene, but to the original location under the Brooklyn Bridge where they founded Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. Unbeknownst to many, Pat & Carol ended their association with Grimaldi’s more than a decade ago when they sold the business (along with the name) to a customer. Even though they were no longer involved in the restaurant, they never lost their passion for serving (and eating) truly great pizza. And so, after many requests from friends and former customers—and a desire to re-live a “dream come true”—they have partnered with a long-time collaborator to establish Juliana’s, a neighborhood pizzeria, preparing and serving pies the way Patsy has for generations. Named in honor of Pat’s mother, Maria ‘Juliana’ Lancieri, Juliana’s will occupy 19 Old Fulton Street, in the Fulton Ferry Historic District, in the building that was once home to Grimaldi’s.
Who is ‘Juliana’?
Juliana’s is affectionately named in honor of Patsy’s mother, Maria ‘Juliana’ Lancieri Grimaldi. Juliana was born in Melfi, Italy, the youngest child of Domenico and Amalia Lancieri. She had three older brothers: Luigi, Franco and Pasquale. In the early 1900s, the family emigrated to the U.S. and settled in New York City. In 1925, Pasquale (by then known as ‘Patsy’) and his wife, Carmella, opened a pastry shop on First Avenue in Manhattan. In 1933, they converted the bakery to a pizzeria and restaurant, which is known today as the famous Patsy’s Pizzeria, still in its original East Harlem location.

Thanks @grubstreet - we are humbled and honored to be chosen by you as "the absolute best" egg cream in NYC! And thanks to @seltzerboys and @foxsubet for supplying the top quality local ingredients that make our egg creams so yum!! From the article (by Mary Jane Weedman): "Juliana’s chocolate egg cream — which is served in a pint glass with a long milkshake spoon — is different than nearly every other offering in the city. A chocolaty richness thanks to U-bet is cut by a frothy head buoyed by Brooklyn Seltzer Boys seltzer, which here has gentle but long-lasting bubbles. What makes it truly different is that said frothy head has a root-beer-float-style reaction — that is, intense; it looks like a third-grade science experiment. And that froth lasts through even leisurely consumption (often, the froth on other, lesser egg creams will dissipate before you’ve even had a chance to unwrap your straw), meaning you can alternate bites of pizza with sips of egg cream throughout an entire pie." • • • #zagatnyc #brooklyneats #ediblebrooklyn #yelpbrooklyn #brooklynbound #brooklyneats #grubstreet #eggcream #brooklynbridgepark #brooklynbridge #eaterny #libations #nycdining
