Grimaldi's Pizzeria offeres New York-style pies.

Frites

Frites are on the menu at Paris in Town Le Bistro.

Two new restaurants at Downtown at the Gardens have brought pizza pizzazz and French flair to the popular shopping center.

Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, known for its award-winning hand-tossed, coal-fired, brick-oven pizzas, offers its diners 100 years of pizza-making tradition – with the sounds of Frank Sinatra crooning in the background. Paris in Town Le Bistro brings a Parisian dining experience to a 2,600-square-foot space designed to feel like a comfortable French bistro.

In an effort to serve a true New York-style pizza, Grimaldi’s hired a chemist to analyze and recreate the mineral content and exact composition of the water to ensure the dough tastes like it’s from Brooklyn. The restaurant’s custom brick oven weighs 25 tons and is heated by 100 pounds of coal per day.

With indoor and outdoor seating for up to 150 people, Le Bistro features red-leather banquets, rich wood and pendant-globe lighting. There’s also a zinc-topped bar – traditional in France – for those seeking a glass of wine from the restaurant’s comprehensive, French-influenced list.

“Guests at Le Bistro will feel like they’re transported to a traditional 1920s-style bistro where they can relax, unwind from the day’s stresses, see people they know and simply enjoy a good meal of bouillabaisse or coq au vin, for example,” co-owner and executive chef Beni Himmich said.
