NYC’s Blue Planet Grill creates new ‘weird pizza’ menu

By Pizza Today

Blue Planet GrillNEW YORK, May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — When it comes to creating fresh, exciting, delicious and unique pizza in New York City, no one is being more creative than the Financial District’s Blue Planet Grill.  The much loved restaurant’s new pizza menu is inspiring a great deal of excitement and there may be nothing quite like it anywhere else in Manhattan.

“We’re very proud of our new menu items,” said Jacob Krumgalz, owner of the Blue Planet Grill.  “Some may sound a bit weird at first, but our customers absolutely adore them.  Pizza can be fun, different and taste awesome all at the same time!”

Some of the new menu items, created by staff trained under award winning Pizza Chef Giulio Adriani, include: Baby Octopus & Seaweed Salad Pizza; Broiled Eel & Seaweed Salad Pizza; Smoked Salmon & Red Caviar Pizza; Chicken Liver Pate & Caramelized Onions Pizza and Pickled Herring & Young Potato Pizza.

Blue Planet Grill has steadily built a reputation as being one of the top casual dining spots in the Financial District powered by great food, friendly service and owner Krumgalz’s hands-on charm.  All these combine for a breath of fresh air in the Financial District, where these qualities can often be in short supply. The close proximity of the restaurant to the 9/11 Memorial has also brought many patrons through the door, looking for a less expensive dining option that the Blue Planet Grill is happy to provide while still guaranteeing quality and top service.

Gluten free menu items and other specialty choices are also available on request.

The new pizza menu is receiving an early enthusiastic response from diners across the board.

Emily P., from Boston recently said, “I come to NYC for work at least a few times a year and I couldn’t be happier to have discovered the Blue Planet Grill.  I recently got to try the Baby Octopus pizza and it’s absolutely divine. The servers are friendly and coming in to eat is one of the highlights of my business trip. I’m glad I don’t have to leave the Financial District to get a great meal, even on the weekends. Five stars, fully recommended.”

It’s clear that this combination of delicious food, creativity and attention to detail are sure to make Blue Planet Grill a “go to” fixture of the New York City culinary scene for well into the future. The exciting pizzas and dishes coming out of their kitchen are not something that should be missed!

The restaurant is located at 120 Greenwich Street, New York, NY 10006 and is open from Monday to Friday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
