Mayor Pete Buttigieg Talks Politics, Pizza in NYC Tour With the Post
“New York just as a creation is one of the most remarkable things that humankind has ever produced … I just marvel at it,” said Buttigieg, in town for a media and fundraising blitz culminating with a Thursday night appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
Across the bridge in Dumbo, Buttigieg enjoyed another triumph of human ingenuity: A New York slice at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria.
“Do you have my fork?” Buttigieg jokingly asked an aide with a laugh and a shake of his head as he grabbed a slice from a margherita pie.
Dodging a hurdle that tripped up de Blasio — who in 2014 committed the cardinal New York sin of eating his pizza with cutlery just days after being sworn into his first term — Buttigieg sprinkled the slice with red pepper flakes then ate it by hand.
