Pies to stay put.

Fear not, pizza fiends. Grimaldi's owner Frank Ciolli responded to news yesterday that the famed pizzeria would be evicted due to unpaid back rent and taxes with the promise that he wasn't going anywhere.

The New York Post is reporting that Ciolli says he has the money and has no plans to leave the Old Fulton Street space under the Brooklyn Bridge that attracts queues of tourists and locals daily. We'll find out more today when the case goes before a Brooklyn Supreme Court judge.
