First Lady Michelle Obama and the First Kids downed three pies at DUMBO’s legendary Grimaldi’s Pizzeria on March 24 — and said it was better than Chicago-style pizza!

Even the family’s jaded waiter was impressed.

“It was great! It is an honor,” said Rafal Harajda, who served the fitness-obsessed Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha one pie with pepperoni and sausage, one classic Margherita, and one with mushrooms, peppers and onions.

The family showed up at around 1 pm with a full complement of security that kept Old Fulton Street in a lockdown for two hours. Restaurant customers kept their distance — more of out respect than fear, Harajda said.

The Secret Service did not, however, keep its distance. Those who wanted to enter the restaurant were given “the wand” and padded down, while other guards escorted MObama and the kids.

The waiter also reported (naturally) that the First Family was impressed by the quality of the Grimaldi’s pies, which do remain among the best in the city.

“They told me they really liked it,” Harajda said. “They were very very nice people, very down to earth.”

Later, the Obamas toured the newly opened portion of Brooklyn Bridge Park.
