What’s the vibe?

Emmy Squared is a fairly simple neighbourhood spot with locations in Williamsburg and East Village, which just opened recently. In the Brooklyn spot, there’s a long wooden bar, some plain wooden tables a couple of mirrors and that’s about it, but it’s still buzzing every single night with the hoards of people who come down for what is definitely one of the best pizzas in NYC.

What to order?

One of the best things about pizza in New York is the sheer variety of different styles from cheap slices to the more familiar Neopolitan style we get in London. King of them all though is the square slice and they don’t come much better than at Emmy Squared. These deep dish rectangular beauties are the absolute nuts, with soft, thick dough, crispy edges and sweet tomato sauce that soaks right through the base – if you think you’re a pizza purist who would never go for a thick cake-like slice then think again, as this is pizza heaven. We love the ‘Colony’ pizza especially, topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, pickled jalapeños, and honey but really you can’t go wrong.

But it doesn’t stop there. Not content with knocking out incredible pizza, these guys also make one of the best burgers in New York, just casually on the side like it’s no big deal. So the perfect Emmy Squared order is to share a pizza and also share Le Big Matt, double-stacked grass fed beef patties, American cheese, greens, pickles, Sammy Sauce, and waffle fries. Pure joy.
