it’s rare that owning a restaurant feels like a labor of love, but emmy squared (and the full family of emily pizza joints) feels and tastes exactly like that. true love for the art of food, for the craft of pizza, and for each other. owners matt and emily’s first meal together was pizza, and after 13 years and 3 new york pizza restaurants, they landed at this- Emmy Squared, a detroit-style pizza oasis in south williamsburg.
it’s common in a city known for its pizza to get a bit of pizza fatigue. and when i know that there are so many exemplary by the slice joints, it’s rare that i venture to a formal sit-down restaurant to enjoy a slice. obvious notable exceptions being paulie gee’s, roberta’s, and lucali.
what not to miss
