Profile

Detroit-style pizza? In Brooklyn? Were Cleveland and Pittsburgh styles unavailable? We confess to a New York bias, but isn’t this stuff simply Sicilian with an attitude? So what if some cheese is scattered around the upper edges, where dough meets pan, to make the rim crunchy like a Friulian frico? That happens all the time in pan-pizza kitchens without anyone trying. And yet the pizza here is so ridiculously good crisp but supple and springy (reminiscent, it merits saying, of the square pies Sara Jenkins made with a mashed-potato-enhanced dough at the late, great Veloce Pizzeria) that we’re willing to admit Emmy Squared is sui generis. Topping combos are spot on, too, especially the double-sauce Red Planet and the four-cheese Quinn.

Note

The restaurant’s downstairs burger bar is open on Fridays and Saturdays only.
