Brooklyn breakout star, Emily, is ready to take a piece of Manhattan’s pizza pie.
The husband-and-wife owned outfit recently moved into the space vacated by Blue Ribbon Bakery Kitchen — granting them congruous use of the painstakingly restored, 150-year-old wood-fired oven. (How awesome is that news?)
Having this splendid, 18-foot-deep prize at their disposal has inspired them to showcase both pizza styles, perfected at their duo of outer-borough establishments. Look for a quartet of classic New York rounds (such as the “Margot,” with herbs and spicy anchovies, and the “Dune Road,” sporting Calabrian chilies and clams), as well as cheese-crusted, Detroit-style squares divided into The Reds, The Pinks, The Greens and The Whites (don’t miss newcomer “The Pig Freaker,” topped with kimchi, sesame, miso queso and pulled pork).
And being that they’ve become equally well known for their limited quantity Emmy Burger (boasting Tom Cat pretzel buns, caramelized onions, and Pat LaFrieda beef), acolytes will be pleased to find they’re readily available at the West Village location. Although it’s well worth checking out a lamb version (tricked out with green papaya, pakora onion rings and achaar aioli), or alterna-sandwiches such as the Pressed Duck, lined with radishes, cucumbers, and lashings of Chinese mustard.
Neighborhood stalwarts like Joe’s and The Spotted Pig are officially on notice — the pizza and burger-blessed Emily is firing on all cylinders.
