For former ADA Jared Mogil‘s birthday, we headed Emmy Squared, which is one restaurant of several awesome Pizza Loves Emily Restaurant group. Although pizza is their main focus, their burger (which seriously will sell out) always tops lists of best burgers in the city. Pro tip: spilt the burger and get pizza to share.
Also known as Le Big Matt, the burger oozing with a double-stacked Pat Lafried grass-fed beef patties, American cheese, greens, pickles, and the proprietary Sammy sauce. If that wasn’t enough, it also comes with a side of waffle fries. This epic burger is cooked to perfection.
On to the pizza! Serving up thick-cut Detroit style pizza, there is a topping combination for every palate. We decided to do something a little different from our usual style and went for the Hot Chicken: Nashville hot chicken, ‘Bama white sauce, and chopped pickle. It was a spicy, crispy pizza dream come true. Pickles on pizza might sound weird, but it really helped balance out the other flavors.
I highly recommend Emmy Squared in Williamsburg but be sure to get a reservation. The later you go, the more likely the burger will be sold out.
