In a city that offers every bell and whistle you can imagine, sometimes you just want to keep things simple. Emmett’s is just that. With a no-frills yet welcoming atmosphere, Emmett’s serves Chicago-style deep-dish pizza, albeit a modified version that won the hearts of even the most purist of pizza aficionados, that pairs perfectly with a cold beer (available on tap). It’s a small space, 30 seats, so don’t be surprised if the guy behind the bar quotes you a decent wait time before you can grab a table. Oh, and that guy behind the bar will most likely be Emmett himself—or his brother, Dillon—who runs the restaurant.
Our recommendation: put your name down, take a walk down the nearby charming SoHo streets to work up an appetite, and head back for pizza that you’ll be dreaming of for nights to come.
