LOCATION: Emmy Squared (364 Grand St., Brooklyn, NY 11211)
GUEST(S): Lance Kushner
ORDER: 3 slices of Roni Supreme (sauce, mozzarella, lots of pepperoni, Calabrian chili) 2 slices of Margherita (sauce, basil, burrata)
Motor City pizza for the New York City palate. Thanks to Emmy Squared, you can get a taste of Detroit style pizza in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. While their homage to the style includes the characteristic topping-centric twice baked rectangular deep dish pies, it goes the extra mile by using the highest quality ingredients on the market. The Margherita, for instance, comes fully loaded with freshly cut basil, a rich savory tomato sauce, and creamy burrata cheese (making it the cream of the crop in more ways than one!) Another popular signature pie is the Roni Supreme which combines hand cut pepperoni and Calabrian chiles for a tasty zing and a memorable sting with every bite - perfect for spicy food lovers! Beneath the toppings on each pie lies a golden-brown melted cheese which, provides a tasty foundation and crunchy texture to the surprisingly-filling slice. Bring leftovers home. They reheat well. If you like Detroit style pizza or are curious about it, I strongly recommend you try Emmy Squared. You might spend a bit more than you are used to for a pie, but it could be your new favorite pizzeria and it will definitely cost less than a flight to Michigan

1. Lance Kushner and I played softball before pizza. Although we play on the same team usually, we were drafted on opposing teams for the Williamsburg Softball fall league pitting us against each other. This round, Lance definitively won. His team won and while I went zero for three against his pitching, he went three for three (a double short of a cycle).
2. After Robin Rothman and I reheated our leftover pizza, we rounded out the night by visiting the Carnegie Deli on Rosh Hashana. Pastrami, pickles, and and egg cream was a great way to ring in the new year. L'Shona Tova!
