DAY 28: OCTOBER 28th, 2014
LOCATION: Emmett's (50 Macdougal St, NYC)
GUEST(S): Peter McNerney, Kitzi Taylor
ORDER: 1 slice of cheese, 1 slice of sausage
First best, Second city style pizza. Lucky for New York, a couple of brothers escaped Chicago and opened up cozy restaurant called Emmett’s in the center of Manhattan. Even luckier, they brought their pizza, hot dog, and Italian beef sandwich recipes with them! Emmett’s offers hearty deep dish pizza complete with the fried two inch high crust, layers of cheese, and piles of chunky tomato sauce. Also true to form, expect to wait the traditionally long cook-time. May as well take advantage of top tier Chi-town brews and authentic vienna beef hot dogs while you wait. Don't spoil your appetite though, because you are going to need it. True to the deep dish tradition Ike Sewell and Rudy Malnati began back in 1943, Emmett's pizza is a meal in itself. Even a small pie can feed up to three hungry adults. Although the courteous staff and non-intrusive music are a nice bonus, I am going back for the deep dish.
