There's no lack of animosity between New York and Chicago pizza camps, and Emmett's in Soho makes a bold move by specializing in the thick and saucy pan pizza native to the Windy City. The pies here are on the larger side of two-inches deep (this is deep-dish, after all), with the cheese appropriately layered below the sauce and toppings. Pizza's not the only food on offer at the beer pub; a charred cheeseburger on a potato bun does just fine, too.
This Chicago-style pizza joint is basically the holy grail of cheesy, saucy creations in the city, and that reputation goes far beyond Emmett’s killer deep-dish pizza. Owner and Chicago native Emmett Burke supplements the deep-dish and tavern-style, thin-crust pies with sandwiches and a Chicago dog—and the menu also offers a handful of starters like a classic order of mozzarella sticks with a rich, thick marinara sauce for dipping.
