The original Emmy Squared, in Williamsburg, serves the seventh best pizza and fourth best burger in the entire city, so we’re glad those things are now twice as accessible. This newer location is in the East Village, and has a nearly identical menu of Detroit-style pies and other things like salads and sandwiches (the only addition is a delicious white pie topped with Indian pickles and cauliflower). The two-room space is big, with a bar up front, a couple of booths, and lots of small tables, but you should still try to make a reservation.
