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.

Motorino isn't the best pizza in New York City, but it is one of our most frequented pizza joints in town.
There is definitely a scene at Narcissa, but it’s subdued and humble because the staff is nice and people are actually eating the food.

Mister Dips is a little trailer in a Williamsburg park where you can pick up a burger, some ice cream, and a thing of waffle fries covered in cheese.

Roberta’s is the most important pizza joint in New York City, and this commune of Brooklyn culture only gets better with age.
Archie’s Bar & Pizza
Archie’s in Bushwick is where you go for pizza by the slice, a full bar, and the kind of atmosphere that’s great if you’re already a little drunk.
