Emmy Squared, a pizza place that started in New York, is now open in Philly with a location in Queen Village. They focus on crispy Detroit-style pan pizza, with options like a margarita with piles of creamy burrata on top and one with white barbecue sauce and Nashville hot chicken. Arguably the best thing on the menu, though, is the “Le Big Matt” burger. It’s a double patty with American cheese, pickles, and something called “sammy sauce,” and it’s already one of our favorite burgers in the entire city.
