Emmy Squared heads to the Upper East Side
Hit Detroit-inspired restaurant Emmy Squared is bringing its pizzas and burgers to the Upper East Side, with a new location at 1426 Third Avenue, on 81st Street. It’ll be a 1,400-square-foot place with 100 seats, including 30 outside.
The Williamsburg-born restaurant chain founded by Matt Hyland and Emily Hyland in 2016 has since opened in the East Village, as well as expanded to Nashville and soon Philadelphia. It’s part of a larger expansion plan for the brand. The new UES location opens in October, though the pizza menu hasn’t been solidified just yet. Stay tuned.
