Funny enough, I was at the same community board meeting with the fine folks at the Emily over a year ago. Just to give you an idea of how long I have been waiting to open my place.. While we have gone to Emily a few times over the last year, yesterday was the first time I really remember being there.
It's amazing how much adulation this place has received. I am really so happy for them.
So, yesterday we started with two salads:
The first was a spinach salad, the second was a kale salad.
Spinach salad was really nice. Beautiful spinach actually. Really lovely. I think it had toasted soy beans as well and really lovely radishes.
The kale salad while good, was a little less memorable.. They had dried cherries. But, the predominant flavor was lemon.
Very few people can get me excited about a kale salad.. this was good but, not too exciting.
The star of the show is the pizza.. This is really nice. It is super cheesy and has this beautiful creamy mozzarella. More saucy than your traditional Neapolitan. i am a big fan
this pizza, the colony was really not my favorite.. Miss A liked it just fine, i thought the honey didn't really much. I have other pizza's with honey where I enjoyed.. I just didn't like it so much.
the next pizza was also a meaty dish.. It was the RM13 or something to that affect.. It had fontina, bentons ham, the same pepporoni that the colony had and some sausage.. I found this to be delicious though, my favorite of the day remains the regular pizza.
Staff was awesome, room was lovely. A perfect neighborhood spot.. So fortunate to have them in my neighborhood.. It's been so wild watching all of these wonderful places pop up.
