I actually thought the burger was too rich, there was way too much sauce, and it was a waste of decent meat.

would like to try the emmy squared one though.

Aaron said exactly what I was trying to say, except he said it clearly and succinctly.

Sounds like a version of the boards where smashed well-done patties are the definition of a burger, and Minetta style burgers are considered to have stopped being a burger, plus Sneak not being hungry that early.  :P

 

I hate to be serious, but I just want to note that I would object just as much if they only served the burger, say, from 9-10 or 10-11 or 11-12 (i.e., times when I actually like to eat).  It's the (artificially) limited availability I mainly object to, not the particular limitation.

sorry, i am on team Emily burger.. I love the burger and it can be enjoyed as long as you eat less than half of a half.  I would rather eat that than a steak at a restaurant..   It's something that was created by a chef, not just some protein that was heated up. It's so rare now that I eat red meat, that when I do, I am looking for something rich and decadent like this burger..

 

I don't think others are wrong for not liking it, i just want to say, there is very much a right time and place for that bad boy.  


Ason, I keep planets in orbit.

Yes, I understand. Once at Adler they refused to serve me the burger because they "only offer it at the bar", so we got up and left.

The Emmy Squared in the East Village.  I thought it was pretty good.  A few years ago some joint opened on First or Second Ave serving square pies on thick, bland, spongy crusts, and I hated it and it closed.  This place has figured out how to get plenty of flavor in the crust -- charring around the edge, cheese flavor evident throughout, plenty of oil.  I tried the margherita.  Would have fed two normal people (maybe with a side), so good value at $22.

 

Yes, I ate it all.

That's Nicoletta -- it doesn't serve square pies and it's still open, so I don't think that's what Wilf is talking about.

No, this was a non-cheffy place. Let me see if it's in the Pink Pig archives (it's probably on Mouthfuls somewhere).

It was called Solex when I went there, re-opened as Veloce Pizzeria.

It's basically fried in itself.

Mm, and if one must eat thick dough that seems to be a good idea.
