One of the best (top 3) burgers in the city and definitely a walk-in friendly place (although it could be long). The Emmy Burger is similar to Emily’s burger but with two patties instead of one. Split the burger with another person and get the Colony and a couple other pizzas for the table (depending on how many you have). It’s the worth the wait and you can do so at nearby places like Dante or Bar Veloce.

Emmy burger: LaFrieda dry-aged beef, EMMY sauce, caramelized onion, American cheese, & pickles on a Tom Cat Pretzel bun
