“Known for its Detroit-style pizzas and award-winning burgers, Emmy Squared, the beloved Brooklyn-born restaurant opens its first Washington D.C. location in Shaw Wednesday”

1924 8th Street, NW at Florida Ave

From a press release:

“Known for its Detroit-style pizzas and award-winning burgers, Emmy Squared, the beloved Brooklyn-born restaurant opens its first Washington D.C. location in Shaw (1924 8th St NW, Washington, DC 20001) on Wednesday, January 15. Co-founded by Emily Hyland and Executive Chef Matt Hyland, along with partners Howard Greenstone and Ken Levitan, the Pizza Loves Emily group has expanded on the East Coast with the opening of its seventh Emmy Squared in Washington D.C., with additional outposts in New York, Nashville and most recently Philadelphia.

“Washington DC is the natural progression for our expansion, and having owned restaurants in Washington DC prior, I’ve found it to be a great restaurant city. We felt that choosing Shaw district for our first location made sense and the restaurant is the former Kysiran space which is small, intimate, and a perfect setting for us,” explains Greenstone.

Emmy Squared’s menu is anchored by signature red and white square shape pies such as The Colony topped with pepperoni, pickled jalapeños and honey, The Emmy made with banana peppers, red onion, ranch, and a side sauce as well as burgers such as the Le Big Matt featuring double-stack grass fed beef patties, American cheese, greens, pickles and Sammy Sauce.

Exclusive to the Shaw location, new items include EC Shaw Wings with EC Shaw sauce, peanuts, scallions, ranch, and EC Shaw Pizza, a white pie topped with fried chicken, blue cheese and red onions. Both dishes feature the EC Shaw sauce, Emmy Squared’s house-made version of the classic D.C. Mumbo sauce, and also pays homage to Emily’s full maiden name, Emily Candace Shaw. The menu also highlights a selection of salads, loaded fries, and sandwiches served on pretzel buns. All pizza pies can be enjoyed gluten-free, as well.

The 65-seat restaurant will be open for dinner and weekend lunch that will include the popular Chopped Cheeseburger ($10) and bottomless Mimosas/Bloody Marys ($20). Happy hour and a late-night menu will also be available. The opening hours (EST) are as follows:
· Monday and Tuesday: Closed
· Wednesday and Thursday: Happy Hour: 4PM – 6PM, Dinner: 4PM – 11PM
· Friday: Happy Hour: 4PM – 6PM, Dinner: 4PM – 11PM, Late Night Menu: 11PM – 2AM
· Saturday: Lunch: 11AM – 3PM, Dinner: 3PM – 11PM, Late Night Menu: 11PM – 2AM
· Sunday: Lunch: 11AM – 3PM, Dinner: 3PM – 10PM

A second Emmy Squared is slated to open in Washington D.C.’s Navy Yard later this year.
