The Abu Dhabi opening will be the first international location for the celebrated brand.
Emmy Squared Pizza, renowned for its Detroit-style pizza and handcrafted sandwiches, will debut in Abu Dhabi later this year. As the first international location for the popular pizza brand, which originated in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2016, the licensed restaurant will be the first of its kind in the UAE when it opens at Yas Bay Waterfront.
Specialising in Detroit-style pizza, Emmy Squared’s pizza is marked by its square shape, crispy bottom, fluffy focaccia-like dough, caramelised cheesy “frico” crust, and signature sauce stripes. In addition to the signature pizzas, guests can enjoy handcrafted sandwich options served on a buttery pretzel bun, including the popular double-stacked grass-fed burger “Le Big Matt.” Fresh seasonal salads, Sriracha crystal glaze wings, cheesy garlic sticks and other Emmy Squared signature dishes will also be available.
Emmy Squared has been brought to the Middle East by acclaimed restaurateur Samer S. Hamadeh, founder of the FACT award-winning Akiba Dori, as well as Stereo Arcade and Republique. “It’s a real challenge to have to talk about Emmy Squared without being able to bite into a slice of their pizza or one of their epic sandwiches to go with this conversation; I’ve rarely found food to be a revelation, but this was one of those rare occasions. The moment I finished my meal at Emmy Squared in NYC, was the moment I got in touch with the team and brought up the idea of launching Emmy Squared in the UAE. I like to create my own concepts and that’s not a secret, but this was just too good to pass up on” he said.
Emmy Squared Abu Dhabi will be the thirteenth location for the brand. It will maintain the company’s mission to make every location an inviting place to gather for great food and handcrafted cocktails. Emphasising quality ingredients and impeccable hospitality that has won hearts across America, Abu Dhabi joins New York City, Nashville, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Virginia, Atlanta, Kentucky in offering the beloved square shaped Detroit-style pizza.
