Emporio is known for their Roman style pizzas, which you can try on our Nolita/ Noho Tour. Paul is partial to the classic Margarita and says it definitely stacks up to the pizza he tried on his trip to Italy.
WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW: You can experience Emporio on many levels; happy hour is from 5:00 to 6:30 where you can enjoy $5 house wine and complimentary slices of pizza, olives and polenta bites.
Then head to the romantic back dining room with the giant skylight and enjoy the daily specials, which is where the chef and his staff get to experiment and have fun. I took Paul’s recommendation and tried the wild striped bass with pureed leeks, Brussels sprouts and Umbrian lentils, which was absolutely gorgeous!
