New York has very little deep-dish Chicago pizza, and New Yorkers are mostly fine with that. But anyone curious about the style will find a solid, representative version at Emmett's in SoHo. JungMann, a Chowhound who knows his Chicago pizza, says the sausage-and-mushroom pie is on the mark, topped with tangy, spicy tomato sauce and marred only by an overly soft, bready texture. Emmett's, opened two months ago by a Second City transplant, also promises to add Chicago thin-crust tavern pizza and—attention, sandwich connoisseurs—the celebrated Italian beef on a roll, a rarity in these parts.
