There’s a whole new generation of pizza places popping up all around NYC these days. Now that restaurants like Roberta’s and Paulie Gee’s have become institutions, they’ve inspired new people to follow their passion and make pizza. One such place is Emily, which opened recently in Clinton Hill. In fact, the owners spent some time at another of my favorite places, Brooklyn Central. I had the Luca — a classic combination of tomato sauce, buffalo mozzarella, and basil (along with a generous sprinkling of another cheese, possibly pecorino). There was a great balance of ingredients, and the crust was thin and wonderfully charred. I also had a taste of a great pizza called Emily, a white pie topped with honey, pistachios, and a truffle-infused cheese called sottocenere. I can’t wait to work my way through the rest of their menu.
