Soho Takeout Gem (Emporio NY) Offers Gluten Free Pizza
Being the hangout spot of choice for New York’s Italian finest, including the marketing team of Labourghini, NBA players, and an assortment of designers, models, and celebrities, don’t believe the lukewarm reviews of Emporio NY. It’s nothing short of amazing. My advice? Forgo the entrees and stick to the pizza.
Blessed with pies conceived in a brick oven with premium toppings and authentic Roman dough, Emporio sells memories, but takeout is best. Noisy, cramped, and plagued by so-so service, the pizza peaks when consumed at home with friends, over a few good films or a sexy iTunes soundtrack.
If you do decide to dine in, try their legendary happy hour (6 dollar drinks w/ free apps) or ask for the back. The skylight and romantic lighting is an even trade for the noise.
Did I mention all pizzas and calzones are offered GLUTEN FREE?? Like its sister restaurant Aurora (another haven for gluten/wheat allergy/intolerance sufferers), the Roman owners compassionately chose to cater to the digestively challenged. So take that celiac! Mangia! Enjoy.
