Why Just Watch Theater When You Can Participate? After, Eat Mouth-Watering Pizza
Like most New Yorkers, our first foray into immersive theater happened at a certain Chelsea hotel-without-hotel-rooms that remixes Shakespearean Macbeth with film noir. Ever since, when it comes to theater, we’ve been fans of the experimental and the eccentric. For your next immersive theater experience, head to JACK, where some brilliant show by some brilliant person is always on stage. See their full calendar here.
Acting is hard work, so after your turn exploring themes both weighty and sublime, head to Emily to experience a different sort of art by way of the holy trinity of cheese, carbs, and marinara. With a brick oven in the rear churning out fresh ‘za that is neither classic New York-style nor Neapolitan, Emily holds its own among the neoclassical pizzerias in Gotham. We know neoclassicism is usually reserved for esteemed arts and literature, but we dare you to argue that pizza isn’t cultural perfection of the highest rank. Whether you’re here for a red sauce-based pizza like the Camp Randall (made with sausage, mushroom, bell pepper and cheese curds) or want to satisfy sweet cravings with the Emily (made with pistachios, sottocenere, mozzarella, and honey) or S’mores calzone, Emily has got you covered. If you want something other than pizza, Emily’s got you covered too. Their Emmy burger—with a warm pretzel bun, charred onion, and a buffalo sauce-inspired “Emmy sauce”—and duck ragu pasta are both delicious.
