Emmy Squared, known for its innovative Detroit-style pizza, brings its unique concept to the shores of Jeddah at the Jeddah Yacht Club. Founded by restaurateur Emily Hyland, this eatery introduced the Detroit-style pizza to New York, putting a contemporary twist on a classic favorite.
The hallmark of Emmy Squared’s pizzas is their square shape, traditionally baked in steel pans. These signature pies feature a ‘frico’ cheese crust, setting them apart from the ordinary. Emmy Squared’s success lies a blend of tradition and modernity, evident in their acclaimed square pizzas with saucy stripes and irresistible flavors.
Emmy Squared’s menu isn’t limited to just pizza – it has many other menu items. Among their top-sellers is the Le Big Matt, a double-stacked hamburger known as one of New York City’s finest. From salads to appetizers, sandwiches to delectable desserts, each dish is prepared using the freshest ingredients to ensure an unforgettable dining experience.
This branch at the Jeddah Yacht Club marks Emmy Squared’s debut in Saudi Arabia. Known for merging the classic New York style grandma pie with the Detroit style, their pizza features a unique focaccia-like dough with a caramelized, crispy frico crust – a culinary masterpiece in every bite.
An ambiance that mirrors New York’s chic vibe at this new addition, with exposed brick walls, tiled floors, and leather along with brass accents, the restaurant promises a delightful experience.
In addition, Emmy’s preparing for a challenge named the Scorcher Challenge , where you need to prepare for a fiery opportunity at Emmy Squared to earn a spot on their exclusive “Wall of Flame”. Calling all hot sauce fans—a thrilling challenge awaits you.
Here’s how it goes: commence with level 1 spiciness on either their Burger or the Chicken Katsu Sandwich. And here’s the kicker—you’ll receive a complimentary glass of milk to cool down, but hold off for an exciting 10 minutes after indulging in the fiery feast before taking a sip. This challenge tests your spicy resilience, measuring how long you can endure without reaching for that refreshing milk. Take on the challenge, and your photo earns its place on their “Wall of Flame.”
The challenge consists of four different levels, where completing all tiers earns you a certificate of competition by Emmy Squared themselves.
