The second Atlanta location of pizzeria and Italian restaurant Emmy Squared is now open on Marietta Street along the Marietta Street Artery, next door to the former Octane coffee shop.
In addition to its Detroit-style square pizzas, the menu offers sandwiches like a crispy chicken parmesan, an eggplant parmesan skillet, a Brussels sprouts salad, and Emmy Squared’s double-stack cheeseburger served on a pretzel bun called the Le Big Matt. Look for wine, beer, and cocktails from the bar.
While no outdoor seating is available at the Marietta Street location, double garage doors in front of the restaurant give the dining room an indoor-outdoor vibe.
Emmy Squared first opened in Atlanta last April, replacing the Shed at Glenwood in Glenwood Park, which closed on Bill Kennedy Way in 2020. A representative for the restaurant told Eater at the time the company was scouting additional locations in the city to open more Emmy Squared pizzerias.
Emmy Squared originally opened in 2016 in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn and now includes three New York-area restaurants and restaurants in Nashville, Louisville, Charlotte, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.
Mozzarella and wine bar Bastone, owned by the White Bull chef Pat Pascarella, opens across the street from the Marietta Street location of Emmy Squared in the former Bocado space later this year. Bocado closed last March after 12 years at its Howell Mill Road location.
