There currently aren’t many options for Chicago-style deep dish in NYC. Maybe because New Yorkers are typically skeptical of any pizza that you can’t fold in half. If you want to eat deep dish, one of your only options is Emmett’s. This is a tiny place in Soho that feels like an old-school tavern, and it’s where you can get a pizza that’s several inches thick and full of melted cheese. The crust is a little dry - but, if you like cheese, it’ll probably make you happy. The thin crust pizzas here are also pretty good, although you don’t really need to pay attention to the rest of the menu.

Papatzul seems to be just more middle-of-the road Mexican that pairs acceptably with strong margaritas. It’s the kind of place where you have to yell at the person sitting across from you, and should probably order everything the moment you see your server because you might not see him again for a while.
