At Emily in Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill, Emily and Matthew Hyland offer four wines on tap and a page of bottles to go with their pies. With choices such as Turley zinfandel and Le Ragnaie Rosso di Montalcino, you could argue that this isn’t your typical pizza joint—this winter, sides included ambitious dishes like a play on the classic Caesar with raw kohlrabi ribbons, and miso-maple-glazed butternut squash over creamy steel cut oats. But pizza is the main event, cooked hot and fast in the wood-burning oven at the center of the open kitchen. Try the ’Nduja, the spicy sausage scattered across a green sauce made of tomatillos, with a bottle of ramato from Long Island’s Channing Daughters; or the Sophier, a strangely compelling combination of red sauce, mozzarella and grainy mustard, with Raventos i Blanc de Nit, a sparkling Catalan rosado.
