Emmy Squared Pizza Wants to Open in Old Town Next Year at the Old Pizzeria Paradiso

That was fast.

Pizzeria Paradiso officially closed its doors at 124 King Street on October 4, and three days later Emmy Squared Pizza submitted a special use permit (SUP) application to start business at the prime spot in Old Town.

The Detroit-style pizza and burger joint would join eight other locations around the country, including in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, D.C.

Howard Greenstone, a partner with Emmy Squared, told ALXnow that he jumped at the chance to rent the property from landlord Asana.

“Old Town is a great market, ” Greenstone said. “It’s a fantastic place for us to be. It has a tremendous tourist population, but it has a very neighborhood feel, and we’re not an opulent concept. We’re just a really delicious sort of square pizza and burger concept that seems like it would fit there perfectly.”

Greenstone hopes that the new restaurant will open in the spring or summer.
