Cane Rosso is Dallas’ obvious destination for a killer slice of pizza, but this weekend, the original Deep Ellum location will become home to one of the country’s best burgers — and fried chicken sandwiches! — for one night only.
Announced via release, Cane Rosso will host Matthew and Emily Hyland of Brooklyn’s much-lauded restaurants Emily and Emmy Squared. For the unfamiliar, Emily and Emmy Squared have earned much praise from critics and food publications across the country. Last year, Eater New York critic Ryan Sutton called the duo of restaurants “two of NYC’s most exciting pizzerias.”
But unfortunately, the Hylands won’t be serving up their trademark Detroit-style pizza. Which means that you’ll have to drown your sorrows in a spicy chicken sandwich or the equally-famous Emmy burger, which features a dry-aged beef patty, aged Vermont cheddar, secret “Emmy sauce,” and caramelized onions on a freshly-baked pretzel roll. That might be the world’s best example of a consolation prize.
The Emily pop-up will be hosted at Cane Rosso Deep Ellum on January 9, kicking off Cane Rosso’s Guest Chef series. Dallas faves like Misti Norris, Danyele McPherson, and Neighborhood Services’ Jeff Bekavac are already lined up for future Guest Chef dinners.
