Emma’s Brick Oven Pizza
In business in Cranford for just over a decade, Emma’s is one of those places that has gained its clientele via word of mouth. Customers actually come from out of town to enjoy the authentic brick oven, thin crust pizza that the place has become known for. More of a rice balls person? You won’t be disappointed here. In fact, everything on the menu, from the fried goat cheese salad, to the basil pesto cream squares, to the spinach and sun dried tomato gnocchi, to the maple bourbon glazed salmon, to the eggplant, veal, chicken, or shrimp parmigiana, is fantastic.I am also particularly fond of their rice balls…. they are out of this world! Although there’s no doubt that the pizza is what gained Emma’s its greatest popularity. Thin crust, sweet sauce, and the freshest of cheeses makes their pizza a standout!
The restaurant does a great take-out business, but if you need a little warmth and coziness this winter season, stay and enjoy an in-house dinner. The sight and smell of the brick oven will warm your heart, and the delicious food will warm the rest of you. The BYOB restaurant is conveniently located right in the heart of downtown Cranford, at 101 North Union Avenue, so it’s the perfect place to go before or after a movie at the Cranford Theater.
