A look at the former GG's space on 5th Street
GG's ended its three-year run on Fifth Street between Avenue A and Avenue B two months ago to the date — Dec. 23.
The pizzeria's ownership decided to focus on other projects. It had been reported that Emmy Squared, the Williamsburg pizzeria serving Detroit-style pizza, was taking over. (CB3 OK'd their new liquor license back in December.)
A few readers asked what was happening with the space... there hadn't much activity here. In fact, a look inside in late January showed a motorcycle parked in the former dining room...
Since then, the space has been cleared out...
I reached out to the Emmy Squared folks a few weeks back... and they didn't have any updates just yet. They originally expected to open this spring, per Eater.
Emmy Squared is also opening an outpost soon in Nashville.
