  • 5 Ways to Celebrate National Pizza Day with Your Pet in New York City

    by Nicole Pinto

    In honor of National Pizza Day (which is also, coincidentally, National Bagel Day), why not take some time to explore different pizza and bagel spots with your four-legged friend!

    New York City is known for its pizza and bagels, and as the native New Yorker on the Barkly team, I’m excited to share a few recommendations for your carbohydrate enjoyment:

    1. Pizza Beach

    The description from their website says it best: “At Pizza Beach, New York meets Malibu with its unique 90s-retro beachside café vibe, lively with strings of lights draped from the wooden rafters and hanging ferns, cast open french doors and a summer al fresco cafe. Be it snowy or sweltering out, it’s always, always sunny at Pizza Beach!”

    Bonus points to this joint because you can dine with your dog at the sidewalk tables during the summer months.


    Upper East Side
    1426 3rd Ave
    New York, NY 10028

    Lower East Side
    167 Orchard Street (at the corner of Stanton)
    New York, NY 10008

    2. Emily & Emmy Squared

    Husband-and-wife duo, Matt and Emily, started both the Emily and Emmy Squared restaurants out of a shared love for high-quality, artisanal food (and when they started dating in college, their first shared meal was a pizza!). Emily offers “Italian-style pies that are simple, thin, and crispy,” while Emmy Squared focuses on “doughier, rectangular Detroit-style pies.”

    To celebrate with your pet, we recommend placing an order for pick-up, or using their delivery option through Caviar.

    Brooklyn, NY

    364 Grand Street (at Marcy Avenue)
    Williamsburg, NY

    3. H&H Bagels*

    H&H Bagels are a New York City establishment. Founded in 1972, they have offered consistent quality bagels ever since. H&H has also become a pop culture staple, referenced in TV and film such as Seinfeld and You’ve Got Mail, respectively. The two former locations on the Upper West Side and Hell’s Kitchen have since closed, but H&H has now relocated to its new homes on the Upper East Side and Upper West Side.


    Upper East Side
    1551 2nd Ave
    New York, NY 10028

    Upper West Side
    526 Columbus Ave
    New York, NY 10024

    4. Ess-a-Bagel*

    Ess-a-Bagel was established in 1976 by a brother-and-sister duo, hailing from an Austrian baking family. Their large, hand-rolled bagels have become famous not just in NYC, but nationally as well. Ess-a-Bagel’s first location on 21st and 1st has since closed, but it now has two new locations in both the East Village/Stuyvesant Town area (just a few short blocks from the original) and Midtown East.


    Stuyvesant Town
    324 1st Ave
    New York, NY 10009

    Midtown East
    831 3rd Ave
    New York, NY 10022

    (* while you might not be able to bring you dog inside these establishments, you can get a bagel to go and enjoy it in one of the nearby parks while your pup begs you to share a bite!)
