Two Boots Pizzeria invades Echo Park
Two Boots Pizzeria is about to hit serious pay dirt. The popular funkified New York City pizza parlor chain is moving into the space directly next door to the Echo in Echo Park. The economy may be tanking, but the owners of Two Boots can rest assured that a weak dollar will not keep the skinny-jeaned crustache set from late-night pizza binging.
The store itself is still a work in progress. It features peppy colored-glass windows, Barbie Dream House-pink walls and a very cool L.A.-centric mural depicting winged pigs and guitars soaring above the dark silhouette of the Echo Park and Silver Lake hills.
On the menu you'll find heroes, calzones, salads, po' boys, Stromboli and serious Sicilian-style pizza with fancy toppings. Check back for more info on when it will open.
Also in the works for the two spaces next door to Two Boots, according to the contractor, are an ice cream parlor and a record shop.
Two Boots, 1814 W. Sunset Blvd., Echo Park.
