This Just In: Two Boots soft-opens tonight; freebies coming soon
As a food-obsessed Echo Parker, I've been watching the Two Boots pizzeria next door to the Echo for quite some time now. I get hunger pangs just looking at it, especially because its lights have often been on, but its doors locked, as it has dealt with a host of delays (it was originally shooting for a December opening).
That changes today. Two Boots opened its doors (ever so softly) late this afternoon, and will remain open for several more hours. "We had our very first customer moments ago," says manager Sharon Kochanski. Tomorrow it will open for the whole night, beginning at 4 p.m., and probably closing around 2 a.m. (yes, late-night pizza binge for me!).
On Thursday, Feb. 19, Kochanski says, Two Boots will celebrate its grand opening party, hopefully in conjunction with a show at the Echo. On that day, from 6 to 8 p.m., the restaurant will hand out free slices and sodas to all comers.
Two Boots, 1814 W. Sunset Blvd., L.A. (213) 413-2668.
