Two Boots Pizzeria Expanding to Baltimore

Posted on: May 31st, 2011 at 6:18 am by

With seven Manhattan slice spots under its collective waist belt, East Village pizza pioneer Two Boots Pizza is poised to launch yet another location outside city limits. According to a recent press release, franchise number eleven is coming soon to the Fitzgerald upscale apartment complex in the Mt. Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore.

As expected, owner Phil Hartman is engaging local artists to participate in decorating the restaurant – screen paintings by local artist Jenny Campbell and an installation from Baltimore’s American Visionary Arts Museum.

Even though this southward expansion of Cajun-style pizza already resulted in a new menu item – “Old Bay Beast” – we would love to see the following site-specific slices. Suggestions for possible toppings?

  1. The Avon Barksdale
  2. The Cal Ripken
  3. The Francis Scott Key
  4. The B&O Railway

Two Boots Baltimore officially opens its doors tonight.
