Terroir Park Slope put its space up for rent about five months ago, and when it closed in August we knew that a new tenant had been lined up, but not who it would be. Well, now we know: Two Boots is coming back to the neighborhood.
A reliable source who asked to remain anonymous confirmed the rumors that have been swirling for weeks, and not only is the Manhattan-based Cajun-style pizza mini-chain moving into the space on the corner of Fifth and First, the owners are hoping to open next month.
Before Two Boots closed its location on Second Street just east of Seventh Avenue (after 25 years there) back in November of last year, the owners -- minus founder John Touhey -- vowed to re-open in the same space after some "big changes." Those never came to pass, and the space is still for rent for an insanely high sum of $16,000.
This one will be much smaller than the Seventh Avenue location, which leads me to believe that the menu will be closer to what's offered at the East Village spot than the way it was before: about a dozen specialty pizzas, a couple dozen topping options, and a handful of po' boys and salads versus a full menu of Cajun entrees, pastas, and burgers.
