The infamous NYC-based pizza joint, Two Boots, has set up shop at 133 Newark Avenue and on June 18 the wait is over! When asked why he chose this new location for his nationwide restaurant, Phil Hartman explains, “Jersey City’s cool.” Well, we’re certainly glad he thinks so. Two Boots Pizza is joining an area that has become known as downtown Jersey City’s “restaurant row.” The area was rezoned last summer and includes parts of Newark Street, Grove Street, Jersey Avenue and Columbus Drive. Basically, it just allows restaurants with liquor licenses to be located closer to one another than previous laws mandated, in an effort to attract them to downtown JC.

Recent much-needed establishments that have opened in this newly zoned area include Barcade and Thirty Acres.
A soft-opening is tentatively scheduled for Monday evening, June 18, followed by an Opening Party on Wednesday, June 20 from 6pm – 8pm featuring live music and free pizza! Plus, delivery will begin the following week.
