From the twinkle-lit bar to the fifties-inspired table covers to the cheesy murals of Mississippi steamboats and Venetian carnivals, Two Boots funkily fuses two distinct worlds—Italy and the Big Easy—in both its décor and its menu. Huge portions of Louisiana favorites, like po’ boys, catfish, and jambalaya, are backed by sides like sweet-potato fries and southern-style greens; those in the know bypass the largely forgettable pastas for one of two dozen varieties of fine, cornmeal-dusted thin-crust pizzas, available with traditional red sauce or a fiery, N’Awlins-inspired variation (yes, andouille and crawfish are topping options). The bar scene, lazy at lunchtime, picks up after dark and features live music every weekend. Pleasantly potent frozen drinks—from the Southern Comfort–stoked Cherry Bomb to the Super Cajun Bloody Mary—enliven the weekend brunch and provide a tasty lubricant for cocktail or birthday parties in the booth-lined party room or out on the umbrella-shaded, outdoor patio.Kids' Menu
The Two Boots spring-through-summer lunch menu mimics its dinner offerings, but with smaller portions and kid-friendly plates like hot dogs and macaroni and cheese, with or without “trees” (broccoli florets). Supper servers gladly offer kids’ menu choices, provided the kitchen’s not swamped. The newly expanded menu includes a vegetarian chili dip, tater tots, and root beer floats.Recommended Dishes
Voodoo southern-fried chicken, $13.95; large verde e bianco pizza, $19.50; blackened catfish, $14.95
