FLUSHING, N.Y., April 4, 2012 – The New York Mets today announced Two Boots will be featured at Citi Field for the 2012 season. Two Boots, New York City’s pizza pioneers renowned for its Cajun-Italian pizza, will help celebrate the Mets 50th Anniversary season by creating a series of special slices inspired by Mets history.
Two Boots will be served at Taste of the City on the Field Level behind centerfield, the Caesars Club on the Excelsior Level and the Promenade Food Court behind home plate.
