I Googled and found about a dozen Two Boots pizzerias around lower Manhattan and Brooklyn, maybe. It seemed similar to the one I remember, but it was a one-off with a different logo, and none of the current crop is quite where I remember this being. I want to say it was on First Avenue around Second Street, but it's been over 20 years now (!) so memory may be failing me.
I also remember it as more of a bistro with pasta dishes and such and possibly pizza as a sideline, rather than being a pizzeria; but again, it's been a while, and while it was a fun thing, I was really more focused on a very challenging (and exciting) new program I was building at work at the time.

It was primarily a pasta bistro at the time, but they offered pizza with a partly cornbread crust and a mix of Italian-Southern toppings.
