The area around 14th Street and First Avenue is about to become a dollar-slice mecca: 2 Bros. Pizza is opening a location in the former BaoBQ space, according to a contractor.

David Zem, one of the workers currently tiling the walls of 229 First Avenue in the style of the original 2 Bros. on St. Marks Place, said this location (the chain’s third in the East Village) would likely open in about two weeks.

The store, between 13th and 14th Streets, is poised right across from one of the two locations of Joey Pepperoni’s that recently opened, and just around the corner from the new Famous 99-Cent Pizza. Not to mention the $1 slice a block away at Papa John’s.

Meanwhile, next door to the incoming slice joint, the Subway that closed in October is up and running again.
