It’s on! 2 Bros. Pizza opened next to Vinny Vincenz on First Avenue today. Last month, The Local reported that the incoming dollar-slice joint had forced the neighborhood long-timer to lower its prices, to the chagrin of the owner.

Around 3 p.m., 2 Bros. was mostly empty. Meanwhile Vinny Vincenz maintained a brisk business, as did Joey Pepperoni across the street. 2 Bros. has not yet set its hours, but expects to be open from 10 a.m. until 2 a.m.

Asked about the competition, owner Oren Halali replied, “We’re not worried about competition. They should be worried about us; we have the best pizza and the best deal.”
