Of all the new restaurants Scott Harris has launched this year — and he’s had a lot — Dough Boys was probably the most unexpected. It is housed right next to Salatino’s, which used to be called Gennaro’s. But this venture doesn’t have anything to do with the food that will be served there. It’s a partnership with Jimmy Bannos, who is most famous for his work with Heaven on Seven and The Purple Pig. Dough Boys will be serving three kinds of pizza, a thin crust, stuffed, and, what they are calling, “Pizza al Metro.” That latter item is three feet long, should feed eight to ten people, and will cost $29.95. There are five different salads, and seven sandwiches available on either focaccia or panino bread. Hopes are high from this modest pizza opening, and you can check it out for yourself tonight.
