Eric Boggs and Alex Coats, owners of Goodfellas Pizzeria
, opened their newest restaurant at 1211 Main St. in Over-the-Rhine on New Year’s Eve. They also have two locations in their native Lexington and one in Covington.
Goodfellas OTR is in the former Mayberry space, which was completely gutted and renovated by Urban Expansion
. A second floor was added, and the attic was turned into a mezzanine. There’s also a two-level outdoor patio and bar, with a bar on the ground floor.
The bar is designed like a 1920s speakeasy, with bourbon barrels and old crates used as decoration throughout the restaurant. Goodfellas specializes in pre-Prohibition-style cocktails and whiskey as well as pizza. The three bars will also feature craft beer.
Coats’ family is from Long Island, N.Y., and the pizza served at Goodfellas is New York-style — it’s made with hand-tossed crust, fresh ingredients and homemade sauce. Pizza can be purchased by the slice or in whole pies.
Goodfellas also has an ice program, which includes flavored ice, different types of ice and big blocks of ice that are chipped away at to chill drinks.
Goodfellas is open from 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday-Wednesday and 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. Thursday-Sunday. Lunch specials Monday-Friday include a slice of pizza, a side and a drink for $6.
