Although Philip (Phil) Hartman and Doris Kornish, who founded Two Boots Pizzeria 28 years ago, filed for divorce in 2005, now Hartman wants to boot Kornish out of the townhouse that has been the family home for years. She said: “planned to live in the house the rest of her life.”

The couple has been battling in court over the property at 113 E. Second St., worth an estimated $14 million. For a long time, they agreed to sell the property, which went into Chapter 11 to halt a seizure sale that had scheduled for October 2016. Warburg Realty plans to list 8,500 sf home for $10 million.

Filmmaker and restaurateur, 60, says in papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, that Kornish convinced him to let her stay until 2012, the time the youngest of their three children went to college. But she did leave. “I have done so much work in the house to make it my home,” Kornish told WSJ. Now she planned to live in the house the rest of her life and pass it along to her children, she said.

Kornish, who is set to get half the proceeds from the sale after the debt is paid off, transferred her stake in Two Boots to her husband as part of the divorce agreement. The pizzeria opened as the East Village was beginning to improve, and it is now expanding to more than a dozen locations.  [WSJ]
