Mastino Wood Fired Italian Kitchen & Bar Opens Inside SoLita Delray Beach

The sausage broccolini pizza at Mastino combines broccoli rabe and sweet Italian sausage.
Nearly every corner of the country has its own style of pizza. There's Chicago deep-dish pies, New York thin-crust pizza, California-style slices, and Sicilian-style Detroit squares.

Sadly, Florida is not on the list of places with their own special pizza variety. But South Florida still loves its pies, and there's no denying it: In our search for the "best," we can always use another good pizza place. Especially if it's a Neapolitan pizza restaurant.

Lucky for us, Society 8 Hospitality Group's Steven Dapuzzo is looking to add to the choices with a new concept, Mastino Wood Fired Italian Kitchen & Bar, a casual Italian eatery that will go hand-in-hand with the group's SoLita establishments.

To see the partnership in action, Dapuzzo quietly opened the doors to his first Mastino establishment several weeks ago.

The grilled cheese is one sandwich that's been around a while. Of course, something as simple as toasted bread and melted cheese can be one of the easiest meals to make.

Yet, despite its basic construction, it can go from comfort food to gourmet fare with a few added touches. So the idea to open a restaurant that does nothing but perfect this satisfying creation sounds like a good one, right?

If that sounds good to you, look no further than Melt Crafted Grilled Cheese in Boynton Beach. According to Craig Larson, owner and founder of Melt, this won't be your grandma's grilled cheese.

Instead, think of it as grown-up grilled cheese -- with a twist.
