Mel’s is a pizza restaurant run by Michelin-decorated Chef Melissa Rodriguez. The centerpiece of the menu is a wood-oven pizza, designed to be a cross between a Neapolitan pie and a New York slice; with a chewy, bready crust and enough structural integrity to be eaten slice in hand.

Really impressed with service, food, and atmosphere. Very minimal feedback but there were no traditional munchies that you usually get before apps or meal. Also felt like the drink menu was great and I tried a new drink “Summer Fling” and really enjoyed it but would have rather had a muddled fruit old fashioned. I would definitely go back!
