After six years in business, Matt Fish is starting to get the hang of the restaurant business.
His first locations in Lakewood and Cleveland Heights set the tone for funky, fresh, outrageous food based around a simple concept: gourmet grilled cheese, with a hearty selection of brew. Opening his third in Independence was a master stroke, offering a restaurant with personality in the midst of a culinary vacuum.
Melt’s new Mentor location is his largest, also fills a void, and has been tremendously popular since it’s November 2012 grand opening. But it also serves as a model of sorts for future expansion: In 2013, Matt plans to open his first Melt Bar and Grilled in Columbus’s smoking hot Short North district.
