The former Little House of Boynton Beach, vacant since Chrissy Benoit shut it down last year, will become a pizza joint owned by the founder of Mastino Italian Soul Food in Delray Beach.
The name and opening date are still up in the air, but Salvatore Campanile will reportedly turn out Neapolitan-style pizzas and other casual Italian dishes from the 800-square-foot space, the 1940’s-vintage former residence dubbed the Ruth Jones Cottage.
Along with the one-time Little House, Campanile has also purchased the 96-year-old Oscar Magnuson House with the intent of turning it into a Mediterranean restaurant and grill. Both properties are on East Ocean Avenue in an area the city has long hoped to revitalize with new businesses. Maybe this time they’ll be successful.
