Steven Dapuzzo, owner of SoLita Las Olas, said he'll open a second SoLita in Delray Beach in the old Kyoto restaurant space.
"It's a good fit - SoLita is needed in downtown Delray," he said. "It's a place for grown-ups to hang out."
SoLita will bring its traditional-with-a-twist Italian menu and late-night lounge act to Pineapple Grove, in the plaza that housed sushi favorite, Kyoto. The space has a courtyard, and adjacent lounge and is "perfect" for SoLita, Dapuzzo said.
The same late-night menus, live music and DJs will be served up for the crowds. Expect a late-February or early March opening.
