We're not sure why, but mustachios are all the rage right now. Whether its a Handlebar, Fu Manchu, or the Pancho Villa, there is one person who is best known for his perfect 'stache: the legendary Tom Selleck.
Recently, Clean Plate Charlie received word that Tom Sellick opened a new pizza place in Boca Raton. Turns out: it's not the same Selleck. But the heavily tattooed pizza maker and owner of Spadini's Mizner Pizzeria does have a massive tattoo of the world's most famous mustachioed private investigator. And he's pretty serious about his New York-style pizza too.
Among other celebrity portraits, Sellick, the avid tattoo enthusiast, has his namesake and other celebrity portraits splayed across his body. His tattoo artist, Bili Vegas, was on the show Ink Master.
The 31-year-old Sellick has been making pizzas for 15 years. The North Port, Long Island native just opened Spadini's Mizner Pizzeria on the 7th of February. And the guy takes his pizza seriously: shipping down his dough from up north multiple times per week. The sauce is made fresh daily.
The menu is filled with traditional New York-style Italian fare: stuffed shells ($10.95), lasagna ($10.95), chicken parmesan ($11.95), meatball parmesan sub ($8.95). Specialty pies include your basic New York style cheese and move up to things like rigatoni, pesto sun-dried tomato, and barbecue chicken. All pizzas are available by the pie (starting at $17) or the slice (starting at 3 bucks). The spot also serves calzones ($7.50) and strombolis ($8.50).
The spot offers multiple specials. Two for one hoagies--except veal or shrimp--are offered on Mondays. On Wednesdays, 16-inch cheese pizzas are 8 bucks all day. Everyday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., lunch specials include free sodas with purchase of two slices of pizza or a hero and 20% off all pasta dishes.
