Matt Fish's emporium of cheese, which is more like a ever-expanding kingdom of cheese at this point, will set up its next outpost of gooey deliciousness out east in Mentor.

This will be the fourth Melt to dot the Northeast Ohio landscape. October is the planned launch.

Fish and Mentor officials had some comments on why this is a good thing. Via Patch:

"I know there are people from Mentor who already come to Melt," he said. "But there are also people who prefer to stay in the area. So this is going to open a whole new market for us."

Ron Traub, the city of Mentor's director of business and economic development, said Melt's opening brings with it "a sense of culinary arrival" for Mentor.

"Mr. Fish and Melt are hot numbers in the Greater Cleveland area and even nationally," he said. "To have them open a restaurant in Mentor is exciting."

So, to recap: Melt = culinary arrival, and Matt Fish = a "hot number."
