This unassuming building on the corner of East Broadway and Clinton on the face of it looks pretty uninteresting. About a year ago a cute coffee shop opened up and besides serving tasty Stumptown brew the aesthetic was funkier than anything else this far east on the Lower East Side. Originally called Dora it’s now called Pushcart Coffee and word has it that around the corner in one of the other smaller store fronts on Clinton they are going to open up a pizza place (can’t wait!). Then yesterday in the smaller of the two store fronts on East Broadway I noticed an open door and lo and behold yet another interesting food place is opening up: Malt and Mold. The owner told me they were opening next week and that they would be selling beer – on draft in growlers – and cheese ergo Malt and Mold (love the name). The place looks straight out of Williamsburg and the concept is perfect – I wish them the best of luck and will report back here with more news and photos when they open. For now I just wanted to wet your appetites and let you know that as the Lower East Side develops it moves even further east, which of course I am particularly excited about because I live across the street!
