Malt & Mold: Now Open

Malt & Mold is the second foodie destination in the building that sits on the South East corner of Clinton and East Broadway.  Hitherto the hinterlands of the Lower East Side, until last year when Dora now Pushcart Coffee opened and pushed the envelope as to how far east the trendy Lower East Side would go.  Apparently the old adage is true: if you build it they will come.

Malt & Mold is a beer and cheese shop with a focus on beer on  Growlers, they have 8 taps (not yet working they are still waiting on some paper work, but when I was in last Friday it seemed hopefully that they should be up and running maybe as soon as this weekend.  In addition to tap beer they have a selection of bottled beer, a finely curated  selection of domestic and international cheeses (the mold part of the name) and a small but nice collection of gourmet goodies which are mostly locally sourced (grab some awesome North Fork Potato Chips while you are getting some beer).

What a great addition to the neighborhood.  Fingers crossed that the empty corner space of this same building will continue the fabulous foodie trend of the rest of the building.

Oh and I also wanted to mention that the owners of Malt & Mold are a local couple, just another good reason to stop in and support this exciting new locally run local business,

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note: urbanfoodguy@gmail.com
