THE MALT HOUSE – NEW HOME IN THE FINANCIAL DISTRICT
The Malt House has a new home! Located in the heart of Historic New York widely known as the Financial District of Manhattan, The Malt House FiDi first opened its doors in May 2016. The owners, Darren Shore and Eoin Foyle, may be from Ireland but they are no foreigners to the city’s highly competitive restaurant business. The tavern’s sister branch located in the Greenwich Village has become a NYC hot spot since its debut in 2012. Executive Chef Armando Avila, formerly at STK and 5 Napkin Burger, takes American comfort classics and palates to new heights. With a menu crafted by a chef who was quite literally born in the kitchen, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that The Malt House FiDi is off to a great start.
On a Tuesday evening The Malt House FiDi is bustling with people who have loosened up their ties and traded in their fancy pens for a drink or two at the 60 ft-long Arch Main Bar. The lower level, also known as the Armoury, accommodates 75-150 patrons with a selection of over 200 whiskeys and 40 draft lines! American flags are framed along the walls serving as a visual history lesson of the United States flag beginning with the 1660’s and ending with present day. Up at the Mezzanine, which stands at about 18ft above the main floor and comfortably seats 20, one can see the original 1880’s Carnegie steel. But the most interesting room in this three-story bar is the private boardroom decorated with leather couches, a long wooden table and gold leaf ceilings. This room can be reserved for private parties as it filters the loud fast-tempo music that permeates through the rest of the dimly lit tavern.
Chicken served with mashed potatoes, sauteed kale, and mushrooms. The mashed potatoes are otherworldly.
