The Malt House is not your regular tavern: for sure, you will get a nice selection of beer, on tap or bottle, as well as any kind of drink you could think of, from wine to scotch, without forgetting their cocktails. No, what makes this place special is their menu crafted by Executive Chef Armando Avila, who from Mexico to New York, worked in places like STK or 5 Napkin Burger.

At The Malt House, you will get bar food, but elevated, like the lobster mac and cheese, made with a blend of white cheddar, gruyere and parmesan, topped with a nice size lobster claw; some surprising dishes like the tempura pickles that I thought were fried chicken; or some bar classics such as the delicious Malt House Burger served with hickory smoked bacon, an onion marmelade that added some nice sweetness, lettuce, tomato and some cheese, one of my favorite dishes was the wings that were served with roquefort sauce. Another classic is the beer and bacon batter onion rings that definitely have an appetizing bacon aroma. There is food for any palate and it makes this place more than just a bar.

Here is what I had:

Cheese curds: white cheddar smothered by panko flakes and fried. It was served with the Malt House sauce and a chipotle aioli.

It was overall good, Chef Avila giving a good spin on American comfort food. But if you go there, try for sure the burger: you will not regret it!

Enjoy (I did)!
