The Malt House’s Elevated Pub Fare: Three Dishes to Order on Your Next Visit

When you think of pub food, you might conjure up images of battered, over-salted dishes with nary a vegetable in sight. That’s not what you’ll find at the Malt House (9 Maiden Ln.), a tavern-style haunt that offers a more refined iteration of fresh comfort food. Yes, you can still get fried, savory goodness — not to mention four delicious cocktails in need of your attention — but you’ll also find chef-driven entrees that make the most of seasonal produce and high-quality meats. 

Here are three recommendations for the next time you’re headed through Malt House’s double doors.

Mahi mahi tacos 

These tacos bring together succulent pieces of mahi mahi topped with flavorful pickled red cabbage, a dollop of black bean salad, creamy avocado and a drizzle of chipotle aioli. Squeeze a lime over the top of them to kick things up a notch. 

Burrata toast 

Burrata is having a moment these days, with seemingly every stylish restaurant making the soft cheese the centerpiece of a dish or two. You’ll understand what all the fuss is about once you take a bite of this Malt House joint, piled high with olive tapenade, juicy watermelon, fresh basil and a balsamic-drizzle finish. 

Classic Cobb salad 

You might not think of a salad as being especially decadent, but trust us. This one is a doozy. Chefs Marcos and Tomas Gonzales don’t skimp on the Cajun-spiced chicken breast. Plus you’ve got the cherry tomatoes, corn, avocado, egg, blue cheese and bacon lardons. The salad is served with a side of champagne vinaigrette.
