‘Malt & Mold’ Folds After 6 Years on East Broadway
It was an above-average run, but Malt & Mold’s Lower East Side flagship is now swimming with the fishes. The gourmet specialty shop served the neighborhood for better than six years.
An announcement in the entrance of 221 East Broadway notes that this original location is closed and that customers can instead visit the Gramercy location.
No mention of this news made it into the email newsletter that went out just a few days ago. And ownership did not immediately respond to our request for comment on the closure.
Malt & Mold, which specializes in “artisanal” cheese and microbrews, debuted at 221 East Broadway back in May 2012. It’s owned by the oft-kilt-clad Kevin Heald, who is a longtime resident of the Lower East Side.
