Out of the corner of my ear, I’d heard the buzz building about a new joint in the downtown Syracuse neighborhood of Armory Square.
A couple blocks down Clinton Street from the fountains of Clinton Square sits Modern Malt.
It’s part of the blocks resurgence, along with Funk ‘N Waffles Downtown. More young professionals are renting refurbished apartments in the area, and they need spots to eat, drink and hang.
This is one of the restaurant/bar hybrids that caters to their needs. The food menu includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. The drink menu includes martinis.
The space ranges inside and out.
For saying so long to our great friend Melinda, I picked a booth (somewhat overriding my dear wife Karen, but I was not feeling th outdoor atmosphere). Melinda and I chose egg/toast/potato dishes, and Karen went for a grilled cheese/tomato soup combo. It was all quite tasty.
Conversation was so intense and important I neglected to take photos of the food.
I did note with my iPhone 6 before and after meal time, though, how hard they were trying to be hip.
Karen noted how nobody at lunch time was drinking a malt.
What do you think of Modern Malt’s outside look? What do you think of Modern Malt’s inside look? Click on the link above if you could and tell me what you think of Modern Malt’s menu.
