Malden Reads’ pop up serves up venue’s last dance

16562246803_90abf95d50_zHave you ever heard of a pop-up restaurant? Well, Chef David Stein and the Malden Reads committee have. In fact, they recently pulled one off.

The idea of a pop-up restaurant is to take an old, unused space and turn it into a spot to drink and dine, hang out and maybe 17180767752_90bd6876ce_beven dance for one night only. David Stein, who has worked closely with Malden Reads for the past several years, conceived of the notion that Malden could experience this phenomenon for itself, and last Friday, April 17, the idea became a reality at the former location of My Honey Fitz on Pleasant Street.

Over 90 guests turned up to enjoy a meal of chicken “Scarborough Fair,” vegetable lasagna, slow-roasted brisket and much more as they danced and dined to the music of Soulshine, Stein’s bluesy new band.
