The MáLà Project now open on 1st Avenue

The restaurant is in the soft open stages now at 122 First Ave. between East Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place.

Here's their official description via Facebook: "An upbeat and energetic Chinese restaurant, focusing on Málà Dry Pot, along with original Chinese dishes and small bites."

And their menu, via Facebook...

Nick Solares at Eater has photos and more details of the place here. (The restaurant website is here.) One note: They were approved to sell beer and wine, but the license has not yet arrived.

The previous tenant, South Brooklyn Pizza, closed in April 2014. In the fall of 2014, the owners of the International next door explored moving into the space, though those plans never materialized.

Nice friendly people, was not sure what I was ordering but as with Xian Famous Foods was aware that it is based on real authentic Chinese food and not Americanized version. Enjoyed it but a bit too spicy for me. Will return again and try to convince them to be a bit less liberal in my orders with red chilies as my taste buds are not accustomed. For those who are devotees of heat in their food and worship real sichuan flavor, it should satisfy.
