Molly Spillane (sp?) Mamaroneck
Does anyone know anything about the place? It's on Mamaroneck Avenue in Mamaroneck. I think it's in the space the Den of Antiquity used to be? It's on the corner of Prospect and Mamaroneck. It looks like a pub but it's enormous. It looks like a lot of money has been put into it, but I have no idea when it's going to open or even what it's going to serve.
I just drove by it this morning too. It looks very pretty with iron work faux balconies on the second floor. I agree that it looked very pub-like. A nice addition to that part of the avenue and hey, they are probably not another place serving Asian fusion food.
Me bad-saw something about this the other week in LoHud and just forgot to post it here:
Coming Soon: Molly Spillane’s in Mamaroneck
Stephen Carty, the owner of Mickey Spillane’s in Eastchester, is opening a 9,000 square foot sister restaurant called Molly Spillane’s one block from the harbor in Mamaroneck on April 17. It’s at 211 Mamaroneck Ave., a former office space that he’s completely converted it to be a bar-restaurants not unlike Mickey Spillane’s — with steaks, seafood and pastas, private rooms and a comfortable bar.
One major difference? A patio that seats 80 and has a 12-foot-square outdoor fireplace! That’ll help push the season when it comes to al fresco dining! The company that built it, El Dorado Stone, thinks it’s so beautiful, they’re coming to take a photo of it for their national brochure. I’ll try to get there with my own camera this week. Meantime, here’s the Molly Spillane’s web site.
I have been watching with interest as this place has slowly started to go up.
On one hand, it will be nice to have a casual pub in the neighborhood. It's a break from all of the Asian. I'd like to be able to just get a burger and a fruity drink for dinner.
However, as a resident of the neighborhood, the outdoor patio scares me. I live just a block down from the place and I fear that I will be hearing the noise of 80 people sitting out on that patio from my apartment.
Considering the economy and the high cost of rent on Mamaroneck Ave., I'd be very curious to see how this place does. They obviously put an enormous amount of money into this place. The totally gutted the old law office that was there previously and started totally from scratch. This was an expensive undertaking. If the restaurant is good and doesn't disturb my sleep on weekends, then I hope it works out. (Of course if it stinks and it's noisy, I hope it goes under ASAP).
Jon hit it right on the head. A lot of love and money went into this place and by the looks of it, it will do that much better than it's sister restaurant Mickeys in Eastchester. Check out the website, the outdoor patio has a fireplace and it's going to be a great place to grab a burger or salad or some drinks! I can't wait! Grand opening is April 17!
It seems to be something we need in this area. I checked out Mickey Spillane's website and the menu, if going to be the same, was decently priced and interesting enough for a weeknight dinner and a regular, casual place to hang out.
My only pre-opening concern however is the wine list. There isn't a decent glass or bottle anywhere on that list. I really hope that the owners will realize that there are enough wine drinkers in this neighborhood to justify serving at least a few drinkable options.
The door was open this morning so I walked in to check out the main level. The huge four-sided hardwood bar is awesome. Looks like serious stimulus money was put into this place!
