A journey of Chef Dale Talde’s past projects…
Locations: Brooklyn, Jersey City, Miami
Talde was the namesake restaurant of Chef Dale Talde. The first location debuted in Brooklyn in 2012, with Jersey City following in 2014, and Miami in late 2015. Here, the menu featured creative Asian-American cuisine that had been playfully dubbed “in-authentically Asian,” with a beverage menu of East-meets-West spirits, featuring seasonally-inspired cocktails. Signature dishes included Pretzel Pork and Chive Dumplings; Crispy Oyster-Bacon Pad Thai; and Korean Fried Chicken with Spicy Kimchi Yogurt, Grapes and Mint.
Rice & Gold
Located on the ground floor of Hotel 50 Bowery, Rice & Gold featured Asian American fare. The menu also took cues from cuisines around the globe, showcasing the diversity and vibrancy of our modern day country and the many immigrants who have settled here and now call America home. Evident were influences from China and the Philippines, as well as Mexico, Bangladesh, Iran, Jamaica, India and more. The restaurant, from Chef Dale Talde, served breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner. The space featured an 11-seat bar and a 180-seat dining room, as well as a custom graffiti art installation designed by local artist, Mr. Ewok One. The restaurant also featured a robust bar program, including cocktails, wine, beer and sake.
Chef Dale Talde made his first foray into Manhattan with three unique concepts inside the Arlo Nomad Hotel: Massoni, a full-service restaurant that served “Inauthentic Italian” fare; BARlo, the 2nd floor bar and adjoining terrace; and The Heights, a seasonal rooftop bar and patio. At Massoni, diners had the option of breakfast, lunch or dinner, and were able to sample Chef Dale Talde’s “Inauthentic Italian” cuisine, featuring classic Italian dishes with multi-cultural flavors and ingredients. Think Arancini Balls but with biryrani-style rice, served with cool ranch raita and spicy tomato; and Malfalde with uni, serrano and smoked onion dashi. The cocktail program at Massoni was rooted in the classic cocktails of New York City. Like the food, the influence of Italian-American culinary traditions and flavors found their way into updated classics. The drinks took their names from the last stops of the different subway lines that run throughout the city. Massoni also offered an entirely Italian-focused wine program, consisting of about 15 white and 20-25 red. The offerings spanned all of Italy from traditional to small vineyards. On the beer front, both Italian and craft domestic brews were available.
Grandview Public Market
Dale's vendors: The Corner, Clare's, Little Red Truck
Grandview Public Market is a culinary experience located within the newly developed Warehouse District in West Palm Beach. Grandview Public is comprised of 14 individual vendors providing unique experiences in shopping and casual dining. Chef Dale Talde developed the three concepts: The Corner, Clare’s and The Little Red Truck.
Bars & Nightlife
Located on the 21st floor of Hotel 50 Bowery sat The Crown, a rooftop bar & lounge from Chef Dale Talde. Commanding some of the only sweeping views of downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn, and even the far off silhouettes of Queens and New Jersey, from Chinatown, The Crown offered guests two different outdoor terraces and multiple vantage points to take it all in. A variety of Asian-inspired cocktails and a small menu of rotating globally-inspired small bites complemented the expansive views, while the large copper-accented indoor lounge offered respite from the sun and weather. The Crown was truly a unique addition to the Chinatown neighborhood, and was inspired by its rich history.
The Heights was a rooftop bar, located at the top of the Arlo NoMad Hotel, from Chef Dale Talde. With expansive views of the city, including the best view in Manhattan of the Empire State Building, The Heights offered guests the ideal place to grab a drink, hang out with friends, enjoy a slice of pizza, and take it all in.
