Upscale Dining in Downtown Malden: All Seasons Table Restaurant & the Exchange Street Bistro

By Keith Spencer

MALDEN – Young professionals. Relaxing music. Ambient lighting. Modern decor. Not many expect such upscale dining in downtown Malden, but the All Seasons Table and the Exchange Street Bistro truly deliver fantastic cuisine in an upscale setting.

Both restaurants are located within the downtown district, steps from Malden Station and just a stone’s throw away from the site of the proposed 5,000 seat baseball stadium. The two establishments represent the promise and future of an emerging culinary community in the city.


The All Seasons Table Restaurant

The All Seasons Table Restaurant is in the heart of the downtown district on Pleasant Street. All Seasons Table offers a unique and exotic dining experience that caters to both the city’s large Asian population and an emerging young professional population that desire a close yet classy destination to dine.

With live jazz from Thursday evenings through Saturday, All Seasons Table Restaurant offers not only the environment but also the dishes to help anyone find their Zen. Choose from dozens of dishes from their elaborately crafted menu or choose from the restaurant’s full sushi bar to compliment your meal, and don’t forget to check out their extensive drink menu to compliment your meal.

In order to develop some of the finest tastes of Asia, owner Douglas Tran traveled the world in search of rare ingredients, authentic dishes, and the latest culinary trends. The result: perhaps the best pan-Asian cuisine available in the NoBo region.

All Seasons will also soon offer Sake & Wine Tasting as well as Asian tapas. Recently, the restaurant renovated their dining room and opened a lounge and sushi bar.

All Seasons Table Restaurant is located at 64 Pleasant St. Malden Ma 02148. Click here for directions or click here for reservations. To view the All Seasons Table Restaurant menu, please click here.

From its affordable flatbreads to its daily specials and bistro classics, the menu offers some of the finest culinary cuisine available in the NoBo region. Their extensive martini menu that features more than 100 drinks and 60 wines, a perfect accompaniment for every dish, occasion, or season.

Wake up to an omelet with a double espresso when you visit for Sunday morning brunch, or stop in on Wednesday evenings for live jazz and blues to accompany your evening cocktail and meal.

After nearly five years of service, Exchange Street Bistro has become a staple for young professionals, couples, and those residents looking to experience something different in Malden’s culinary cuisine.

Just a few blocks from the 160 Pleasant Street luxury apartments, the Exchange Street Bistro adds to the fun and exciting lifestyle developing in the heart of Malden.
