Maharlika Filipino Moderno opened it's doors as a pop-up restaurant in the winter of 2011. A neighborhood type restaurant, its name means "Royalty" in Tagalog. The word Maha and Leeka translates to "Noble Work" in Sanskrit. Some Asian historians argue Maharlika is the original name of the 7,107 islands that comprise the Philippines. The name was handpicked as an homage to the life, times and food of the Global Pinoy.
With images of 1973 Miss Universe, Jeepney's, family portraits, and a giant wooden fork + spoon displayed prominently, Maharlika is a place where the Philippine's pop culture and everyday life's musings are honored. The family envisioned a space where Filipino's hospitality and food is a thoughtful showpiece and not an afterthought. The Restaurant, located in downtown Manhattan, is home to local and visiting Pinoys and our friends, who look for comforting and caring Filipino food + service + style.
