After a week-long shutter, East Village Filipino favorite Maharlika reopened recently. It's still unclear whether <a href="http://ny.eater.com/2014/12/6/7344817/maharlika-filipino-moderno-has-closed-up-shop-in-the-east-village">the hiatus was brought on by the department of health</a> (as one sign on the door said) or "building complications" (as another sign on the door said).
During the break, the team painted and changed up the menu quite a bit, but all of the favorites are still there, says one host. New additions include a Filipino goat stew and a chicken and coconut milk dish.
