Alma’s all growed up. Ari Taymor’s Venice pop-up-turned-Downtown-restaurant recently got a glowing review from Jonathan Gold, who noted that “nobody is cooking quite like this in L.A. at the moment,” while still slightly irked by its lack of a liquor license. Starting Thursday, the booze situation will be resolved, as Ari Taymor tells Grub Street, “We just got cleared to serve wine.” Starting February 7, Alma will offer a list of twelve natural wines and three local beers curated by the restaurant’s general manager, Ashleigh Parsons. The beer list is still being developed, while the wine list is a global mash-up of progressive wineries, including Domaine Sigalas Santorini by the glass and bottle, Alvarelhão from Lodi’s Silvaspoons, and 2011 Domaine Marcel Lapierre Morgo gamay from Burgundy. A $20 corkage fee remains for wines brought in from the outside. See Alma’s full new wine list below and find the restaurant serving vino and beer starting Thursday.
