After shuttering his wood fire-focused restaurant Mas (la grillade) in August, Galen Zamarra opens its replacement, Almanac tonight in a refreshed space on South 7th Avenue. The changeover comes at least in part because they neighbors were complaining about all that grilling, so don't expect much woodsmoke at this new iteration. Now there's more of a farmhouse vibe to the place now, with exposed stones, weathered wood lining some of the walls, and a few small plants hanging around the bar shelves. The menus, which offer three different tasting options ($75, $95, $145) are really seasonal. They will change daily and (bonus!) list the phases of the moon for that month at the bottom. The debut menu includes items like acorn squash with lamb bacon, cilantro pesto, smoked blue cheese, and takana greens; and roasted oysters with leeks and pear parsnip foam. The restaurant is taking reservations via OpenTable and still has seats open for tonight.
