Galen Zamarra gave the old Mas (la grillade) space a refresher before opening his super-duper seasonal restaurant Almanac last month. This time around, the space has a sort of Colorado ski lodge feeling to it, with exposed stones, a large metal chandelier, heavy wood beams, and red banquettes snaking around the perimeter. Tree branches are visible through the restaurant's large skylight and there are a couple of cave-like nooks to be found in the space for intimate date-night tables. But nothing's too private. Many of the tables have large mirrors behind them, a la Dirty French.
The "micro-seasonal" menu at Almanac (as Zamarra's team calls it) changes ever so slightly daily, but offerings come in the form of either a three, five, or eight-course tasting menu (for $75, $95, $145). The team also sends word that Zamarra plans to launch a bar menu soon, but in the meantime, check out the most recent dinner menu below and take a look around.
