Local in Silver Lake gets beer and wine license, will begin serving next week
On Wednesday, Jason Michaud's Silver Lake restaurant Local got its long-awaited beer-and-wine license. The restaurant will begin serving on Monday. In keeping with the strict local-only mandate for his restaurant, Michaud will carry beer from Eagle Rock Brewing Company, as well as from Pasadena's Craftsman Brewing Company.
Right now he plans to carry about half a dozen California red wines, all small-batch biodynamic and organic.
Can you still bring your own wine? Sure. But if it happens to be from France, the corkage fee will be $20. "If you wanna do it, I'm going to punish you," says Michaud playfully.
