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.
