The Can Company, announces the 3,900 square foot lease of a new restaurant, Alma Cocina Latina, at the historic Canton destination.
Cross Street Partners will handle construction for the 90-seat restaurant, the fourth project of long-time Baltimore restaurateur Irena Stein, owner of existing restaurants Azafran and Alkimia, both located on the JohnsHopkins University campus. Construction begins this month on The Can Company restaurant, with the opening of Alma scheduled for spring 2015.
Alma will explore Venezuelan and other Latin specialties with a menu of small plates served in a modern, visually captivating space with a partially open kitchen. Central and South American spirits, along with an inventive artisanal cocktail menu and a carefully selected wine and beer list, will be offered from a 26-foot bar. New floor-to-ceiling glass panels will replace the existing brick store front and open the interior space to an expanded, redesigned outdoor patio dining room.

“I could not be happier,” says Alma owner, Irena Stein, “to be able to open at The Can Company and to use its dynamic urban setting to introduce local residents to new flavors and ingredients from a region that has had little presence in the City of Baltimore until now.”
Adds Stein: “Venezuelan food is easy to love by everyone and by all ages, as it is a comfort food par excellence.”
Also opening at The Can Company in early 2015 is a new, 1,378 square foot location of Nalley Fresh, the innovation of local Chef Greg Nalley. Nalley Fresh, which offers imaginative bowls, salads, and wraps, allows customers to customize their orders using a wide variety of fresh and seasonal ingredients.
