According to Wikipedia, The Twelve Grapes (Las doce uvas de la suerte) is a Spanish custom that dates as far back as 1895. The tradition consists of eating a grape with each bell strike at midnight on December 31, leading to a year of good fortune, health and prosperity.
If the legend holds true, you should make plans now to dine with us at Alma Cocina this New Year’s when Executive Chef Chad Clevenger will be serving a special homage to this quaint tradition: a delicious seafood pozole with fresh shrimp, clams, mussels, bacalao, radish, cilantro, rich red chile broth and, of course, 12 perfectly smoked grapes. Even though we close at 11pm that night, it couldn’t hurt to give it a try, right?
We’re located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, conveniently located within walking distance of all the major hotels and the Peach Drop, the largest New Year’s Eve celebration in the Southeast. Validated parking when you dine with us is available in One Ninety One Peachtree Tower, as well.
