It's chilly out, and you should have a drink -- and a phattie bowl of melted cheese --- to warm you up. Here are some of the highlights over at Josef Centeno's new restaurant Bar Amá, which is just a stone's throw away from another one of our favorite Downtown L.A. haunts, Baco Mercat.

Our friend Bill Esparza recently pointed out their unique selection of sotol and bacanora spirits. (Bacanora is a type of mezcal made from the wild Yaquiano agaves that grow in the northern Mexican state of Sonora. Sotol is the drink of the state of Chihuahua, distilled from a different kind of agave known as the Desert Spoon.) But those bottles aren't the only reason to head over, as you'll see here. Click on, then clock out.
