Owned by the husband/wife team Sean and Kelly Weinberg, Malvern’s Restaurant Alba has undergone an expansion that features a cozy bar area with banquet seating and a small-plates menu. The new full-service bar was inspired by the traditional Aperitivo bars of Northern Italy, where you can get a predinner drink to whet your appetite. At Alba, complimentary small bites are served 4:30-6:30 p.m. on weekdays to enjoy with your cocktail, wine or beer. It’s a perfect way to celebrate Alba’s sixth anniversary. 7 W. King St., Malvern; (610) 644-4009, restaurantalba.com.
