By Shivani Patel, The Malibu Times

Malibuites will soon have a new drink destination at cocktail chef Matthew Biancaniello’s Mon Li, located at Calamigos Beach Club.

According to Biancaniello’s website, Mon Li will boast a “12 person, 12 course liquid tasting menu” with views of the ocean. The experience is designed to be reminiscent of the Mediterranean.

In about two hours, patrons can sample 12 liquid tastings along with five food courses, with ingredients from the farmers market, Santa Monica Mountains and an in-house garden.

The restaurant is named after Calamigos Beach Club owner Glen Gerson’s wife, Mon-Li.

The cocktail chef is well-known for his bartending work at Los Angeles-based places like the Library Bar, Plan Check and Commissary.

The restaurant will host two separate seatings on Thursdays-Saturdays, per Food & Wine. Prices will set visitors back at least $125-$175.

According to social media, Biancaniello is looking to open toward the end of September.
