Alma: Cafe, Hotel and Restaurant

Eat and drink enough at Restaurant Alma and you'll earn a virtual master's degree in contemporary food and wine. Chef Alex Roberts, a veteran of such white-hot New York City kitchens as Bouley, Union Square Café, and the Gramercy Tavern, builds dishes around strong flavors, painstaking prep work, and classic French technique. A typical result is the Portuguese-style stew crowned with perfectly tender in-the-shell clams, buttery squares of roast chicken, and slices of zippy chorizo, all tied together with a delectable, garlic-flecked tomato broth holding bland but necessary white beans. The 2016 addition of Cafe Alma offers a more relaxed dining experience, a place to grab a quick breakfast, a tartine for lunch, a Bittercube cocktail after work, or a sensible dinner. Also added in 2016 is the hotel portion of the Alma empire: Seven charming sleeping rooms located just above the cafe and restaurant.
