Alma, which won Best New Restaurant in America by Bon Appetit in 2013, switched over from an a la carte service to a tasting menu format earlier this year. The $95 menu effectively eliminated the $65 option, offering a singular experience for diners.
Yesterday owners Ashleigh Parsons and Ari Taymor announced a new $50 market menu on Instagram, which spans three courses and runs Tuesday to Thursdays at the Downtown restaurant. They're also encouraging walk-ins in addition to reservations, which definitely makes Alma a more approachable kind of restaurant instead of the more exclusive (and pricier) tasting menu format.
Another bonus for diners: teen phenom Flynn McGarry has been a regular on the line at Alma, in case anyone wants a peek at the precocious chef's cooking.
