Ari Taymor Resurrects Alma for Three-Month Pop-Up at The Standard, Hollywood

It has been a roller coaster ride for Ari Taymor's now shuttered restaurant.

The final days of Ari Taymor's Alma were rocky, to say the least, but the LA Times confirms today that the restaurant will return as a three-month pop-up inside the Standard Hotel, Hollywood. Despite a nasty lawsuit and a successful crowdfunding campaign, Bon Appetit's best new restaurant of 2013 came to a sad shutter on October 24.

The chef hinted before the restaurant's untimely closure that it could live on as a pop-up, and now it seems as if the ride isn't completely over. Beginning next Tuesday, December 8, Taymor, along with partner Ashleigh Parsons, will take over the in-house restaurant in the Sunset Boulevard hotel, offering some of the same dishes that skyrocketed Taymor to culinary fame.

Unlike the original Downtown restaurant though, the Standard pop-up will offer only a la carte selections as opposed to a tasting menu, completing the restaurant's trajectory to becoming more accessible to all.

It's a fitting end for the restaurant that originally started as a pop-up, and a nice way to get one last taste of Alma's signature dishes like hay-roasted potato with goat's milk and lovage.

The Alma residency will run from December 8 through the end of February, Sunday to Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to midnight.
