Ari Taymor just recently launched his spring menu at Alma, and the tasting menu option is now priced at $110 per person. Last year, Taymor reduced the choices of tasting menus to just a single $95 option, whereas previously diners could choose between a $65 and $110 menu.

The full tasting menu again now runs $110 again, a $15 and 15.7% price hike, which isn't too significant considering the total number of dishes. Diners now receive 8 full courses, plus "snacks" at the start of the meal, plus petit fours. Wine pairings still run $55.

The mid-week market menu, which runs Tuesday to Thursday, is still a very reasonably priced $50 per person ($25 for wine pairings), but comprises just four courses. Eater critic and data lead Ryan Sutton helped put together the following infographic to see how the new prices compare, with tips and taxes built in:

Taymor had recently been nominated as a Rising Star chef by the James Beard Awards, but lost out to Manresa's Jessica Largey.
