About Us


Alma started as a pop-up concept by co-owners Ari Taymor and Ashleigh Parsons, which eventually found its home in downtown Los Angeles in the summer of 2012. Our menu is inspired by the landscape and terroir of Southern California, and the ingredients we use are sourced from local farmers and from Alma’s garden in Venice, CA.


We offer our seasonal, 9-course tasting menu every night for $110, with an optional beverage pairing for an additional $55. Tuesday through Thursday we also offer a 3-course Market Menu for $50, with an optional $25 pairing as well. As with the cuisine, Alma’s beer and wine lists consist of small producers that are farming organically and honing their craft using traditional methods.


Our menu changes often and is based on what we are growing and what is available to us from local and regional producers. We invite you to join us in exploring the outstanding quality of game and produce that California has to offer.
