Deciding on where to eat can be tough in a city as full of great spots as ours. That’s why, every Tuesday we’re making the call, and giving you the inside scoop. This week’s Great Call is Alma Cocina.
When You’re Going
If you live or work Downtown, you have to check out the ‘five5four’ happy hour. From 4-6, choose from five different $5 drinks and nibbles. Sip on a variety of margaritas, wine and draft beer while snacking on Carnitas Taquitos or Green Chorizo Tostadas.
Where You’re Sitting
Located in the 191 building on Peachtree, Alma is situated in the stunning lobby. So, if you’re headed there for happy hour, grab a table on their ‘patio’ that looks out into the building. Sip on your margarita as you watch accountants from Deloitte scrambling about.
What’s in Your Glass
Never underestimate the power of a great ice cube. Recently Alma premiered Tequila Cubes on their drink menu. Try the Plata, which pairs 2010 Single Estate Tequila Ocho, “Los Corrales” with seasoned coconut water and fresh pineapple ice cube or the Reposado that pairs FGR Herradura “Double Reposado” with Granny Smith apple and jalapeno ice cube.
What’s On Your Plate
It may seem like low hanging fruit to rave about the guacamole at a Mexican restaurant, and a bit strange at one that embraces upper scale and traditional Mexican cuisine. However, the guacamole at Alma Cocina has everything it needs to elevate it; freshness and innovation. Every season, the topping of the guacamole changes and this is what sets it apart. Roasted butternut squash in the Fall, and crisp corn and chipotles in the Summer, all makes an appearance. And no judging if it becomes a daily indulgence.
