This is a fairly unique restaurant in L.A. - a la carte offerings from Alma - but in in very fresh, well designed diner. In a cool hotel (how cool? there’s a live woman in a bikini in a beach display behind the front desk). My date was ecstatic about it - the setting, the design (she’s a designer), the sophisticated food. I thought it was quite good (and if you order right, not diner cheap). But still, we shared 7 dishes and got a “7 course” meals for 145 bucks.
Open fairly late too.
