In Praise of Restaurant Alma
Judy and I celebrated our 18th anniversary last night with dinner at Restaurant Alma by the U of M campus. This place knocked our socks off. It's small and casual, which is a very interesting juxtaposition to the extraordinary food. It recently won an award for Best Chef: Midwest from the prestigious James Beard Foundation.
It was recommended by my friend Scott Miller and I can't believe I did not get to it sooner (it's been open for 11 years). Dinner was $48 per person and we got to select the items for the 3 courses (http://www.restaurantalma.com/menu.aspx). The wine list was incredible for a restaurant this small and very reasonably priced. If you appreciate good food made from the finest local and organic sources, you absolutely must go here.
