Alma Cocina Menu

Hours: Lunch: Mon.-Sun., 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Dinner: Sun.-Thurs., 5-10 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 5-11 p.m.

Entrées: $18-$28. Full bar. Validated lot parking in the 191 Peachtree lot (entrance on Ellis Street).

Alma Cocina is Fifth Group's second Mexican concept, the other being the Original El Taco in Virginia-Highland. But where El Taco aims to please neighborhood folks looking for mid-priced Tex-Mex and margaritas by the pitcher, Alma Cocina is more geared toward the expense accounters. Subtle tweaks across Alma's menu make it succeed — pomegranate seeds paired with braised lamb, or crispy Cotija cheese that provides a tangy base for a fried avocado taquito. While Alma does suffer from some of the pitfalls of "modern Mexican," it also gets a lot right, taking traditional dishes and refining them just enough to allow you to taste them afresh.
