Alma Cocina says they will open on December 6 in Downtown’s One Ninety One Building, serving a contemporary Mexican menu infused with the many flavors of Latin America. The restaurant will also have a unique bar program centering around drinks complemented by infused ice cubes (think exotic flavors like prickly pear and maple-caramel). The restaurant will serve lunch and dinner daily. It will be interesting to see if that location - which will benefit at lunch from the neighboring office buildings - can draw a consistent dinner crowd in the sometimes desolate Downtown neighborhood (hey, the area was picked as the set of The Walking Dead for a reason).
