Restaurateur Stephen Starr and Nuevo Latino superstar Chef Douglas Rodriguez pair up in this bold new venture with a Cuban Vibe. Enjoy delicious dishes infused with the sensuous flavors of Cuban cuisine in a vibrant atmosphere reminiscent of Old Havana.

"I brought two European colleagues with me to dinner at Alma. Neither had ever had Cuban food before. THe cocktails were wonderful, they have the best mojitos anyway. We started the meal with a ceviche tasting that we all shared. Each one of the 5 was better than the last. I could have eaten nothing but ceviche all night and been thoroughly satisfied. The Cuban sandwich-inspired appetizer was phenomenal - a very refined way to introduce the unique flavor profile. Our entrees were delicious and we shared the CUban cigar cake for dessert. My colleagues started thanking me for bringing them about 5 minutes into the first appetizer, and have not quit yet. Chef Garces is amazing and this will be my go-to dinner spot whenever I am in Philly."
