Exclusive Video Sneak Peek With Alma’s Executive Chef Michael Brown

This morning, I sat down with Alma‘s Executive Chef Michael Brown to talk about everything from our favorite LA restaurants (Wurstküche, anyone?) to the power outage that’s had him up all night to Alma’s take on elevated regional Mexican food. Watch the video below to learn more about the LA recruit (profiled earlier here) and get some hints about the new menu which will include spit-roasted whole pig. Brown is a great guy (with some undeniably awesome tatts); we think he’s going to fit right in here. (And please cut him some slack on the LA/Dallas flub—the poor guy’s been up for the last 24 hours tending to a middle-of-the-night power outage.)

While the video loads, click here to check out a sneak-peek photo gallery of Alma’s second-hand-chic interiors as they come together…

Clockwise from top left: Alma's boho Mexi-chic lounge; Executive Chef Michael brown; the upstairs bar; consignment accents make the restaurant feel like home; save me a spot on that couch; trust me when I say that the skulls scattered around the joint are more grounding than creepy.

  1. Looks like Henderson Avenue is fast becoming THE dining strip in Dallas. That’s a good thing! The valet parking? That’s the worst thing!
