The largest draw for the out-of-the-way Red Hook restaurant Alma is the impressive views of the city from their large, often crowded open rooftop. But even when the view is obscured by the dark clouds this crazy summer system weather has been bringing our way, there's still much to recommend about this casual Mexican eatery.
The staff was very accommodating and gracious to our large party and laid on the sauce for a rather tearful goodbye to a dear coworker moving on to LA. Both margaritas (which I throughly enjoyed) and Sangria pitchers moved freely around the tables between varied small dishes like ceviche, tacquitos, and steak nachos fresca with the tangy guacamole and cheese tamales standing out as the most memorable and yummy.
But what do you think?
