Dining a la carte at Restaurant Alma is all well and good, but those who take the kitchen’s suggestion and go the three-course dinner route will not be disappointed. Chef/owner Alex Roberts offers five hyper-seasonal selections across three courses — salads and other starters, a selection of pastas and grains and then entree-sized portions of meat, fish or poultry — for $52 per person. With four at the table — and five choices in each of those three categories — diners who share their plates will get a taste of 80 percent of the menu in a single seating. 528 University Av. SE., Mpls.; 612-379-4909;
