Another day, another restaurant at The Grove trying to make the massive, two-story space next to the parking lot elevators work. The latest contender is Alma, a fancy Mexican restaurant run by a successful Mexico City restaurant group. Based on pedigree alone, we were relatively excited to try this place, but ultimately, it’s another overpriced spot catering to The Grove’s main audience: tourists. We haven’t eaten anything here that’s truly bad, but nothing is memorable, either. And considering the price level (two tacos for $25), that’s not ideal. The free chips and salsa are surprisingly good, however, and the bartenders will pour you a well-made margarita, so we recommend using this place to grab a drink and snack before a movie at the AMC.

El Coyote

El Coyote is an LA institution and one of the most objectively fun places to eat in the city - even if the food leaves a bit to be desired.

Slab is a very good barbecue spot on West 3rd in Beverly Grove.
