Alma Cafe Set to Offer Dinner Service This Fall

NEW ORLEANSAlma Cafe, New Orleans’ favorite Honduran restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and brunch, has announced that the restaurant will officially launch dinner service this fall. In preparation for the launch, Chef/Owner Melissa Araujo – a James Beard: Best Chef South 2024 semifinalist – will host a limited number of exclusive dinner previews each Friday from Friday, July 26 – Friday, Sept. 13. Reservations are suggested, with the first seating at 5 p.m., and the last at 9:45 p.m.

“We’ve been asked for quite some time when we will offer dinner and are thrilled to launch this fall,” said Chef Araujo. “Our Friday dinner previews will provide a sneak peek into what we have in store. Dinner was a hit in the past and we hope it will strike a chord with our loyal customers and give those who haven’t tried Alma Cafe a great reason to do so.”

The dinner preview nights will feature a curated selection of dishes that blend traditional flavors with a modern twist. Using ingredients from her own backyard, guests can indulge in dishes such as Aguachile Negro with local gulf shrimp and scallops in an aguachile negro; Tostada de Tuna — yellowfin tuna, avocado pure, caramelized shallots, and jalapeno; Pork belly with pickled vegetables; New England Style Lobster Roll; Duck in salsa verde; Papas BravasHongos en Crema; and BBQ Pork Ribs with fine herbs. Like everything at Alma Cafe, dinner dishes will honor the chef’s beloved grandmother’s cooking, a bevy of robust, hearty dishes inspired by the chef’s childhood.

The inventive cocktail menu from Head Bartender Mark Preston will also be available. Satisfy your palate with libations like the Smoke Rosemary Negroni Sour (gin, sweet vermouth, Campari, rosemary syrup, lemon juice, splash of orange juice, and egg white); Hello Again(mezcal, Ancho Reyes chile liqueur, watermelon, and lime); Paloma No. 2 (tequila blanco, grapefruit, lime, honey, salt air); and Pimm’s Cup(Pimm’s No. 1, cucumber vodka, lemon, ginger ale, and sparkling wine float).

Located at 800 Louisa St., Alma Café has become a beloved spot for authentic Honduran cuisine. The addition of dinner service marks a new chapter, inviting guests to experience the restaurant’s welcoming ambiance and exceptional cuisine during the evening hours.

Reservations can be made on OpenTable. Stay up to date on all things Alma Cafe on social at @eatalmanola.
