Africans profoundly contributed to the culture and cuisine of a number of countries in Latin America. Alma pays homage to those contributions by offering creative dishes from Latin American countries, with an emphasis on African-influenced items. A first of its kind in Pittsburgh, Alma meets the demand of the varied and growing tastes of Pittsburghers who desire to dine at an array of restaurants serving food from various countries and cultures throughout the world. The restaurant creates an entirely unique experience by providing an authentic atmosphere which captures the cultural mix present throughout the Pan-Latin diaspora. Aside from the food itself, Pan-Latin culture is incorporated into the restaurant through music and artwork. When feasible, Alma sources local and sustainable produce, meat, and seafood.
