Alma de Cuba is our favorite restaurant in the city, if not the East Coast. My wife and I ate here on our wedding night (we were staying at the Rittenhouse Hotel before flying out of PHL), our first anniversary and just when we want a fabulous evening in the city. Every time we have friends or family visiting, we take them to Alma and they have never (ever) been disappointed. We visited again last night and loved every minute of it. The only complaint people have is that everything on the menu looks fantastic and it is hard to make the decision. Everything from the Mojito's to the Chocolate Tres Leches cake is fantastic. The Smoked Marlin Tacos are probably my favorite though and the little bread balls they serve are unbelievable. Generally, I painstakingly decide on an entree (because everything looks good), but then I hear the specials and cannot resist. I had the Hawaiian Butterfish special last night and like always, it was fantastic. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Philadelphia. It can get a little noisy at times, both with people talking and the great music playing, but its part of the atmosphere...just don't go expecting a quiet evening.
