Alma, the award-winning and beloved, yet recently closed downtown Los Angeles dining hotspot, will return for a three-month residency starting next week.

Beginning on Dec. 8, chef Ari Taymor and his partner Ashleigh Parsons will bring Alma's celebrated market-driven and beautifully plated dishes to the Standard Hollywood in West Hollywood, reports the L.A. Times. The three-month residency will offer fans and newcomers a chance to enjoy Alma's signature plates—including hay-roasted potato with goat's milk and lovage and frozen duck liver with granola and carrots—along with some new twists. And unlike the prix fixe tasting menu of the restaurant's previous incarnation, this time around the farm-to-table meals will be served a la carte. "Our goal is to be accessible," Taymor tells the Times.

The young chef says he will be bringing his Alma team from both the front and back of house to the trendy hotel on Sunset Boulevard. But there's no word yet about plans for a permanent home for Alma once the residency is over, though Taymor says they're open to the idea of a new restaurant.

Alma's residency at the Standard Hollywood will run seven days a week from Dec. 8 through February, serving Sunday to Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.; and Friday and Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to midnight.

"The food will be very much Alma," Taymor told the Times. "We're stoked to be able to cook again."
The Standard Hollywood is located at 8300 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood, (323) 822-3131.
