Legal troubles and high operation costs put a grill during risk of shuttering this summer if fundraising goals aren’t met
#SaveAlmaRestaurant has been a rallying cry among L.A. foodies on Twitter ever given Alma launched a crowdfunding debate on IndieGogo dual days ago. The Downtown grill from Ari Taymor and Ashleigh Parsons is seeking for $40,000 to account ubiquitous operation costs along with a garden, ongoing village overdo programs, and (perhaps many pressing) a authorised invulnerability opposite a former partner who is suing Taymor and Parsons for rascal and unfair enrichment.
Alma’s financial troubles might come as a warn to some due to a implausible vicious success that a grill has enjoyed given opening in 2012. In further to being named one of Los Angeles magazine’s Top Ten Restaurants of 2012, it was also famous as Bon Appetite’s Best New Restaurant in America in 2013. More recently, Taymor was named Best New Chef by Food Wine in 2014 and warranted a assignment for this year’s James Beard Rising Star Award.
Still, vicious success doesn’t always volume to financial fortitude (see: Brilliantshine, Alumette, The Parish, etc.), and Alma’s matter on a crowdfunding site confirms that they are during risk of shuttering this summer if they do not lift adequate funds. However, with 43 days left to strech a goal, over half has already been pledged, so it’s looking good.
