Alimento is a contemporary restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere, operating in Los Angeles, California. After learning his trade in Italy, head chef Zach Pollack made his way through a succession of educational culinary experiences. He decided to channel his passion and expertise into his own enterprise and opened his restaurant in 2014. Since then, it has racked up numerous awards as an up-and-coming spot to watch for aspiring chefs. Heavily influenced by Italian methods, Zach has brought a taste of Europe to the Los Angeles food scene.
Alimento is trendy and minimalist in its design, boasting a modern aesthetic with clean-cut lines and a neutral color scheme. A few outdoor tables sit in view of floor-to-ceiling window panels, while ivy grows along the outside walls. The dining room features polished concrete flooring which shines in the abundant natural light. Towards the back of the restaurant, guests can share a drink and mingle at the bar.
Zach and his team are known for specializing in contemporary cuisine inspired by the delicacies of Italy. Alimento serves both brunch and dinner to visitors. Large groups are welcome to dine at the restaurant and the staff works tirelessly to ensure that their guests are satisfied. Patrons can explore their palate by pairing meals with wine that is available from the restaurant’s diverse list. Some of these lesser-known varieties are organic and produced by up-and-coming or local wineries, an operation that is in harmony with the establishment’s eco-friendly ideologies.
