Eat and drink enough at Alma and you'll earn a virtual master's degree in contemporary food and wine. Chef Alex Roberts, a veteran of such white-hot New York City kitchens as Bouley, Union Square Café, and the Gramercy Tavern, builds dishes around strong flavors, painstaking prep work, and classic French technique. A typical result is the Portuguese-style stew crowned with perfectly tender in-the-shell clams, buttery squares of roast chicken, and slices of zippy chorizo, all tied together with a delectable, garlic-flecked tomato broth holding bland but necessary white beans.
