Alta is the anti-tapas bar. Yes, its menu consists entirely of small plates, priced from $3 to $15, and yes, many of them—like salty serrano and roasted pineapple—taste and sound Spanish enough. But chef Harrison Mosher’s elegant, offbeat presentations come off more haute tasting menu than run-of-the-mill Madrid. Neighbors drop by the long, welcoming bar for extemporaneous goat-cheese fritters and lavender honey, or a glass of wine from a carefully curated old-world list. The rustic double-height dining room feels like a South American hacienda, and there’s an intimate upstairs alcove that you reach by walking through the kitchen.Note
On Friday and Saturday nights, when Alta is open until 1 a.m., they offer a late-night menu.
