Alta Restaurant Review

: This stylish West Village restaurant specializes in Mediterranean fare, with an emphasis on small plates --- 40-plus options in all. Standouts include the crispy Brussels sprouts served with crème fraîche, Granny Smith apples and pistachios; tender wok-seared calamari spiced with jalapeños and garlic chips; and fried goat cheese balls with a lavender-infused honey sauce. On the more substantive side is the squid ink paella of shellfish, chorizo and preserved lemon balanced with a warm vegetable salad and Tunisian spice roasted beets. An extensive Mediterranean-focused wine list; a creative cocktail menu; and an even more inventive dessert selection including crema Catalana and trifle cake composed with raspberry pudding, spiced chocolate gelato and a hazelnut crumble are also offered.
