Mediterranean
Alta occupies a beautiful 19th century townhouse in the heart of Greenwich Village. Our main dining area has a soaring 27-foot ceiling, and dates back to the early part of the century. There is a warm welcoming feeling as soon as you step through the doors. In the winter, we have two wood burning fireplaces to keep you warm. In the summer, the doors are open and you feel as if you could be close to the Mediterranean.

We are a small plate restaurant, and in our food you can discover the influence of all the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea, which we consider to be a wonderful flavor palate. The small plates allow you to experience more of these flavors.

Larry Baldwin is our chef at Alta. Gifted with a discerning and creative approach to tastes and textures, he carefully selects all the ingredients to compose a menu full of delicious surprises.

Please note that Alta accepts only cash and American Express.
