Alta had an extensive wine list with a wide variety of prices, so we really relied on our waiter for a recommendation. When I do this, I always worry about the price range I give because I assume they will go as high as possible. Instead, our server actually recommended a bottle in the lower price point (the bottom, actually)! With that we started our first bottle of the evening!
|One a few bottles of wine!|
While I attempted to get pictures of everything, I missed out on a few items.
|Bacon Wrapped Dates & Olives stuffed with almonds.|
|Fried Goat Cheese with lavender infused honey|
|Sweet Potato Ravioli with brown butter, hazelnuts, aleppo pepper and sage emulsion|
|Crispy Brussels Sprouts with fuji apples, crème fraiche and pistachio nuts|
|Bruschetta of Spinach & Mascarpone, dried Turkish figs, pine nuts, parmesan & balsamic|
|Seared Sea Scallops with parsley root puree, apple cider "caviar", chorizo oil and black olives|
|Pulled Pork Empanadas with sweet spicy cilantro dipping sauce|
|Braised Short Rib of Beef Beet-Barbaresco taglierini and fresh grated horseradish|
As you can see, I loved basically everything about this restaurant. It was a fantastic meal and great company. It was a lot of fun to be able to try a bunch of smaller dishes while enjoying a nice bottle of wine.
The server was relatively nice about letting us sit. It was not until we finally started tapering off the food ordering and were ready to move on did they start trying to get us to move. At that point we needed the push!
I would highly recommend going to Alta for a great dinner.
