Opened in spring 2017, this casual sister to Cosme serves inspired Mexican cuisine with a focus on local ingredients, organic vegetables and simple preparations. Open from early in the morning until late at night, Alta serves up guacamole and goat cheese molettes and flax seed chilaquiles for breakfast and, later on, chicken enchiladas, arctic char tostadas and fish Milanese with cucumber ceviche. An extensive cocktail and mezcal menu lists concoctions like the overproof margarita and an Oaxacan coffee cocktail. The sleek eatery occupies an glass-enclosed space on a Noho corner and draws a convivial crowd at all hours.
