Alta - Alert : Best Bites in the Village

I've been several times (since it's my hood) but last Friday sampled the whole menu.

Dishes are small so the number may not be so surprising but five of us had 17 dishes (only $166 incl a bottle of wine and some drinks; now that's very fair) served sequentially. And what is astonishing is that every one, from the roasted cauliflower with raisins and manila clams in Sherry vinegar to the small plate of lamb meatballs was memorable.

Harrison I-forget-his-last-name was at WD50 but he's the finer chef and the resume gives you an idea of his creative edge.
