Bring the address with you—Alta is hidden a few steps below street level on a sleepy block of West Village brownstones. Once inside, ask for sangria. The bartender will fill an oversize goblet with ice, orange juice, a hefty shot of spiced rum and a topper of red wine. The bar is gleaming copper, the stools are padded leather, and the walls are lined with rounded river rocks and weathered brick. Among the many tapas available are salty marcona almonds and an intriguing combo of cauliflower, clams and chorizo.

Love this hidden tapas restaurant! Really interesting architecture - you feel like you're in Europe. Big range of options on the menu for drinks and food. If you've seen my other reviews, you know I'm a cucumber margarita girl all year round and their's was super spicy and delicious. Definitely come hungry and bring cash! They only accept cash or American Express cards. With drinks it's a little pricey but I personally think it's worth it.

Alta is an amazing tapas place in Greenwich Village. It's a really nice restaurant and good for a meal with friends, family, or for a date. They have a wide range of tapas and tapas categories, so it's fun for everyone to pick a few options and split. They do also have great sangria. The place has lots of different rooms, they even have a small room where you walk through the kitchen to get to you table, which is kind of cool. Highly recommend this place!!
