After reading an article in the Times, I wanted to try Alto while I was in New York on business. Wonderful dinner. NYC is absolutely the undisputed heavy weight of restaurant towns. Four Course Prefix: Puree of Wild Mushrooms Soup (fantastic flavor and presentation), Sea Scallops with Citrus Oil (the orange flavor was a perfect pairing), Rack of Lamb (two, double cut, massive loin chops). The front of the house was just as impressive as the back. The interior was beautiful and the service was immaculate.
