Drove by the other night and noticed that it's finally open. I couldn't read the name, but it's three stories tall and looks pentagonal. Can it possibly be a single restaurant? There were lots of cars out front, but I don't know how a place that big can sustain, especially because I heard it was upscale. I'm very curious. Anyone have any intell.?

    1. I havent heard anything good about Alto Plaza. Especially the 'upscale' third floor. Such a shame, it has the best mountain view from the west balcony tables. Parking is a problem too.

      1. check out Tom Setsima's review in the W. Post magazine, first time I have ever seen a no star review...

        1. Sietsema killed this place. I wouldn't go there at gunpoint.

          1. I drove by the other day and thought it said "autoplaza" and was some sort of upscale snobby car place!

            1. I looked at the site (why did I bother after the Sunday review?) and looked at the menu.

              EVERY BLEEDIN' PAGE ends with 'no substitutions please'. Speaks of a certain attitude.

              1. not a Spanish speaker, but isn't the correct gender ending Alt_a_ Plaza?

                we're not discussing clarinets after all.
