Nordic fla­vors on Mel­rose

Los Angeles Times - - FOOD & DINING - jenn.har­ris@la­times.com In­sta­gram: @Jen­n_Har­ris_

Chef and restau­ra­teur Chris­ter Lars­son, known for his cook­ing at Aqua­vit and Alta in New York City, is bring­ing his new Nordic cui­sine to Alta, a bistro on Mel­rose Av­enue, in the former Smoke.Oil.Salt. space. Lars­son de­scribes the food as a com­bi­na­tion of Scan­di­na­vian home cook­ing, fresh in­gre­di­ents and modern tech­nique. That trans­lates to a straight­for­ward menu of gravlax (mar­i­nated wild sal­mon with coarse mus­tard and dill); Sk­a­gen toast (Green­land shrimp with crème fraîche); and Lev­er­pastej (calf ’s liver pâté on house-made Dan­ish rye bread). Lars­son plans to add wild game and berries from La­p­land in north­ern Swe­den dur­ing the win­ter. Alta Nordic Kitchen is open nightly for din­ner as well as week­end brunch. Alta, 7274 Mel­rose Ave., Los Angeles, (323) 746-5221, www.al­tanordick­itchen.com.
