Inside Alta CA’s New Dogpatch Artists’ Enclave

It’s located within the Minnesota Street Project

Chef Daniel Patterson will open the second location of his new American-Californian restaurant Alta CA within the Minnesota Street Project tomorrow, bringing a menu and aesthetic very similar to the mid-Market original. It’s deep in Dogpatch at 1275 Minnesota Street, and brings an all-day offering to the vibrant art space designed as affordable, sustainable gallery spaces for artists and events.

The menu is a mash-up of favorites from the original restaurant, plus new dishes from chef Matt Brimer (formerly of Haven). It starts with breakfast, which features items like savory and sweet porridges, braised pork hash, and pastries from Nick Muncy (former COI pastry chef), moving on to lunch and dinner with low-ABV cocktails and sparkling wine cocktails on tap.

Deviled eggs, kimchi furikake
Brown rice puffs, avocado, espelette

Designed by Patterson himself, the 45-seat space has an open kitchen that looks into the dining room. Many of the seats are located a the bar, and communal tables, with just a few tables of four along the windows looking into the building’s atrium. Elements of raw concrete, white paint and light pendants, and murals by artist Catherine Wagner allow the restaurant to easily assimilate into the minimal environs of the art space itself.


Alta CA will open from 7 a.m.- 10 p.m. daily.
