Congratulations to Chef George Mendes of Aldea Restaurant for making top 38 essential restaurants in New York City!

Number 14

Aldea Restaurant

“Quietly putting out top-notch Portuguese fare since 2009, chef-owner George Mendes’ food has not faltered. The Flatiron restaurant has had a Michelin star for most of its life, for dishes like mussel soup, suckling pig terrine, and the ever-popular duck rice, served in a comfortable room with a very open kitchen. It’s an upscale option with a price that’s comparatively low — it’s possible to get four courses for $89 — making it an accessible way to experience one of NYC’s top fine-dining restaurants”….(
