George Mendes Michelin Star Chef

I had the pleasure of dining at his restaurant Aldea in NYC recently;  aldearestaurant.com/ Although he     was extremely busy with his restuarant full of customers he took the time to chat with my husband and I about his unique cuisine and upcoming ventures.
He was also awarded a Michelin Star for 2011. Congratulations to whom I predict, will soon be a “Celbebrity Chef”

We had;

“SHRIMP ALHINHO”
garlic, coriander, pimenton, pressed jus

TRIPE “A MODA PORTUGUESA”
tomato, white beans, chorizo, quail egg

“SEA SALTED CHATHAM COD ”
forbidden black rice, Iberian chorizo,
coriander-saffron broth

SPANISH OCTOPUS
“A LA PLANCHA”
squid ink-citrus purée, chick pea stew, leek ash

All of the dishes were delicious upscale, “Portuguese Cuisine”
