He might have training in French and Japanese culinary techniques, but 2011 New York Rising Star Adam Schop is making his mark on New York City with his passion for South America. And he’s not going small-scale, either. Nuela is a big, bold space, with long communal tables and a deep red and black motif—a chic setting suited to Schop’s flavor-packed, large-format dishes. French training sings in dishes like Arroz con Pato, where a triple-threat-serving of duck steals the show (thanks especially to confit treatment and a rich dose of foie gras). But Schop really shines when he spikes an addictive, smoked Peruvian chicken with creamy Peruvian huancaina sauce.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Chicken for Two: Whole Smoked Peruvian Chicken with French Fries and Huancaina Sauce
  • Arroz con Pato for Two: Roasted Duck Breast, Confit Thigh and Gizzard Salad, Seared Foie Gras, Verde Rice, and Soft Duck Egg
