Aldea is George Mendes’ restaurant-tribute to Portuguese cooking, with a sleek interior designed by Stephanie Goto (Corton). Aldea’s menu features a mix of rustic cuisine and sophisticated haute dishes made modern with the occasional help of hydrocolloids and Michel Bras-style plating touches—the kind of cooking that made Mendes a 2009 New York Rising Star.
