Aldea

Modern Portuguese

  • 90
Overview

This Michelin-starred restaurant in the Flatiron District serves up Portuguese-born chef George Mendes' seasonal, Iberian-influenced modern Portuguese fare – like citrus-cured red snapper and suckling pig and manila clams – in à la carte and tasting menu formats. The double-height space, sleekly designed to evoke water, air, and earth, mirrors the rustic refinement of the dishes.
