Fodor's Expert Review Aldea

$$$ Flatiron District Portuguese

Bouley alumnus George Mendes's popular restaurant relies on his Portuguese heritage as inspiration, which he elevates to new heights in this sleek space. Tasting menus allow diners to fully explore the chef's sophisticated cooking techniques and flavors, but it's also possible to order à la carte. Although there are no bad seats, watching Mendes work in his spotless tiled kitchen from one of the seats at the chef's counter in the back is undeniably exciting.
