Chef George Mendes at New York’s Aldea Restaurant

Chef George Mendes talks to us about his Michelin-starred restaurant, Aldea, in Manhattan’s Flatiron neighborhood. Aldea is named after the Spanish word for “village,” and the restaurant’s menu is inspired by Mendes’ Portuguese heritage. His goal is to introduce New York’s diners to Portuguese flavors, using local seasonal ingredients.
