Description

In May 2009, Chef George Mendes opened Aldea in Manhattan’s Flatiron neighborhood. Named after the Spanish word for village, the restaurant’s menu is inspired by the Iberian Peninsula and Mendes’ heritage. The chef adds a modern, seasonal approach to create a menu perfectly balanced between rusticity and refinement.

Name is Portuguese for "village" but space is as urbane-modern as they come. Azure front wall references the sea, hanging rod "chandelier" in back nods to air.
