George Mendes
George Mendes Chef/Owner

George Mendes spent seventeen years honing his culinary knowledge, technique and style under the guidance of some of the world’s greatest culinary masters before opening his first restaurant, Aldea, in May 2009. At the restaurant, located in Manhattan’s Union Square neighborhood, Mendes’ rustic yet refined cuisine has received glowing two-star reviews from both New York magazine and The New York Times, as well as three-star reviews from the Daily News and Bloomberg.

In its debut year, Aldea was named one of the ten best restaurants to open nationwide by Alan Richman of GQ magazine, and was ranked third among the ten best new New York restaurants by Bloomberg restaurant critic Ryan Sutton. New York magazine ranked Aldea second in a list of ten best new restaurants, with Mendes named as one of the year’s four best new chefs.
