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.

"When booking online there were 9:30pm and 9:45pm available. I took the 9:30pm slot and my guests arrived 5 min early. As soon as they sat down they were asked when I was coming (I arrived 1-2 min before 9:30pm) as their kitchen is closing. If they wish to close the kitchen early then they should not list either time slots as available. None of us were late but were pressured to order as soon as we sat down - this wasn't even the last seating according to the listing online. I have spend three birthdays at this restaurant and loved every experience - this time was a disappointment even though the food was great as always. Not what I expect from a top NYC restaurant."
