Michelin-starred Aldea chef George Mendes is opening a second restaurant where he "plans to tap into his heritage to open a rustic Portuguese," Florence Fabricant reports. Mendes isn't sharing the name of the new spot just yet, but says on Twitter that it will be "rustic, authentic, shellfish, Wood cooking and Many craft beers on tap: A CERVEJARIA." Mendes also tells Eater "It will be different from Aldea — same flavors but the cooking will be rustic, gutsy, FUN, and true to my roots and up-bringing." Expect a "very large dining bar" with beer, wine, and craft cocktails. The space, which is at 29th st. and 6th ave., is under construction and slated to open in December.
