Aldea & Lupulo

Aldea & Lupulo

Inspired by the dishes of his heritage, and guided by his years of classic training, George Mendes brought elevated Portuguese cooking to New York City with Michelin-starred Aldea in 2009. In 2015, Mendes opened Lupulo, modeled after the famed cervejarias (breweries) of Lisbon; and Bica, his Portuguese café. His first cookbook, My Portugal, was published in October 2014 to critical acclaim.
