George Mendes innovative take on Portuguese is both impressive and adorable. Bonus points for the enjoyable ambiance, with one of the best chef's counters in town. [Eater 38 Member]

Try out the "very New Yorkified, Manhattanized, upscale-refined treatment of Portuguese" Frank Bruni talked about in his NY Diet. He's a fan of the baby goat three ways and the duck rice.

George Mendes innovative take on Portuguese is both impressive and adorable. Bonus points for making an actual enjoyable ambiance out of a narrow, difficult space.

Enjoy Chef George Mendes Iberian-inflected creations. The dining counter overlooking the master at work is perfect for a solo bite while the second floor dining room is great for a group. -Inspector

Looking for a big, sophisticated red wine? Opt for d'Anguera's 'Finca L'Argata' from Montsant, Spain. The Montsant DO offers great, well-priced wines (think of them as value-priced Priorat). Salud!

Good choices include the mussel soup with sausage, an open-faced sea urchin sandwich, plank-grilled Spanish mackerel in escabeche juice, and diver scallops with risotto and orange.

This place is one of my favorites- fantastic dishes, super food quality, a beautiful space, and a modern yet unpretentious space. It's also at a great price point.

Don't skip the stunning small bites and appetizers. During a recent meal, we loved the sea urchin toast with mustard seed and octopus cooked on la plancha:

Another great (and affordable) red wine option: La Ferme Saint Pierre's 'Roi Faineant', Ventoux AOC. Big, ripe plum-like fruit. 2007 was an outstanding vintage. A no brainer!

If you thought you were afraid of sea urchin make this place the one to break you in (especially if you generally prefer meat)

Superb food. Snag the chef's counter at the back for a good view of the buzzy kitchen. We loved the beautiful green and white asparagus with hen egg & black truffle ($13).
