George Mendes will team up with Nuno Mendes for Omnivore NYC.



For two days the world’s most sensational chefs will be exchanging ideas, teaching master classes, and collaborating on spectacular dinners as part of the second annual New York Omnivore Food Festival. The event, run by the French culinary organization Omnivore, will be taking over the Invisible Dog, a factory-turned-art space in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. “Friendly Dinners”  are being hosted throughout the city, by dream team chef matchups like Paul Liebrandt of Corton and René Redzepi of Noma in Copenhagen. I’m most excited about tomorrow night’s dinner hosted by Aldea’s George Mendes and British phenom Nuno Mendes of London’s recently opened Viajante. Not only do they share a last name, but both chefs are of Portuguese heritage. Their four-course dinner will include Nuno Mendes's much-talked-about skate wing crusted with roasted yeast, mustard gnocchi and brioche. I hear a few tickets are left. Click here for details.
