At this small, minimalist restaurant in the Flatiron District, George Mendes brings a modern perspective to rustic Portuguese cuisine. His signature dish is the arroz de pato—(rice, poached duck breast and homemade duck confit flavored with a puree of dried apricots cooked with Madeira and sherry vinegar), a complex reimagining of a simple one-pot dish his mother used to cook.
