Nothing comes free in life, especially a $225, five-course tasting meal at Aldea co-cooked by George Mendes and Sean Brock (which some Portuguese-slash-Southern-food diehards might actually call a steal … and to be fair, booze, is included). Wallets aside, Aldea welcomes back chef Brock on Monday, December 5 to collaborate with Mendes on a special menu to celebrate Notes From a Kitchen: a Journey Inside Culinary Obsession, a book about the minds of chefs such as the ones cooking. Yes, a free book is part of the deal, too. To make a reservation, call Aldea at 212-675-7223.
Sean Brock rocks.
