Aldea is great. I thought the lunch was very reasonably priced.

I love Barbutto, and the signature chicken is great, but for some reason I always get it and think "should have tried other stuff".



I still love Aldea, and I was happy when the chef released the recipe for the duck rice. My happiness ended when I saw the recipe.

to be fair, the wine/drink list is MUCH more comprehensive than it was roughly 2 years ago.

I haven't been to Aldea in a while, but the last time I was there I thought they had a ton of Portuguese wines for very low prices. Granted I know very little about Portuguese wines but the somm gave great recs.

I've only eaten there once and had a fantastic meal, not sure why I've not been back. Seems like tables are easy to get.

One of my daily drinkers recently has been a Portuguese wine. $8.50 and pretty darn great.

Thanks guy, this is a helpful discussion. The other thing I neglected to mention is that we have an infant and for some restaurants it doesn't make a lot of sense to bring the kid. We had great success at Sake Bar Hagi and meatball shop (not the greatest but we always have a good time and enjoy ground beef, what can you do). We spent a few weeks in Portugal a few years ago so Aldea looks like a great place for when we take a night out without the rascal.

Fortunately NY has a lot of everything so it's not too hard to find a place that works whether we decide to bring kid or not. Unfortunately some of our favorite places like employees only and ippudo are probably not going to happen this year.

Horizontal rain.

it's only a drizzle in Tribeca. Lack of tall buildings seems to result in less wind.

It was the complete oppsite for me at around 1 in Tribeca. Wind destroyed my umbrella, had to walk a mile all cold and wet.

Whoops, yeah I meant clover club.

We went to both on Friday night and they were both really great places. Hoping to sit by the fireplace in the back next time at Clover.

The wild boar osso bucco was amazing at Brucie. And their coffee butter!! Granted, their menu changes often, as you know, but you should try the boar. So good.

I was crushing hard on our waitress at Buscie. She and I flirted a little bit and we did some tindering together on my phone for a minute. Was fun.
