Restaurant or theater?
People always use to dine in places where they can get entertainment in addition to food. The banquette people are the real show in the evening and not the tasty dishes on the table. If you are the one among those unfortunates who had to dine in one such place like the Monkey Bar, Waverly Inn or the Minetta Tavern, you would have definitely felt deflated.
If I had been in your place, I would have definitely avoided such unfashionable restaurants. But the tremendous increase in food mania has leas to the rise of a new kind of Restaurant Theater.
The fun of watching your meal getting prepared is mostly entertained behind swinging or closed doors. But these days, many restaurants have started applying open door kitchen so that when you sit in the front row seat, your entertainment gets maximized by seeing your food getting ready.
These seats are a bit costlier in summer and if you want to try out the fun, then Aldea is a good choice. It is a Portugal restaurant, situated in Flatiron district. Here you can see the most famous chef George Mendes, wandering here and there in a small kitchen, squeezing this and that to prepare your meal.
You will find six seats that are faced straight towards the kitchen form where you can get this delicious view, not even a thin glass wall in between you and your meal. These days, chefs have also gained much attention as that of a Hollywood actor. Even though the chef is aware of your eye sight, they never distract their concentration from their work. With a little jet speed work of few minutes, along with a little bit garnishing, your dish gets ready. People from everywhere come here and have the joy of watching their meal’s preparation.
