Alfama Restaurant

Mimicking Magellan’s journey from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean in miniature, restaurant partners Tarcísio Costa and Miguel Jerónimo set sail with Alfama Restaurant from the West Village to Midtown East after a decade in business. At their new location, they infuse Portuguese flavors into modern dishes inflected by the country’s former colonies in Brazil, Southern Africa, and the Indian state of Goa. In the kitchen, executive chef Carlos Arriaga sautés bacon-wrapped filet mignon and serves it with Mission figs and grills scallops to plate with fresh watermelon for an entree as refreshing as a nap in an ice chest. The restaurant’s in-house bakery opens each day at 11 a.m. to serve freshly baked breads such as Pão de Deus, a brioche-like sweet bread with a coconut crust.

Behind the marble bar, bartenders pour crisp, light-bodied vinho verdes—featured in Wine Spectator for their felicitous pairing with heirloom tomatoes—from a mostly-Portuguese wine list. Though cocktails aren’t central to Portugal’s drinking culture, wine and spirits director Costa still makes sure that each has a relevant story to tell: “One cocktail, the Route to the Indies, is inspired by Magellan the navigator—when he was looking for the Spice Islands in the East,” he told the Village Voice of a potion that included curry powder and orange anise liqueur.

The dining area reflects the bright flavors of the food with vivid orange banquettes and blue and white tile work. The restaurant’s focus on Portuguese trade routes shines through as well: walls are ornamented with both the scenery of a Portuguese village and glass-stenciled maps of the world.

Tips

I was a little scared about dinig here after reading some reviews and because it was impossible to contact the restaurant to make our reservation (we made it through OpenTable). However, the food was great, as well as the service, and at the end when we wanted to order some Port, someone came and with great details explained us the difference between the choices. Indeed, a very good experience

They do not always answer the phone during business hours (it took 2 days and many many tries to get a reservation), and service can be a tiny bit spotty at times (eg: drinks forgotten, missing bread plate, missing knife) -- but they are so nice, and the food is impeccable -- so it's hard to mind very much. We had a really lovely meal and that's what we'll remember.
