Three-time James Beard Award Winning chef, restaurateur and cookbook author, Alfred Portale, has opened his new restaurant Portale at 126 W. 18th Street in Chelsea. This is Chef Portale’s first solo venture since he joined Gotham Bar & Grill as Executive Chef in 1985. Shifting away from fine dining, Portale restaurant is designed to be fun and spirited in a beautiful space featuring a contemporary Italian menu with a nod to his classically trained French technique which earned him five three-star New York Times reviews and a long standing Michelin star. The kitchen features an in-house milling program to create its own flour for house-made bread, polenta and pasta, and the menu includes an abundance of market vegetables, crudo, seasonal salads and grilled meats and fish. Chefs Jacinto Guadarrama and Adam Longworth are serving as Co-Chefs de Cuisine.
