Restaurants in Brazil

Restaurants don’t get any cooler—or more Brazilian—than this current cult spot owned by 30-year-old Rodrigo Oliveira.

Known for its piled-sky-high mortadella sandwich and flaky pastel de bacalhau (salt-cod pastries).

Prior to the opening of this bar, Brazil’s best microbrews didn’t wander too far from the German-speaking south.

After a lunch of fresh ceviche at this beachside hotel bar, take to the daybeds overlooking the surf. In the main dining room try a subtle moqueca, paired with piquant pirão (a sauce of tomato, puréed fish, garlic, and olive oil).

Satyricon displays its fresh catches—including lobster, oysters, shrimp, and whole fish—near the restaurant entrance, and it cooks up this South Atlantic seafood into Italian- and Mediterranean-style dishes. The house specialty is the pargo, or fish crusted in rock salt and baked.
