Fodor's Review

Food as theater is the theme of the restaurant of celebrity chef Felipe Bronze, who has created an avant-garde dining experience like no other in the city. A pink-hued glass wall allows diners to watch his culinary team prepare ultra-contemporary dishes, many using traditional Brazilian ingredients. Starters include savory profiteroles stuffed with hand-made Brazilian cheeses; a hummus-style dip for which edamame beans replace the chickpeas (brilliant); and smoked salmon

wrapped in a crispy cone fashioned from manioc flour. The "mains" are really a series of small, elaborately prepared dishes, including a tiny burger made of duck confit and foie-gras powder and served with guava "ketchup." Clever tricks such as using liquid nitrogen to "freeze" chocolate mousse add to the stylish-yet-playful atmosphere, as do the waitstaff's uniforms, designed by Lenny Niemeyer, famous for his high-fashion bikinis.
