Le Pré-Catalan

Le Pré-Catalan Review

In an elegant space overlooking Copacabana Beach, this carioca version of the same-named Parisian restaurant serves some of Rio's best haute cuisine. Chef Roland Villard, who's won numerous awards acknowledging his culinary skills, offers two prix-fixe menus. For the first he creates dazzling dishes using ingredients from the Amazon region; for the second he puts a chic French spin on traditional Brazilian cuisine. Each meal consists of a staggering nine courses and costs R$290. You can also order à la carte and feast on sophisticated plates such as rigatoni stuffed with quail, foie gras, and wild mushrooms, or duck breast with manioc balls and duck-thigh confit.
