Upscale Ipanema is short on affordable lunch options, but this notable exception serves generous portions at accessible prices. The chilled-out little spot is just two blocks from Ipanema Beach, and it's a good stop before, during, or after a day in the sun. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, it serves prato feitos (daily set meals), tasty sandwiches, and salads, plus healthful grilled fish or steak. Indulge your sweet tooth after your meal with the brigadeiro,
a Brazilian treat made of condensed milk, butter, and chocolate. Colher de Pau's version is among the city's best.
