Putting a premium on freshness, chef Andrea Kaufmann shifts her menu weekly to keep pace with seasonal ingredients. Her restaurant's multicultural, contemporary cuisine ranges from salads and sandwiches to ceviche and octopus couscous. The chef made her name cooking Jewish favorites, and she often makes room on her menu for bagels or salads with smoked salmon. A touch of the burlesque softens AK Vila's industrial-sleek design. On nice nights, sit outside and soak in the
Vila Madalena scene.
