Regularly named among the best restaurants in South America and the world, D.O.M. is synonymous with exclusivity in São Paulo's gastronomic circles—its popularity is limited only by a self-imposed cap on the number of customers served. Prices that would make Shylock blush help bolster D.O.M.'s regal reputation. Celebrity chef Alex Atala stresses fare with a Brazilian flair, such as filhote (Amazonian catfish) with tapioca in tucupi sauce and sweet potato
in a maté Béarnaise. Try the tapas-esque tasting menu for the full experience. And make your reservations at least a week in advance.
