Fodor's Expert Review Bica do Sapato

$$$ Alfama Eclectic

A favorite among fashionable locals, this riverfront restaurant is known for its stylish interior and furnishings: Knoll, Eero Saarinen, and Mies van der Rohe all feature. It serves modern Portuguese fare and nouvelle cuisine. The changing menu may include braised tuna with mashed sweet potato and spinach, or shoulder of lamb cooked at ultralow temperatures and served with roast tomato, yam, and cremoso de nabiças (turnip tops with cream). There are always a couple of vegetarian entrées, too. Desserts include eggy Portuguese classics but also tarte de alfarroba (carob tart) and homemade ice creams and sorbets. From September through June, they also do Sunday brunch (€27). Upstairs, a sushi bar (dinner only) offers a range of classic Japanese and fusion dishes.
