Fodor's Expert Review Cantinho do Avillez

$$$ Porto Portuguese Fodor's Choice
José Avillez, the head-turning young chef behind the award-winning Belcanto in Lisbon, has made a splash on the Porto culinary scene with Cantinho do Avillez, a homey yet modern dining room located just downhill from São Bento Train Station. Expect moments of molecular gastronomy such as "exploding olives" that burst with flavor on your tongue alongside glammed-up versions of local favorites like steak sandwiches, served here with garlic sauce and fleur de sel.
