Fodor's Review

Food as theater is the theme of the acclaimed restaurant of celebrity chef Felipe Bronze, who has created an avant-garde dining experience like no other in the city. A pink-hued glass wall allows diners to watch his culinary team prepare ultracontemporary dishes, many using traditional Brazilian ingredients. There are à-la-carte dishes, but most diners here choose one of the tasting menus (from R$180 for four courses to R$295 for nine). The "mains" are really a series of small, elaborately prepared dishes, including a tiny burger made of duck confit and foie-gras powder and served with guava "ketchup." Don't miss the Brasilidades dessert, which features no fewer than 10 tiny but perfectly rendered modern takes on classic Brazilian sweets. Clever tricks such as using liquid nitrogen to "freeze" chocolate mousse add to the stylish-yet-playful atmosphere, as do the waitstaff's uniforms, designed by Lenny Niemeyer, famous for her high-fashion bikinis.
