This week I'm going to dedicate a few posts to one of my favorite things about Brazil: food.If you've discovered a great restaurant recently, either in the US or Brazil, let me know and I can add it in.
If you happen to be in Brazil, you're in luck! It's Restaurant Week in Rio through May 23rd, and around 90 restaurants are offering R$27.50 lunches and R$39 dinners. See the complete list of restaurants here. For the official Rio Restaurant Week Guide, click here.
Here are my personal recommendations:
Jasmim Manga, Santa Teresa
Geisha Hi-Tech, Botafogo
Tereze, Santa Teresa
Zaza Bistro, Ipanema
Sadly, some of my favorite restaurants aren't participating, but there are plenty of fun places to choose from on the list. Also, if you're looking to go somewhere to hang out for the night and drink some beers rather than strictly eating dinner, Devassa is a good choice, especially the one in Ipanema.
Also, if you're in Curitiba, Restaurant Week is coming later this month! See more here.
