Top Restaurants in São Paulo
A Figueira Rubaiyat
Named after the 164-foot-high, 130-year-old tree at its center, this is where business executives impress clients and associates. The varied menu features Mediterranean fare, seafood, and steakhouse-worthy beef.
This rodízio-style, all-you-can-eat steakhouse or churrascaria is obligatory for meat-lovers. Following an ample salad buffet, waiters bring skewers of sausages and beef straight from the grill to your table.
Head here for Brazil's national dish - a black bean and pork stew called feijoada. Although most establishments serve the specialty only for lunch on Wednesdays and Saturdays, Bolinha serves it all day, everyday.
Spacious and fashionable, with a warm, award-winning interior design, Cantaloup offers contemporary international cuisine and a top-notch wine list.
Die Meister Stube
Set inside the Kolpinghaus, a club frequented by descendants of German immigrants, this establishment offers some of the best German cuisine around.
Enjoy excellent Genovese-style cuisine in a simple, homespun atmosphere. The owners pay strict personal attention to the menu and ingredients – the wine list, for example, is frequently updated based on customer reviews at regular tastings.
The combination may seem odd at first, but the fusion of Thai and Bahian cuisines works well. The décor changes regularly but always features contemporary art.
This restaurant has been one of the town’s best Japanese places since 1972. Sushi Yassu offers a full menu, but the best choice is, not surprisingly, the sushi.
