Sao Paulo Restaurant Reviews
São Paulo's dynamic social scene centers on dining out, and among the 12,000-plus restaurants, most of the world's cuisines are covered. The most popular options include Portuguese, Japanese, Italian, French, and Lebanese; contemporary fusions are popular and plentiful. The city also offers a massive selection of pizzerias with some world-class offerings. Most places don't require jacket and tie, but Paulistanos tend to dress to European standards, so if you're going to establishments in the $$$ to $$$$ range, looking elegant is key.
On the domestic front the Brazilian churrascarias are a carnivores dream, with their all-you-can-eat skewers of barbecued meats and impressive salad buffets. For in-between times, just about every bar will offer a selection of grilled meats, sandwiches, and deep-fried favorites for casual grazing. On Wednesday and Saturday, head to a Brazilan restaurant for feijoada—the national dish of black beans and pork. Ask about the other traditional and regional Brazilian dishes as well.
