Few know about it, but the current location of the Adega das Gravatas, reputed for its grill and its stone steaks (the Carnide area should be designated as stone steak capital), used to house an eatery that opened for business in 1908. In 1940, it began asking its patrons to wear ties (“gravatas”); in 1965, it launched a regular meal service and, in 1997, new management came on board. Here is a dish worthy of notice: octopus “lagareiro” style, drenched in hot olive oil with garlic and roast potatoes.
Time Out tips:
– You are welcome to donate the restaurant your own tie.
– Take a seat on the outer courtyard so as not to worry about the smoky smell.
– A good restaurant for (noisy) group dinners.
