Calçada de Bacalhau

Three years after closing down his Alma restaurant, in Santos, Henrique Sá Pessoa reopened it nearby, in the premium Chiado district, with a more refined cuisine. It was a risk worth taking – he earned the first Michelin star in his career. The restaurant is a lot more modern than the previous one, a trendy spot for fine dining, mixing Portuguese classic dishes and some influences from the chef's travels and readings – Sá Pessoa has always had an interest in Asian cuisine.

Time Out tips:

– Two tasting menus (€70 and €90) plus à la carte dishes.

– The roast carrot appetizer blew our critic away – try it.

– The stove was designed by the chef; it is a unique, 750kg piece.
