As if being a major landowner in the Chiado wasn't enough, José Avillez opened a whole block in 2016. An entire building, huge, with a cloister full of light, where he presents various concepts. On your way in you will find the Mercearia (“grocery store”), with books, aprons and olive oil for sale next to Portugal's finest cheese an sausage; the same hall has the Taberna, with its many snacks, some of them original; farther along is the Páteo, for seafood and specially treated meats.
Time Out tips:
– The delicatessen is supplied by Manteigaria Silva.
– Try: the cod “alfacinha”, the octopus with kimchi and the croaker fish with “migas”.
– You can make reservations for Páteo (you won't get a table otherwise) but not for Taberna.

Very disappointed, highly overrated. Terrible service, virtually ignored by the staff...poured our own wine, nobody asked how we were doing or even if we liked the food, no attempt to sell us dessert. The food was unimaginative and bland, we sent the country vegetable soup back after no amount of salt and pepper could add some flavor. Honestly don't know how this place got 2 Michelin stars.
