José Avillez was the first Portuguese chef to stamp two Michelin stars on his resume, the first to earn one for the Greater Lisbon area. At Belcanto, the second of his six Lisbon restaurants, his creativity is everywhere: both in fully reinvented traditional dishes, such as his “cozido” with a strong-flavoured broth, and in bold experiments such as his famous garden of the goose that laid the golden egg - in which a golden, edible layer covers a soft-boiled egg. And we've yet to mention the appetizers, delicious as always.
Time Out tips:
– More than a meal, an experience; don't rush it.
– This is no place to be a spendthrift – including when it comes to wines.
– The tasting menus cost €125 and €145, but you can also order à la carte.
