Cantinho do Avillez
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
In theory it was not the first restaurant of José Avillez, in practice it was. Or rather, it was the first of a succession of openings in Chiado and the one where José Avillez took a step back from the high cuisine (to later give others ahead) and presented a series of Portuguese roots and foreign influences – I’ll take a MX-LX prego, please. Seven years have passed since the opening, but his Cantinho is still current, good and recommendable. And it should be remembered that this was where the mythical Avelã3 was born – trust us, and just go for it.
Perfect for: remembering chef Avillez’s first-born.
Must try: cod slivers, loose crumbs, BT egg and explosive olives.
