The Journalists' club has more tourists than journalists, but it is still worth visiting. Either to get to know its beautiful Lapa building or to take a peak at the outer terrace, one of the city's nicest for a summer evening supper. Brazilian chef Ivan Fernandes inherited the place from a local talent, André Magalhães, and switched the cuisine to an international mix, with original dishes such as the eggplant with miso caramel and pistachio, the shrimp “moqueca” risotto or the breaded scamorza with turnip and pear.
Time Out tips:
– If you are looking for a romantic spot, stop looking. This is it.
– Consider a Uber, a Cabify or a plain taxi cab; parking in Lapa is tricky.
– The best choice from the dessert menu is the ice cream with scented herbs.
