Brazilian food came to stay. Zazah, a restaurant that opened in October 16th, embraced the mission of bringing the life of Rio to Lisbon, not only through food but also through art and music. That’s right, you can dance after enjoying your meal at this new restaurant in Príncipe Real. There is a big map of Brazil at the entrance, a work that artist João Louro took to the Biennale di Venezia. There is also a bar with a generous counter and a lounge area that can quickly turn into a stage. The chef behind the dishes is Moisés Franco, who spent nine months in José Avillez’s kitchen. His work is meant to be shared. Try the alheira croquettes and the tuna ceviche – and don’t forget the wine. Zazah’s cellar is quite special, since its curatorship was made by Paulo Herknhoff, art historian and critic who is also the curator of MoMa.
