Not as ‘party-on' as Ipanema or Copacabana, Botafogo will charm you instead with its glorious views of Sugarloaf, its endless sailboats, museums, cafés, and art galleries.
Established in 2005 by Roberta Ciasca (also head of Noddy in Humaitá), this restaurant has quickly become one of the hottest addresses in Rio. Main asset: its homey decor in chic retro, with brick walls and furniture from the 1950s to the 1970s. Its charm is irresistible.
Besides its excellent caipirinhas, the Miam Miam has earned an enviable reputation for its creative Latino food. Highlights include lasagne, curries, ravioli haddock, and grilled pork. Order a tasting menu or a la carte in small portions. Simple and delicious.
