Maní will astound you. This rustic-chic restaurant run impeccably by the 2014 Veuve Cliquot World's Best Female Chef , Helena Rizzo, is often touted as Sampa's best Brazilian restaurant, and rightly so. The inventive slow-cooked egg (1½ hours at 63°C) is more famous, but the deconstructed Waldorf salad and the house-cooked potato chips topped with filet Mignon are true culinary coups.

The contemporary Brazilian dishes are best savored when your taste buds acquiesce to the five-course seasonal menu (R$195) or the far more dramatic degustação (with/without wine R$380/560).
