Top choice fusion in Belo Horizonte

This intimate brick-walled bistro with candlelit back patio is one of Belo's most romantic addresses. Award-winning chef Leonardo Paixão peppers his menu with French classics, but hits his stride with fusion recipes featuring Portuguese-Brazilian ingredients like suckling pig, codfish, manioc, okra, malagueta (pepper) and hearts of palm. For a perfect introduction, don't miss the delectable 10-piece degustação de petiscos (appetizer sampler).
