Top choice fusion in Cuiabá

Inside a converted mansion, the city's big splurge is one of Brazil's top restaurants, thanks to the efforts of Parisian-trained chef Ariani Malouf. Go for the set weekday lunch (R$55 for two courses) or else choose from the likes of pintado (giant catfish) encrusted with Brazil nuts or a perfectly-seared rack of lamb with sweet potato puree. Dress nicely and book ahead.
