Bar in Ipanema & Leblon

An icon in Leblon, Belmonte always draws huge crowds: it's pretty much a massive street party every night, with beer-drinking revelers spilling onto the sidewalk from 8pm onward. If you can score a table, don't miss the delicious, well-priced pasteis (dough that's filled then deep-fried), stuffed with crab, jerked beef with cheese, shrimp, heart of palm and other tasty ingredients.
