Behind the Botafogo metro station, this lively gastropub is one of more than a dozen eating and drinking spots along this lane. The microbrew selection is outstanding (with a rotating lineup of Belgian, German, American and Brazilian beers). You can sit outside and nosh on thick burgers, appetizers or steak and Gorgonzola risotto while watching the people parade pass by.
