in Gávea, Jardim Botânico & Lagoa

Thomas Troisgros, one of Rio's top chefs, dazzles guests with unforgettable meals at this award-winning restaurant set in a peaceful villa on a quiet, tree-lined street. Originally from France, Troisgros mixes the Old World with the New in dishes such as scallops with tucupí (a manioc root from the Amazon) or açaí-crusted lamb loin, followed perhaps by caramelized passion-fruit soufflé.

Vegetarians can also opt for a five-course tasting menu (R$390). Wine pairings are available.
