Via Sete Arpoador

Fusion in Ipanema & Leblon

Half a block from the beach, Via Sete has a small shaded front terrace for taking in the passing parade of people. Head inside for air-conditioned splendor, where locals and travelers enjoy an eclectic menu of Thai curry, grilled octopus, risottos, steak burgers, bountiful salads, and, perhaps most importantly, rich Italian-style ice cream.
