Zazá Bistrô Tropical

Top choice


in Ipanema & Leblon

Inside an art-filled and whimsically decorated converted house, Zazá serves beautifully prepared dishes with Asian accents, and uses organic ingredients when possible. Favorites include chicken curry with jasmine rice, flambéed prawns with risotto, and grilled fish served with caramelized plantain. Don't miss brilliantly creative cocktails like the Caramba Carambola, with Amazonian gin (or vodka), carambola (star fruit), ginger, mint and lemon.

Upstairs, diners lounge in shoeless comfort on throw pillows amid flickering candles. You can also sit at one of the tables out the front.
