Patuá da Baiana

Top choice bahian in Avenida Paulista, Jardins & Around

It's expensive; we probably shouldn't even include it, but the experience at Bahian beauty Bá's 'secret' underground restaurant in her own home is just too priceless. You must call ahead and know someone who knows someone. If Bá digs your vibe, she greets you with open arms and treats you to a night of scrumptious Bahian specialties.

She chooses the dishes, not you. And all the while Bá pulls off a one-woman show as a caipirinha extraordinaire as well. It's a night you won't soon forget.
