15+ Dishes from Brazil's New Two-Michelin-Star Restaurants
15+ DISHES FROM BRAZIL'S NEW TWO-MICHELIN-STAR RESTAURANTS
Finally, over three years after the inaugural Michelin Guide to Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, Brazil has more than one, two-Michelin-star restaurant, in fact, it now has three.
Chef Alex Atala’s much lauded D.O.M. restaurant in São Paulo, currently number three on the Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants list, has held two Michelin stars in all of the four Guides. Now two new restaurants have joined the club, both helmed by Brazilian chefs: Tuju (Ivan Ralston) in São Paulo and Oro (Felipe Bronze) in Rio.
Ralston, like Atala, celebrates native Brazilian produce, with simply plated dishes underpinned by solid technique honed at restaurants such as Mugaritz and El Celler de Can Roca. In Rio, you’ll find Oro mark two, where Bronze has shifted his culinary philosophy in favour of fire and the grill, in a new space in the Leblon neighbourhood.
