Lasai Restaurant – High Gastronomy in Rio
Rio de Janeiro is a unique city and offers incredible gastronomic experiences, such as case of Lasai Restaurant, a mandatory stop for those who come to know the “Marvelous City”. Chef Rafael Costa e Silva, who is also a founding partner of the restaurant, has succeeded in putting it on the British list of the 50 best restaurants in the world, in addition to the impeccable service and atmosphere that goes back to the most sophisticated restaurants abroad, which are reasons enough for you visit the place!
The restaurant is housed in a restored mansion in Botafogo, and its gastronomic proposal is to offer tasting menus (of three courses and you choose the dishes, or a sequence of fourteen dishes or more, in which they are a surprise) with fresh and local ingredients. Vegetables grown, often organic and not always conventional, are present from the first course to dessert, another unique feature of the house.
Everything is very well thought out, the flavors match perfectly and the dishes reflect Chef Rafael’s experiences in great restaurants and schools in the world. It is worth to visit, especially for the harmonization of wines with the dishes of the menu and the coffee served on the terrace of the house, from where you can see the Christ the Redeemer.
Another very positive aspect of Lasai is that even in the surprise menu – called “Festival” – the dishes consider points like allergies and other dietary restrictions so that the experience is the best possible for the costumer.
Lasai Restaurant is really special and is also an excellent choice for those looking for a place to celebrate an important date. The restaurant is located at Rua Conde de Irajá, 191, in Botafogo, and works from Tuesday to Saturday, from 19:30 to 23:30, only by reservation, which you can do here, by email info @ riounique .com to ensure your visit to Lasai during your stay in Rio!
