Gastronomically inclined cariocas used to say that the only way to get a decent meal in Rio was by taking the shuttle flight to São Paulo. Not anymore. The past decades have seen a major overhaul in Rio’s restaurant scene, with young chefs experimenting with local ingredients and fusing the best from French, Italian and Asian cuisines with traditional Brazilian home cooking. This, indeed, is the key to understanding the essence of eating in Rio: good Brazilian food is, by definition, home and street food. It’s food made for the family table and long, leisurely snacks with a small group of friends and a never-ending string of drinks. Service is often described as “turtles in the kitchen.” That is the laid-back Rio way: no rush ever.
