The French have had a long-lasting love affair with Rio since the discovery days (see history). The warmth of the people, the climate, the welcoming beaches... French Chefs in Brazil soon learn to add tropical ingredients to their elaborate recipes, and many times come up with masterpieces. Don't expect hearty portions, but delicate morsels that will make you look forward to the next dish.
Olympe is one of the most tradtional ones, and a great choice if money is not an issue. In Ipanema fashionable Olivier Cozan has a fixed price menu for lunch that will be easier on your budget (you can still order a la carte). And then there are the sinful desserts at Les Traiteurs de France, the postcard view from Le Saint Honoré... We picked out the best options for you and arranged them neatly on this pocket list below.A visit to Escola do Pão in Lagoa will leave you with fond memories. Delicious breads, dishes with creative ingredients, and a cozy setting in what was once the home of Brazilian writer Jose Lins do Rego.
