Chiado
Modern Portuguese

In 2015, celebrity chef Henrique Sá Pessoa moved his signature restaurant from Santos to a larger space in busier Chiado. The dining room, with its sexy stone-floor and wood-furnished walls, was the perfect new home for his take on modern Portuguese cooking, which combines classic, contemporary, and international influences. A few tasting menus are on offer, but patrons can also order from a tightly edited a la carte menu. The chef’s suckling pig confit, which is cooked for 24 hours, remains one of his signature creations, if not always his best executed. Exciting wines from Portugal abound.
