Star Power

Maní's celebrity owners—soap opera star Fernanda Lima and her race car–driving partner Pedro Paulo Diniz—may be why this new Jardins restaurant is always packed. But the reason to go is for Mediterranean dishes like lamb shank with garbanzo purée, toasted peas, beetroot, and eucalyptus oil. $ Dinner, from $75. At 210 Rua Joaquim Antunes; 55-11/3085-4148.
