Bairro do Avillez

Bairro means “neighborhood” in Portuguese, and this huge space that houses four different restaurants is chef Jose Avillez’s take on that. Taberna is a casual, lively lunch or dinner spot that’s outfitted like a gourmet deli, with glass cases stuffed with cheeses and meats. Páteo is a massive sun-lit hall where you can linger over a plate of bacalhau com brás (salted cod, potatoes, and eggs) for a few hours over dinner. Pizzaria Lisboa serves, unsurprisingly, pizza, and Mini Bar is a theatrical dinner spot with burlesque speakeasy vibes and a 12-course tasting menu. If you’re in town for a few days, try and hit them all up if you can—you’ll be able to try Avillez’s famous “exploding olive” in a few different settings.
