Opposite the Portuguese parliament is a little red door on Rua de São Bento where you have to ring the doorbell and wait until someone lets you in. Once inside, you’ll see the color red is a major player in the decoration, similar to their famous medium rare steak that’s been bringing locals back to this spot for the past 40 years. Add a side of their creamed spinach, and definitely finish your meal with the tarte tatin. This is a great spot for people watching, since it’s a popular place for politicians to celebrate the deals they just sealed across the street.
