There are two different ways to have a meal at Sem: either at the wine bar or the restaurant, both located in the same building separated by a window on a busy street in Alfama, where the 28 tram zooms by. Make a night of it by booking a table on the restaurant side for their eight-course tasting menu, or keep it casual at the bar where you’ll find a smaller food menu written on a chalkboard. They change up the dishes seasonally, but you can expect things like honey roasted carrots with pomegranate or razor clam escabeche. This is a great dinner spot for a small group of friends, a date, or dining solo at the bar.
