The name is that of the chef, one of Portugal’s most acclaimed. Although he’s already responsible for the menu of one of the city’s trendiest restaurants (“Largo”), here he continues to innovate with new dishes, while not forgetting his old favorites (like the clams with butter beans). It’s found on one of the city’s most tranquil spots, facing the romantic little Praça das Flores in the Principe Real district.
