Restaurants in Leblon, Rio de Janeiro are a delight for foodies, and the many upscale dining options to be found here will appeal to those looking to rub shoulders with Rio de Janeiro's beautiful people.
Top spots such as Bar d'Hotel, Sushi Leblon and Nam Thai see immaculately-presented dishes served to an equally immaculate clientele, while those looking for more informal drinking and dining will find plenty of laid back restaurants in Leblon. Jobi and Bracarense are good examples, serving typical Brazilian dishes to a friendly post-work and post-beach crowd, and are typical of Rio de Janeiro botecos
- combination bar/restaurants that attract a wide range of ages and social classes.
For something more informal still, head to Cobal do Leblon, where a handful of botecos and sidewalk cafes turn this quiet square into a lively meeting place after dark.
Vegetarians in Rio won't go hungry either, with two of the best veggie-friendly spots in the city (Vegetariano Social Clube and Celeiro) to be found in Leblon.
