Leblon is best knon for its chic bars and upscale restaurants, but it's also home to a good number of traditional, unpretentious watering holes such as Alvaro's. More about relaxing than posing, this is a good place to come with friends for a few beers. When it comes to food, you can't go wrong with an order of pasteis -
little fried pastries stuffed with fillings such as cheese, shrimp, or meat.
