Japanese restaurants are not hard to come by in Rio de Janeiro's South Zone, with the wealthy, body-conscious locals enthusiastic consumers of this light, if pricey, cuisine.
But not all of Rio's Japanese restaurants are created equal, and this sophisticated spot in the scenic Lagoa neighborhood is one of the best places in the city to enjoy a Japanese meal. The emphasis on fresh, seasonal ingredients means that the menu changes regularly. Seafood lovers fare well, and the set sushi meals are a good place to start. Call in advance to book a table onone of the verandas, and you have the perfect setting for a romantic meal.
