  • Aside from working hard, the country's economic engine has a reputation for eating well. With Brazil's highest GDP per capita and a bevy of business travelers, São Paulo can support the sort of pricier menus that tend to make celebrities of their chefs, such as Salvatore Loi of Restaurante Fasano and Alex Atala of D.O.M. From the more-recent arrivals in the city's southern neighborhoods of Vila Olimpia, Itaim, Moema, Morumbi, Brooklin and Jardins to the mainstays in and around the downtown, São Paulo has stocked up on five-star restaurants.

    A city of immigrants, not only from the rest of Brazil but also countries in the Americas, Asia, the Middle East and Europe, São Paulo's proverbial melting-pot culture has rubbed off on (or perhaps spiced up) its stove tops. Lebanese and Japanese fine-dining establishments, like Arabia and Aizomê, have joined the elite ranks of the five-star Italian restaurants, like Terraço Italia and Fasano.

    Meanwhile, the city has hardly lost sight of Brazil's rich culinary heritage. Customers sitting under the 130-year-old fig tree at A Figueira Rubaiyat enjoy beef raised on the restaurant's private cattle ranch. And while Fogo de Chão has gained international fame with outlets across the United States, the original in São Paulo continues to win awards as the best rodizio-style (all-you-can-eat) steakhouse in town.

    With so many world-class eateries from which to choose, selecting the top 10 five-star restaurants in this town was a tall task. Like a garçom slicing off a piece of picanha (rumpsteak), we had to make our cuts wisely. Stalwarts like Pomodori and Vento Haragano were left on the chopping block to make room for newcomers like Tre Biccheiri and Jam Warehouse. But we feel our list, like the restaurants on it, is bound to delight. So grab a fork, bib, credit card and your appetite. A plate with São Paulo's brand of luxury tourism awaits.
