Mani aims to combine the contemporary with the traditional. Husband-and-wife team Helena Rizzo and Daniel Redondo use influences acquired across Brazil, Spain and Italy. Their menu is diverse, organically grown and is ever-changing. The pair’s delicate approach to Brazilian cuisine and stunningly beautiful presentations have established Mani as one of the best restaurants in Brazil, and indeed Latin America as a whole.
Why people go there: The eponymous maniocas, baked and served with tucupi froth, coconut milk and a slick of white truffle olive oil!
