The salad bar at the Rascal is unbeatable. The selection of vegetables, fish (must have the sealed raw tuna slices) is amazing. There is also a pasta station which I thought was great but our Brazilian colleagues rated only as ok. Good service and excellent desserts!

We had lunch at Rascal and it's ok. Different kind of dishes and a good selection of wines. It's nothing extraordinary though.

Work gets me to Sao Paulo quite often, and this is a must stop all the time. The variety in the salad buffet is amazing. Everything is local and fresh! Simple food like food should taste. There is also an excellent appetizer buffet with grilled vegetables, meats and pizza. You will go back and forth to this one spot, guaranteed!... More

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighborhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighborhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
