This is indeed the best surprise in São Paulo in this decade. A small boutique restaurant where the young, dedicated (not just in the kitchen but also in quality procurement) chef works as in a lab. This might what you like or what you do not like, depending on your interest. If you look for a well established restaurant that offers classic dishes with a defined standard, maybe this is not the place for you. But if you enjoy appreciating the artesanal touch and the research experience, you will tend to insert it among your favorites, and not just in Brazil. That is why I would recommend to choose the tasting menu, through which you can have an idea of "where he is" in terms of research and creativity. He seems especially interested (and skilled) in textures as well as in fermentation (BTW he just launched an intriguing set of vinegars, also from sugarcane bagasse, honey, etc.)

Epice is one of those few restaurants in SP where the food takes center stage. Epice is not about ambiance or decor or crowds and noise, Epice is about food, and that they do very well. It is a little pricy, but it is worth it.

Simply the best restaurant in São Paulo. It's been ages since we don't have such a consistency either in menu or service.
I've tasted almost all dishes in many times there and it keeps sounding like a perfect simphony each time.
Hard to find a match around the world.
Fair prices and a cazy atmosfere completes perfection.

A good place to go for lunch. Not so expensive, and with a very good food. Don't forget the pork belly - terrific!

One of the best, ever! Great food, inovative, inventive, friendly owners, waiters and specially a above the average skilled chef - Alberto Landgraf - who gets down to business with the team, for lunch or dinner. Been there many times and will be always back. Also, a great cost/quality/joyful experience relation!
