DOM - Maksoud


Acknowledged as the 5th best restaurant of all Latin America nowadays - as per S. Pellegrino World´s 50 Best Restaurants - and having been awarded with 2 Stars by the prestigious Michelin Guide, D.O.M.  is a singular restaurant without meaning to be eloquent. Quite the opposite, its message is syntactic and poignant: step out of a comfort zone and propose a new gastronomic experience, retrieving the most authentic flavours of the Brazilian cuisine from a contemporary standpoint.

Fogo de Chão - Maksoud

Fogo de Chão

Fogo de Chão is today one of the main names of carvery-style steakhouse in Brazil and undoubtedly the one that mostly achieved world-wide reputation.

When the first Fogo de Chão opened its doors in 1979, no one could have had imagined that the brand would reach so far. This barbecue empire is currently present in 32 locations - nine of which in Brazil and the other 23 in the United States. Having been initially established in Porto Alegre, the brand came to São Paulo in the 80s, with an ever unchangeable proposal of only offering a salads buffet and good beef cuts. Now there are branches in Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, and Salvador, besides the others in the U.S.A.

Dalva e Dito - Maksoud

Dalva e Dito

Located on the corner of Padre João Manuel and Barão de Capanema streets, the Dalva and Dito offers a concept of affective gastronomy. Conceived by Chef Alex Atala, the restaurant is a dream comes true for offering Brazilian cuisine within an international standard, prepared with an improved technique of low temperatures and served in the lounge in a classic brigade de serveurs manner.

The Brazilian calling at Dalva and Dito is explicit in their menu. Dalva and Dito's cuisine sustains Chef Alex Atala's belief in the national ingredients and culture. The cuisine which the Chef baptizes as affective is in the air. “It is the Brazilian ladies’ cuisine, an allusion to our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and mothers-in-law.”

The wine cellar offers a variety of châteaux, barolos, and brunnellos from old strains, which have been collected during trips to the regions of Piedmont, Tuscany, and others.

Famiglia Mancini

Going to the Famiglia Mancini Pizza Restaurant is really something great as the place is eye-sparkling and the food is a delight for guests’ taste buds. Besides the delicious pizzas, the pizzeria offers its guest a cosy and elegant atmosphere. With its large rooms, the pizzeria’s ambience - created by the restaurateur Walter Mancini – blends simplicity and refinement. And of course not failing to mention the wonderful pizzas, which demanded a long period of studies and testing before they were put on the table. The final result was the subtle flavours and the rare balance - all prepared under the command of expert pizzaiolos. The Famiglia Mancini Pizzaria praises for the quality of their pastas - prepared with olive oil  and resulting in a crunchy texture on the outside and soft in the inside.

Figueira Rubaiyat - Maksoud

Figueira Rubaiyat

Figueira Rubaiyat brings one of the liveliest environments to the city - inspired by the Incas to rescue the primitive cuisine of clay ovens and iron pots and pans.

Chef Francisco Gameleira is the one responsible for selecting the ingredients and for the immaculate elaboration of the dishes. Try delights such as the roasted red snapper, smashed octopus or the marine crate (octopus, scallops, shrimp, squid, and fishes). Besides this, the feijoadas are like they were prepared in the old times, accompanied by the crunchy roasted piglet raised at the Rubayiat Farm.

Figueira Rubaiyat also serves fresh oysters, which come in from Cananéia and Santa Catarina every day. The oysters are served with gravies and are paired with champagne or white wine. Refinement, variety, and flavour!

Paris 6 - Maksoud

Paris 6

Opened officially on September 26, 2006 by São Paulo native Isaac Azar, Paris 6 has always transcended the gastronomic concept, inspired by the centenary Cafés, Bistrots, and Brasseries from the 6th District of Paris (also known as Paris 6).

Amongst such inspirations: Café de Flore, Brassérie Lipp, and the city’s very first Café Le Procope, established in 1686. Isaac’s idea was very simple yet unusual: to put up a cultural bistrot opened 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, serving delights with no fancy to all kinds of public. Nowadays Paris 6 serves over 100,000 customers every month.

Bar Brahma - Maksoud

Bar Brahma

Bar Brahma is a tourist highlight in the city. Its many lounges preserve the spirit of antique São Paulo - with beige walls, mirrors, and dark wooden furniture lightened up by the glow of crystal chandeliers. In the main lounge, a small stage also pays respect to earlier times by regularly presenting old performers such as Cauby Peixoto, Originais do Samba, and Demônios da Garoa.

When it comes to sipping a quality beer (Brahma brand, of course), many prefer the porch covered by a retractable sunblind, which overlooks the iconic corner of Ipiranga and São João avenues. The menu is a compendium of good recipes - two of which are explicit reference to other icons of the downtown area: the picanha (sirloin cap) balls inspired by Bar Léo and the ham sandwich from Estadão.

Museu do Futebol - Maksoud

Soccer Museum

More than sports, the Soccer Museum is, above all, a museum of the history of the Brazilian people. A museum surrounded by the mysteries of the euphoria we all feel for the ball, the dribble, the kick, and the goal. Feel the enchantment of how an English sport - of white and elite - gradually gained new traits: it became Brazilian, popular, mixed-races, and one of the most popular cultural manifestations in our country.

Visiting the Soccer Museum is to tour around Brazil in the 20th century and to see how our uses, customs, and behaviour cannot be deviated from the orbit of this sport. Soccer has the spell that makes us realize the valuable aspects of history. This time capsule is assembled in one of the most beautiful Brazilian stadiums, the Paulo Machado de Carvalho Municipal Stadium - better known as the Pacaembu Stadium.

Parque Trianon - Maksoud

Trianon Park

The Tenente Siqueira Campos Park, better-known as Parque Trianon or Parque do Trianon, was inaugurated on April 3, 1892 - one year after the opening of the Avenida Paulista. The Park was designed by French landscaper Paul Villon and inaugurated by Englishman Barry Parker. The Park was named after the Trianon Club that closed down in 1953 - it used to be in front of the park, where the São Paulo Museum of Art is today.

The park offers playgrounds, exercise equipment, and the "Trilha do Fauno".  The name given to this trail was due to the sculpture "Fauno" of artist Victor Brecheret and the sculpture "Aretuza" of artist Francisco Leopoldo.
