Eñe landed in Rio in 2009 following its huge success in São Paulo. Owned by twins Javier and Sergio Torres it has already won a place among the elite of avant-garde Spanish restaurants, though that remains a fairly niche market in the city. Leaving satisfied customers in his wake is Chef Joaquim Bo Jane, and the setting is a striking architectural project by Juan Pablo Rosenberg.
For an even more memorable experience choose a table on the varanda complete with views of São Conrado beach so that as the seven-dish tasting menu comes and goes, incorporating such delights as tuna tartar with pineapple and manioc chips (R$32) (pictured), and two new grouper dishes - one grilled (R$54) and one as the basis for a ravioli filling with mushrooms (R$56), the view out is as good as that of the food. Leave some room for the chocolate churros dessert (R$17).
