Molecular gastronomy from chef Alex Atala

squid dish at D.O.M

D.O.M. is the fiefdom of tattooed celebrity chef Alex Atala, who absorbs molecular gastronomy tendencies and gives them a very Brazilian twist. The food is balanced and harmonious, particularly on the tasting menus, and the vegetarian version is served with carefully selected juices and fruit essences to provide contrasts of colours and textures.

If you’re prone to passing out at the sight of large bills, try the executive menu, which gives a beautifully presented spin on home-made Brazilian food, using crunchy, toasted manioc farofa with beans, rice and chicken or John Dory. It sounds simple, but Atala takes it to a different level, earning the restaurant the number six ranking in the San Pellegrino world’s 50 best restaurants awards, in 2013.
