São Paulo: Fair
Contemporary cuisine in a tropical setting
The newest French-Italian addition to the scene from celebrated chef Pascal Valero is another of São Paulo’s exquisite Amazonian retreats, designed by architect Arthur Casas. The outside seating (with a retractable roof) is overlooked by a monumental wall covered by 7,000 tropical plants. (Kaá means ‘forest’ in the Tupi language.)
Valero, who came to Brazil in 2002 from France, has already headed two of the city’s finest establishments: Le Coq Hardy and the Eau restaurant at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. His signature dish is peixe do momento (fish of the moment), with mushrooms and truffle oil. For dessert, the chocolate fondue with coconut cream and bananas is a must. To get the full experience of rainforest elegance, a table outside must be reserved in advance.
