You won’t have any trouble deciding what to eat at the restaurant formally known as L’Entrecôte de Ma Tante – all gastronomic dilemmas cease once you walk through the door, because celebrity chef Olivier Anquier serves just one dish: an entrecôte in a greenish sauce, supposedly his aunt’s secret recipe. We can’t help wondering what has happened to the formerly eponymous aunt; but whatever her fate, the solo star of the show, a traditional French rib eye steak, is good. It’s served with a pile of all-you-can-eat bistro-style fries (possibly São Paulo’s best); and there’s a manageable wine list that’s heavy on France and South America. The space, decked out in sexy reds and blood-red velvet curtains, feels slightly overdone, as you might expect from the fashionista/architect team that owns the place.
