Sitting at the foot of São Paulo’s most iconic building – the Niemeyer-designed Copan – Varanda makes for a solid dining option should you find yourself famished and on your own on a busy night in Centro. The people-watching potential here is high, with a mid-week mix of professionals from nearby offices as well as groups of friends congregating at the dark wood tables to drink, chat and snack. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer wide views of the streetscape, still abuzz until late evening. 

The low-key menu matches the low-key vibe, with à la carte options including pasta and beef, or fish dishes such as grilled salmon topped with a tangy caper sauce (R$42). Or if you’re in that part of town come the weekend, settle in for the popular lunch buffet (loaded with all the Brazilian favourites, and then some). Or for a quick bite, try a beef or cheese espetinho or two (R$8 each) – grilled skewers that are staples at any Brazilian barbecue. Just don’t expect the best service in the world.
