Nothing better than staying updated on gastronomic news and discovering new places through the palate. Therefore, there is a new series here on the website and, every month, I will list the main novelties of restaurants in SP, gastronomy events and everything else in the city of São Paulo.
If you like to do wine tasting, there is an event to eat wonderful pizzas at Pizzeria Leggera Napoletana, harmonizing the delights with wines. It also has new breweries in Pinheiros, Japanese confectionery and Sao Paulo Restaurant Week, to enjoy wonderful dishes at affordable prices ?
Pizzeria Leggera will receive wine tasting event
Have you ever looked at those job vacancies for wine tasting and thought it was your dream job? ? So this is the time to put this desire into practice. After all, the Brazilian Association of Sommeliers (ABS) of São Paulo will make a themed dinner with wine tasting. The chosen location of the restaurants in SP for the event will be the Leggera Pizza Napoletana!
The pizzeria is certified by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVNP), an Italian institution that certifies Neapolitan pizzerias around the world. The meeting is scheduled for 16/03. Host André Nevoso Guidon will offer eight flavors, including margherita verace and pepperoni, mozzarella and caramelized red onion.
Pay attention to the operation of the event: you must buy the ticket for R $ 150.00 which includes water, dessert, coffee and service (except parking). On the day you will be entitled to the antipasti table and six pieces of pizza from the menu and two more “copyrighted” pieces. Each visitor must bring a bottle of wine. But, to know about everything, access here.
Japanese confectionery Hanami is new in Tatuapé
And who said that confectionery has to be only French? It recently opened, in Tatuapé, the Hanami, a Japanese confectionery. The pastry chef is Cesar Yukio, who creates the delicacies – very delicate, with little sugar and very light texture. All served in a very pleasant environment, of course, fluffy and decorated with cherry trees.
The highlights are the chiffon pastry cakes, that fluffy one. It has the stuffed version and covered with whipped cream and strawberry. And of course, an authorial creation by the chef, the tropical entremet: coconut mousse with banana compote and passion fruit topping. To decorate, a sculpture that imitates a coconut cut in half.
To accompany, teas imported from Japan: genmaichá (R $ 9.00), green with toasted brown rice, and mugichá (R $ 9.00), made from barley.
Pinheiros has two new breweries
Shall we have a beer? Nothing better than taking a trip to Pinheiros, Largo da Batata and try several types of this drink that the Brazilian loves so much. But, calm down, drink in moderation ? Recently, two new breweries opened:
THE Brewery 1922 is inspired by Brazilian modernism, an artistic movement from the 1920s – a fact that inspires the decor, colors, shapes and energy of the place, which is incredible.
The house has two own beers: the Anita pilsner (from R $ 9) and the IPA Tarsila (R $ 15). To accompany: pasta, salads, sandwiches and bruschettas, such as guacamole with cured pepperoni (R $ 22).
Where? Rua Ferreira de Araújo, 381, Pinheiros.
Hours: Every day, from 11am to 11pm.
200 meters away, where the Delirium Café was located, is the Caravan Studio! The main influence, from the facade, is jazz. The decoration brings that very industrial, elegant and cool look.
The beer label is much bigger, with 20 taps: Swing Lager (from R $ 12) and the American amber ale So What (R $ 16), among others.
To accompany, there are individual pizzas, pancetta and pecorino cheese (R $ 32) and also meat and malt dumplings.
Where? Rua Ferreira de Araújo, 589, Pinheiros
Hours: Monday to Thursday: 12h to 1h. And Friday and Saturday: 12h to 2h.
