In 2018, another restaurant entered the list with two stars, the one from Rio de Janeiro., gold, of chef Felipe Bronze. The sophisticated house delights the palates by recreating the concept of “avant-garde Brazilian cuisine”. Remembering that the maximum number of stars that each establishment can receive is three.
