Big Picture

Heated campaign Kicking off in June, days after Brazilians hit the streets in their thousands, originally against public transport fare rises, the Confederations Cup took place amid a sea of protest mixed with more predictable football fever – not least when Brazil won the tournament. In this image, on Avenida Paulista on 18 June at the height of the unrest, a street collector gathers Coke cans from a Confederations Cup display, set alight during the disturbances.

Editor’s letter June 2013 will surely go down in the annals of Brazilian history. This time last month, when we were writing in eager anticipation of the forthcoming Confederations Cup, seems like a lifetime ago. The competition came and went, along with a wave of street protests – the largest the country has seen in more than two decades. Brazil found itself a fixture in world headlines, and that looks set to continue as next year’s World Cup approaches, the protest movement

evolves, and the government – federal, state and municipal – strains to keep up with it all. From Brazil’s complex federal politics to the politics of cheese – yes, cheese, and yes, politics – in Eating Out we’ve taken a look at the state of artisanal Brazilian cheese, talking to two passionate promoters of the stuff, who are seeking out, supporting and selling the produce of cheesemakers from across the country. And what better to team with

cheese than wine? In our cover story, we raise a glass to the emerging wine scene here in São Paulo, spearheaded by a new wave of wine bars and adding an eminently welcome new dimension to the city’s bar scene. And from there to Hollywood, we speak to director Joss Whedon to find out how he transformed Shakespeare’s verse into a film, in his own backyard.

The

TIME OUT interview

The American director behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon, talks to David Fear about shooting a Shakespeare film in less than two weeks

F

ans of Joss Whedon have learned to expect little other than the unexpected from the game-changing producer, writer and director. This is an artist who would take a TV series about vampire killing with the goofiest, most Valley-girlish title imaginable and transform it into the most incisive show about teen angst ever. He may take a troubled boob-tube project – a Western set in outer space, no less – and force it to rise, phoenix-like, from the ashes as a summer sci-fi blockbuster, Firefly. Or he might decide to follow up the biggest boxoffice hit of the year, one chock-full of special effects and men in tights, with a scrappy blackand-white adaptation of a Shakespeare comedy shot for less than the cost of a day’s catering on The Avengers. Which is exactly what Whedon did, in fact; where mere mortals might spend a break from filming the aforementioned Marvel superhero epic unwinding, the 48-year-old filmmaker instead gathered a gaggle of actor friends and shot a guerilla production of Much Ado About Nothing literally in his own backyard. The combination of Shakespeare’s verse and the well-honed crack-sarcastic comic timing of various Whedonverse alumni (Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Nathan Fillion) initially suggests a lost episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but the cult auteur isn’t courting irony. As he told Time Out, this off-the-cuff production was the culmination of a long infatuation with the Big Bard’s tale of bickering lovers. So you were on an 11-day break from production on The Avengers, and naturally, you decided to shoot something… No, no, we shot it in 12 days. I mean, c’mon, to try and shoot something in 11 days – that would be madness. You’d finished production on The Avengers but hadn’t started post-production, correct? It was a month after we finished production but while we were still working on post-production; we’d been editing and tweaking stuff as we were shooting the film, simply because the schedule was so accelerated. Some people at Marvel were even offended by the idea that I was going to take a vacation, but I told them, ‘Look, this was a grueling shoot; I need a week off.’ About a month before we took the time off, however, my wife [executive producer Kai Cole] suggested out of the blue that, instead of relaxing on a beach, how about we shoot Much Ado About Nothing around our house? For some odd reason, I thought: this is a great idea. One of her

strengths as a producer is that she just wants people to do things she knows they can do well. It’s something we have in common, and I wanted Alexis and Amy to head up a movie. I wanted people to see how funny Nathan (Fillion) could be with the language. I knew they could do these things beautifully. So, filled with this ridiculous sense of giddiness, I just threw myself into it. ‘Yes, I can adapt this play in two weeks! Yes, I will rehearse it every other afternoon! Yes, I shall take advantage of the fact that my friends are insanely talented and know this text very well!’ This essentially started with you hosting Sunday afternoon Shakespeare readings at your house over the years, right? It probably starts even further back then that, when my mom and stepdad would host readings over Thanksgiving. But yeah, around season five of Buffy, we started hosting these Shakespearecentric lazy Sundays, which were inspired by my family’s holiday pastime. This particular play was one we’d done at the house

‘I don’t kill anyone this time, okay? I promise you, no beloved Shakespearean characters die by my hand’ several times, with Alexis and Amy reading the parts of the lovers Benedick and Beatrice – and with those songs you hear in the film, which I’d written specifically for one of the readings. There was always a great energy around those particular stagings, so when Kai and I started talking about filming something in the interim, this was the first thing that came to mind. Had you ever thought of filming this play before, either in the interim between TV shows or around the time of the 2007–08 writers’ strike? No, because as much as I’d seen great productions of it over the years and I’ve always loved the writing, I didn’t feel like I really understood the coherent whole of what Shakespeare was doing with the narrative. I didn’t feel like I had a cinematic take on it. Then when Kai gave me the book during The Avengers shoot, it was like reading it for the first time. Suddenly, I thought, oh, I know exactly how to do this. Then it was go time.

Do you remember the first production of Much Ado About Nothing you saw? It was a letter-perfect production of it at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theater when I was in high school in London. I saw it three times; they were doing it in rep with A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which I also saw three times. I remember the way the actor who was playing Benedick said the line ‘This can be no trick!’ – and just losing my shit, it was so gut-bustingly funny. I had great love for the play, though it was years before I really got that the story is presenting two sides of the same coin. Shakespeare is deliberately juxtaposing a very light tale with a very dark tale, and he’s saying that what we think we believe and feel are basically the manipulations of what our society expects us to think and feel. All that, plus it’s got a happy ending…I mean, that’s a story worth telling. [He sticks his face very, very close to the recorder] Everyone out there, I’m just going to say this once: I don’t kill anyone this time, okay? I promise you, no beloved Shakespearean characters die by my hand. I’d wager that if you lined up 20 different writers and asked them what they love about Shakespeare’s writing, you’d get 20 different answers… Wait, are we going to do that right now? [Looks around frantically] Are 20 writers preparing to spring out of the shadows? They are, aren’t they? Where should I get in line? We are not going to do that, no, but given that I’ve got you, Joss Whedon, here, let me ask: What is it about his work that keeps you coming back to it? You know what it boils down to? He loves everything and everybody so much. I mean, his love of language is obvious, as is his love of storytelling; the guy could switch genres or moods at the drop of a dime. But Shakespeare is the sort of dramatist who will give you insight into the souls of his stock characters, much less his lead characters. He will wow you with the intensity of a major revelation into the emotional DNA of humanity – and then he will give you a pratfall. You can go back to his writing for the laughs, for the ideas, for the way the little details and the big picture come together…you could get high off one of his syllables. It’s the complete package. He gives beautiful lines to gravediggers and jesters, much less princes and kings. Right. And no matter how big or small the part is, you always get the sense that every gesture and line counts. I remember when I was directing Adam Baldwin in the Firefly pilot, he kept playing up the part’s anger. I mean, his character is kind of a thug, but it felt off. So I took him aside

interview

Watch your language Amy Acker (left) as sharp-tounged Beatrice, and Jillian Morgese as kindly-but-strong Hero in ‘Much Ado About Nothing’

It starts with asking questions… …and ends with you wanting to find out what those answers are. That’s why I needed to do this, really. [Pause] It’s because Borachio is in love with Hero, by the way. That’s the only explanation for me. Once you realise that, it opens up the text in this really incredible way. It also makes Margaret’s story so compelling and sad as well. So knowing that I had all these great actors ready to go, I wanted to make sure that there was a reason for them to show up every day, even if the parts weren’t that big. That’s a recurring theme in your work: the notion of people banding together for a common cause. It’s there in Buffy, in Firefly, in The Avengers and, to a certain degree, in this. It may be Shakespeare’s text, but this film definitely feels like a Joss Whedon project. Well, a filmmaker has to be specific and go beyond what’s been written – even if said writer is the most brilliant English-language author ever. You have to skew the material to what moves

you, and the notion of a community coming together to face darkness is an appealing notion to me. The same goes for powerful female characters – not just Beatrice, who’s obviously a strong role, but with a supporting role like Hero, who could not be simpering. I wanted her line readings to implicitly say, ‘I have a right to stand up, and have my say.’ That’s very much part of my world as well. So yes, this play had a lot of overlap with thematic stuff I’ve been exploring for a while. Having gone from shooting The Avengers to shooting a movie in 12 days at your house, do you think that the process of doing a smaller, more guerilla-ish production

and said ‘Adam, don’t play him as a criminal. You aren’t the mad guy, you’re the cool guy and this story is really all about you. Think of the character as a lead.’ And he adjusted perfectly. That’s how I think about Shakespeare’s characters, particularly the ones in Much Ado. Someone came up to me after the premiere and said, ‘Wow, this is so different from The Avengers.’ And I thought, actually, it really isn’t. You have to make each of those superheroes shine, and get the audience to feel like they know where each of those people are coming from before they collectively save the world. I had to know why they were willing to risk everything.

Hands-on approach Whedon directed his latest movie in the comfort of his own home

like this will alter how you work on bigger projects in the future? There’s never enough time to work on something whether you’re doing it in 12 days or 12 months, really, and necessity is always the mother of invention regardless of the project’s size. You need that for creative inspiration; the one thing I don’t want is, well, everything. We had enough problems with The Avengers, in terms of juggling schedules and getting sets built on time, that it was a guarantee things would never be that easy. But there would be days when we’d be on these beautiful, perfect locations, and I’d just be stymied on what to do. Then we’d move to go a very difficult place to shoot in – and I’d be in heaven. [Laughs] The more you bump against the realities of the world, the more you’re forced to make creative decisions that feel more lived in, more believable, or just more exciting and daring. I feel like the restrictions are part of what makes things work. What it all boils down to, though, with whatever I do – is to try to make something for everybody. Shakespeare wrote for the masses, his work was and is incredibly popular, and I know that there are still some people who simply won’t go see a Shakespeare movie, period. But I showed the movie to a few friends of mine, and both of them told me, I’d never go see something like this in a million years, and I loved it. We didn’t make a movie where [affects lordly falsetto] ‘We’re here to stately declaim blah blah blah.’ It’s a romantic comedy. People may take a minute to adjust to the language, but it’s about two people who do ridiculous things in the name of love. Who can’t relate to that? Much Ado About Nothing is released on 26 July. Turn to the Film section for our review.

Brave

NEW world

E

xperimental cocktail clubs and craft beer bars may be the height of fashionable boozing in the most cosmopolitan of cities across the globe. Here in São Paulo, however, it’s wine that is promising to add a new dimension to the city’s bar scene that has traditionally catered to less-than-discriminating beer drinkers. The winds of change smell of chardonnay and merlot. ‘In Brazil, until a few years ago, we drank expensive and bad wines,’ says São Paulo-based Daniela Romano, creator of Selo 7 Sommeliers, a Brazilian rating system for wines. ‘But technology has meant that better, younger wines can now be produced for lower prices’, say explains. And as Brazilians’ disposable incomes have gone up – especially in São Paulo – so has interest not only in drinking wine, but also in learning more about it. Wine courses, enotourism and wine drinking clubs are all on the rise. We are experiencing a boom.’ And while drinking wine is certainly no novelty in the upper echelons of São Paulo society – the best restaurants having long been home to substantial wine lists and knowledgeable sommeliers – the bar scene is finally catching up with the public’s growing thirst for wine. Sleek new wine bars, basement taverns, and wine-shop-cum-bar hybrids have started to spring up over the last two years, offering a refreshing alternative to the chope (draught beer) and caipirinhas that are standard orders at most casual corner bars. For the most part, imported Old World labels and Brazil’s New World neighbours Argentina and Chile dominate the wine lists at the new crop of bars, though there are good local wines to be found. The wine bar and restaurant Bravin, owned by one of the city’s best-known sommeliers, Daniela Bravin, is one of the best bets for exploring boutique Brazilian wines, be it by the bottle or glass. ‘I think Brazilian beer is worse than Brazilian wine, so I’d rather have an imported beer and a Brazilian wine,’ says Bravin, who seeks out interesting local wines, with forty or so to choose from in her cellar. Other sommeliers are more radical; ‘I would recommend pairing a Cave Geisse Rosé Brut with feijoada,’ says Aldo Assada, the sommelier at the recently-opened high-tech wine bar Bardega, suggesting a sparkling rosé from one of Rio Grande do Sul’s boutique wineries to go with the traditionally humble Brazilian bean and pork stew. Although it’s posible to find fabulous local boutique wines by the glass in the city’s growing ranks of wine bars, it’s still way more difficult than it ought to be. Difficult, but not impossible, as you’ll discover in our round-up of ten of the city’s best wine bars. We’ve sniffed out tips on superior local tipples from the bars’ sommeliers, and where there aren’t any on the menu, we’ve recommended an affordable imported alternative. For those looking for a bottle or two to take home or out for a meal, we’ve also scoured town for the best-stocked wine shops, as well as the restaurants that don’t charge corkage, meaning you can sip your favourite vintage – or the cheapest wine you could find, if that’s more your style – without paying a pricey mark-up. We’ll drink to that.

DESCENDING INTO the cellar-like depths of Divine feels exactly the way a wine bar should: low-lit and sexy. Moody yellow spotlights illuminate the striking exposed stone and brick walls, with limited seating making this an intimate spot. Despite having only 16 or so wines by the glass (R$19 to R$90), Divine is nonetheless a devoted wine bar. Help yourself to a glass of one of the additional line-up of higher-end wines in the eight-bottle Enomatic wine dispensing machine; the tiny 25ml pour brings expensive vintages into the reach of ordinary mortals. Divine’s stronghold is New World wines (bottles start from R$76), earmarked on the menu where appropriate with symbols denoting exceptional vintages, biodynamic wines and house recommended choices. You’ll find four Brazilian sparkling wines amongst the 120-bottle list, including some from the coveted Cave Geisse boutique winery, in Rio Grande do Sul. The hide-away atmosphere here coupled with the good eats – go for the excellent microraviolis with camembert, macadamia nuts and sage (R$38) – make this the perfect spot for settling in with a bottle or two. Park up at one of the more private high banquettes and make an evening of it.

WINE DEVOTEES of the city unite at the bar and restaurant Bravin, where the unconventional owner, the shaven-headed, tattooed sommelier, Daniela Bravin, has an approach to wine that’s as non-conformist as her appearance. There is no list. Patrons place themselves completely in her hands, accompanying her to the cellar for the night’s best choice based on price, preference and – let’s be honest here – Bravin’s whim. Over a well chosen soundtrack of Brazilian oldies, Bravin peruses her exquisitely curated cellar, some 40 deep in Brazilian boutique wines alone, though loyal to the world over. If you don’t want to opt for a whole bottle, choose one of around six wines, opened each night and available by the ‘glass’, served in very generous 250ml mini decanters, and priced between R$19 and R$23. An insider, speakeasy air pervades the downstairs bar, separate from the more elegant restaurant above. Decadent nibbles include the breaded brie wedge with fruit compote (R$47) or the trio of artisanal sausages (R$28). Upstairs, hearty fare comprises the menu, though one gets the feeling the food is just the supporting act for the wine show. It all feels very bold, and just what the city’s wine scene needs.

IT’S EASY TO BE intimidated by Bardega, whether by the huge range of wines to choose from, or by the technology. The sleek newcomer is one of the latest wine bars to open in Itaim, cementing the business-centric neighbourhood as the go-to place for oenophiles. Frequented by a mostly post-work crowd, Bardega’s interior – a barn-like space with exposed wooden beams and an assortment of dangling lamps – is dominated by an entire wall of self-serve Enomatic wine dispensing machines. The machines are both Bardega’s blessing and its curse. Almost 100 wines can be tasted by the glass, dispensed in snifters of 30ml and 60ml, or in the more generous 120ml size, and ranging in price from R$4 to R$320. Grab a glass, insert your keycard and away you go. The blessing is that you can try famous, outlandishly unaffordable wines like Château d’Yquem and Vega Sicilia without draining your retirement fund; the curse is that this is the wine lovers’ equivalent of being a kid in a candy store, where deciding which buttons to push can be dizzying. Strategically placed iPads provide reading material for each wine at the touch of (another) button. Nibble on dishes from the Mediterranean menu. You can’t go wrong with the plate of delicious Spanish and Italian cheeses (R$25 to R$37), or the lamb loin with asparagus (R$32), though the mushroom risotto (R$22) was on the dry side. Just don’t let the wine go to your head – those push-button samplers can add up quick. Rua Doutor Alceu de Campos Rodrigues 218, Itaim Bibi (2691 7579/bardegawinebar.com.br).

The unpretentious attitude towards wine teamed with prices that won’t leave you in tears means it’s easy to while away an evening here. Moody lounge music plays while you peruse the choice of mostly French and Old World wines by the glass (R$11 to R$29), conveniently presented on a handy dry/light/fruity/full-bodied ordering chart. To complement the wine, the menu offers sandwiches, salads, grilled meats and a few culinary curveballs thrown in the mix, such as the bolinho croque – a deep fried ball of ham, cheese and bechamel (R$24.50). The space itself is all exposed brick and ruby reds, with naked bulbs suspended from the high ceiling. Sit out on the breezy front patio to watch the world go by, or tuck yourself covertly away in the back garden, though you’ll need to arrive early if you want to bag a table mid-week – the excellent 2-for1 on wines by the glass during happy hour (6-8pm, Tue-Fri) draws the city’s well-heeled oenophiles, as well as the bargain-thirsty drinkers, out in droves. Rua Doutor Mário Ferraz 561, Itaim Bibi (2628 8377/rougebar.com.br)

THIS CURITIBA-BASED upmarket chain is part wine emporium, part Italian restaurant and is an ultra casual spot to overindulge. Find a space at the U-shaped bar – the centrepiece of the emporium and a popular spot for solo diners wanting to grab an after-work trattoria tipple without the accompanying table-for-one self-consciousness. The early evening suit-and-tie crowd gives way to cuddling couples and families by dinner time, when substantial eats like oxtail with red wine (R$49) or gnocchi doused in spare-rib ragoût (R$35) can be paired with some 570 bottles, including a dozen bottles of Brazilian wine. Look out for the excellent 2008 Quinta do Seival, made with Portuguese grapes in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul (R$99), or opt for one of over 300 daily-changing wines available by the glass (R$16 to R$19). Themed tastings are hosted from time to time – often to the tune of live music – if you're interested in delving a little deeper.

With a mosaic of wine crates comprising the façade of this self-styled ‘champanharia’, it’s clear from the get go that the décor here has gone down the ‘themed’ route rather than the sophisticated elegance you’d normally associate with a champagne bar.

If you’re not a purist, opt for one of the wine cocktails, like the caipi-champagne, with bubbly, fresh fruits and ice (R$17). Rua Rio Grande 304, Vila Mariana (4304 0300/sacrarolha.com.br).

The decent Brazilian cheeses simply aren’t available to buy.’ Oliveira’s regular cheese-hunting expeditions across the country have stocked his shelves (alongside jams, chorizo and other handmade goodies) with a plethora of wholly artisanal, largely unpasteurised cheeses. Small slabs of slate, marked up with chalk, denote each cheese’s origin, from Minas Gerais to inland São Paulo, Santa Catarina, Rio Grande do Sul and even the North-

from the ashes of the now defunct Casa da Li restaurant, just a few doors down, where Oliveira sold his cheeses for three months as a test bed to gauge interest. ‘The demand for our cheeses was huge, and that gave us the security to know that the shop would work,’ Oliveira tells us. The idea had been maturing for some time, and the result is now one of the few options for those looking to buy quality local cheese in the city. ‘Supermarkets have a really weak choice of Brazilian cheeses, and those they do sell have no

catherine balston

When it comes to artisanal fare, Brazilians are spoilt for choice, from the endless array of traditional sweets that read like an anthropology of local history and ingredients, to the more ubiquitous savouries, like pão de queijo – cheesey bread balls. If there’s one artisanal food you probably wouldn’t associate with Brazil, however, it’s cheese. Sure, there’s no shortage of stringy mozzarrella loading up pizzas, or creamy Catupiry and requeijão sneaking their way into everything from deep-fried pastéis to sushi, or the squeaky sticks of queijo coalho, sizzling on barbecues at the weekends. And no self-respecting Brazilian breakfast table would be complete without a few slices of bland, processed cheese. But Brazil has a rich, underexploited heritage of cheese-making. We’re talking interesting cheeses made by small producers from north to south, but which are surprisingly hard to buy in São Paulo. Which is exactly what cheese enthusiast Fernando Oliveira hoped to change when he opened São Paulo’s first shop dedicated to Brazilian cheese – A Queijaria – in April this year. The bright corner shop is set in a pretty Vila Madalena house, infused with the ripe scent of maturing cheese - ‘queijo’, in Portuguese. It rose

Eastern state of Pernambuco. The best-known cheeses hail from Minas Gerais. Take the queijo da Canastra, for example, a hard cow’smilk cheese from the fertile Serra da Canastra region. The Canastra Real (R$60 per kilo) comes in a big wheel, as mellow as a good Emmental, while the Ze Mário (R$55 per kilo) is smaller – a pale yellow, dense, salty cheese. Some lesser-known Mineiro varieties to try are the Serra do Salitre (R$30 per 600-800g unit), a salty number not unlike a pecorino, though it’s made from cow’s milk rather than ewe’s milk. The Serrano do Rio Grande do Sul (R$68 per kilo) is a dependable, buttery hard cheese with a hint of the pastures where it is made – up in the mountains of Campos de Cima da Serra in Rio Grande do Sul, which has one of the coldest climates in Brazil. The real revelations on our visit, however, came in the form of the Campo Redondo (R$48 per kilo), a Mineiro cheese that packs a rounded punch of sweetness, saltiness and creaminess when it’s really young, maturing quickly to become a harder, Parmesan-like cheese when it’s 4-6 months old. And the sublime Suape – a sweet, Emmental-inspired cheese

The cheese master

Food & Drink

A passionate enthusiast, Bruno Cabral launched mestrequeijeiro.com.br to sell a curated selection of Brazilian artisanal cheese. He talks to Matt Phipps How did Mestre Queijeiro start? In 2010, I was living in Barcelona and decided to come back to Brazil to learn about artisanal cheeses. Cheese is my true passion. I travelled 6,000 km through Minas Gerais, visiting farms, talking to producers, recording production methods and studying laws regarding the sale of unpasteurised-milk cheese. That was when I decided to create Mestre Queijeiro. I noticed that the law was hindering the sale of traditional and artisanal Brazilian cheeses and, worse still, Brazilians knew a lot about imported cheeses, but nothing about Brazilian cheese. I had to do something to change that. What are you hoping to achieve with Mestre Queijeiro? The most important job for me is to advocate for the artisanal producer. They’re the keepers of a secular tradition; they’re part of Brazil’s history. I want to urge them to keep believing in themselves and their product. Getting the consumers interested in, and talking about, these cheeses, and thereby making sure that markets sell them, is also important. And I want to try to and change the obsolete, antiquated 1952 law that governs products of animal origin, which places no value on culture and tradition. Which cheeses do you sell? I only sell Brazilian artisanal cheese, from Minas Gerais, São Paulo, Ceará, and sometimes from Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul. The most famous one is the artisanal cheese from the Serra da Canastra, in

from Pernambuco that’s one of the shop’s priciest (R$80 per kilo). Soft cheeses seem to be less of a focus, though Oliveira had just had some new deliveries in as we went to press, like the Reblochon-like cheese Mangabeira, from Pernambuco (R$80 per kilo), and a strong blue goat’s cheese, Azul do Bosque (R$50 per 300g piece) from Joanópolis in São Paulo state. Chances are no two visits will meet with the same selection, be it in different varieties of cheese, or the same cheeses that have matured – but that element of surprise is precisely one of the pleasures. Look out, for example, for the cheeses stored in a wood-and-gauze box – they’re unpasteurised cow’s-milk cheeses that are less than 60 days old, which Oliveira cannot sell by law – until they come of legal age, that is. It’s an antiquated law that dates back to 1952, and Oliveira is hopeful that it may change this year, following a long-running campaign. Not least since – ironically – it contradicts a more recent law protecting the artisanal cheese-making methods in Minas Gerais, as part of Brazil’s cultural heritage. Oliveira seems happy to talk about cheese for hours. Just make sure he keeps slicing you off tasters while he waxes lyrical.

Taste test

Do you promote rarer cheeses? Across the country we have more than ten kinds of traditional cheeses being produced for more than a century. I am currently gathering forces to defend the queijo colonial from the west of Santa Catarina and Paraná. This cheese was traditionally produced by immigrants from Italy or Germany who brought the recipes with them. In 1985, there were 41,404 producers and in 2006, there were 3,389. These numbers are alarming. We have to defend this cheese. If not, it will be history before too long.

When Bruno Cabral is not hunting down cheeses, he’s the chef at the Basque tapas bar Donostia (see Bar listings), where he also hosts cheese tastings. Join the next tasting on 24 July and 21 August, with three local cheeses – an ash-coated goat’s cheese, a Mineiro raclette and a São Paulo blue goat’s cheese – as well as Spanish cheeses and hams. Price R$70-$80 (doesn’t include drinks). Reservations via 3034 0996 or contato@donostia.com.br.

Paulo’s increasingly cosmopolitan credentials, it’s suprising there aren’t more options when it comes to Thai food.

is perhaps in the name – ‘mixed race’, blending Asian and Brazilian flavours, and toning down the spice levels for the local palate. Mestiço was opened in 1997 by the Thai chef Marina Pipatpan, who went on to spend ten years living abroad before moving back to São Paulo recently to open Tian. Like Mestiço, Tian brings a mix of cuisines to its menu, with nods to Thailand, China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam and the Philippines. The setting for the new venture is sleek and contemporary: pink glass separates the kitchen from the dark, sexy dining space, with a large window overlooking the sidewalk. Whether you’re there in a group or as a couple, the way to go is by ordering a sequence of dishes to share. We suggest starting with the delectable squid rings fried in a beer-based take on tempura batter, accompanied by a kimchi sauce made from the Korean spiced cabbage dish, let down only by the lack of spiciness you’d expect from the original (R$22). Mestiço regulars will love Tian’s Golden Baskets (R$15) – extracrunchy pastry cups filled with chicken and corn – a miniature, more delicate version of Mestiço’s popular starter, kratong tong. Tom kha, a classic Thai soup with chicken, Kaffir lime leaves, shimeji mushrooms, coconut milk, galangal and lemon grass is smooth and intoxicating (R$20). For wok dishes, try the rice with Chinese sausage, shrimp, ginger and fried egg (R$25) – a classic combination in Asia. To taste some lighter fare, order the fresh fillet of grouper, marinated for hours in miso (soybean paste) and then cooked in a champagnebased sauce (R$38). Round off your personalised tasting menu with something sweet, like the koaniew mamuang (R$12) – moti rice with a coconut and mango sauce. The ultra-modern setting and reasonable prices (reasonable, depending on your appetite) have been an instant hit, and set Tian apart from its pricey Itaim neighbours. Silvio Giannini Rua Jerônimo da Veiga 36, Itaim Bibi (2389 9399/tianrestaurante. com.br). Open noon-3pm, 7-11pm Mon-Wed; noon-3pm, 7pmmidnight Thu, Fri; noon-4pm, 7pm-mignight Sat; noon-5pm Sun.

under R$20 midweek, or a bit more on Sundays, though curiously it shuts up shop on Saturdays. A newer, slicker Vila Olímpia branch opened a few years ago, bringing this top veggie lunch option to that area’s hordes of office workers.

Rua Ramos Batista 443, Vila Olímpia (2639 5799). BRAZILIAN Varanda Copan Sitting

at the foot of the Niemeyer-designed Copan, Varanda makes for a solid dining option should you find yourself famished on a busy night in Centro. A mix of professionals as well as groups of friends congregate mid-week 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). 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). Just don’t expect the best service in the world. Avenida Ipiranga 200, República (3120 4442/varandacopan. com.br). Metrô 3, República. Open 11.30am-midnight Mon-Sat. Main courses R$25-$40, lunch R$35.90 per kilo; couvert R$5-$10.

Consolação & Higienópolis AMERICAN 210 Diner Done out in the style of a classic American diner, albeit a swish, upgraded one, 210 Diner has quickly become a go-to spot in Higienópolis for those in search of a hearty slice of Americana. We’d consider the mushroom-flecked macaroni cheese as a possible side order for our last-ever meal – consider, we said; and the tuna-melt sandwich ain’t half bad either. Burgers are a good choice too – get us a piggie burger while you’re in there, will you? It’s hunky and chargrilled, and topped with deboned pork ribs in barbecue sauce. Rua Pará 210, Higienópolis (3661 1219/210diner.com. br). Metrô 4, Paulista. Open noon-3pm Mon; noon-3pm, 7-11.30pm Tue-Fri; noon-4pm, 7-11.30pm Sat; noon-4pm, 7-10.45pm Sun. Main courses R$16$52; lunch R$27-$49. ECLECTIC Carlota The chef, Carla Pernambuco, has an enviable creative spirit. In her multicultural kitchen, international cuisine is fused with typical Brazilian gastronomy and delivers surprising results. The amazing sole filet with golden goat’s cheese sauce, fresh palm hearts and mushroom fettuccine is one example of why Carlota wins legions of foodie fans, as is the camarão crocante com risoto de presunto parma – crunchy shrimp with parma ham risotto. Rua Sergipe 753, Higienópolis (3661 9465/ carlota.com.br). Open 7pm-midnight

MIDDLE EASTERN Kebabel ‘Beer and kebabs’ is Kebabel’s tagline, and boy do they deliver on both those promises – as well as delivering to your home, too, if you live in the area. Served in a traditional pitta, the kebabs are skinny but packed full of flavour. Try a falafel kebab with vinaigrette, pickles, Arab spices, and tahini (sesame paste) on the side. Meat lovers can opt for lamb, chicken or kofta kebabs. To quench your thirst, order an award-winning Colorado Appia or Indica (chope R$7.50), brewed in Ribeirão Preto, or one of a range of bottled imports like the Belgian Delirium Nocturnum (R$36). Rua Fernando de Albuquerque 22, Consolação (3259 1805/kebabel. com.br). Metrô 2, Consolação. Open 6pm-midnight Tue-Thu; noon-midnight Fri; 1pm-midnight Sat; 6pm-midnight Sun.

ECLECTIC Mestiço A grand dame of fusion restaurants, GLS-friendly Mestiço continues to update itself by regularly changing the artwork and trying out new menu items, while sticking to its guns of good cooking. The water feature at the back and the table layout might be a tad dated, but the food continues to be a draw. Order a veggie or Thai curry for mains, and you’ll get decent portions served

to 1980, this is one of the old guard of vegetarian buffets in downtown São Paulo, and it remains the one to beat. The simple, somewhat dated décor may not create the best first impression, but the food is always made with an imaginative twist. Start off by grazing on a variety of salads or a bowl of soup, and then hit the hot food counter, which typically features a dozen or so Brazilian dishes that vary each day. Cheesecake and ice-cream round off this high-quality buffet, and it’s a steal at

CONTEMPORARY Sal Gastronomia From the outside, the black façade looks more like the entrance to a dungeon than a fine dining experience. Venture round the back, and grab a seat in the courtyard – a space that the restaurant shares with cutting edge Galeria Vemelho – or inside where the narrow space would be claustrophobic were it not for the bustle of the kitchen seen behind a glass wall. The gnocchi were excellent, in a rich, tomato and lamb sauce, and the cupim – a cheap cut from the hump of the zebu cow, which can be tough – was served semi-shredded and wholly delicious. This is good eating that is easy on the pocket too, right down to the wine menu with its simple sauvignon blancs. Rua Minas Gerais 350, Higienópolis (3151 3085/ salgastronomia.com.br). Open noon-3pm, 8-11.30pm Tue-Fri; noon-3pm, 8.30pmmidnight Sat. Main courses R$38-$68; couvert R$6-$12. BARBECUE Sujinho The best time to get

down and dirty at Sujinho is in the small hours of the morning before it shuts at 5am, when you’ll find meat-hungry punters tucking in to big hunks of picanha and espeto misto (mixed grilled meats). This traditional bisteca is still known to many old-school paulistanos as ‘Bar das Putas’ (the whores’ bar) for its clientele, who would come to relax after work back in the ’70s and ’80s, when Consolação was a place to pick up prostitutes. These days Sujinho has smartened up its image considerably and there are now three restaurants plus a hamburger joint. Rua da Consolação 2078, Consolação (3231 1299/sujinho. com.br). Metrô 4, Paulista. Open 11.30am-5am daily. Main courses R$30.25-$78.75 (for two); couvert R$9. No credit cards. Other locations Rua da Consolação at 2063 and 2068 (3231 1299); Avenida Ipiranga 1058, República (3229 9986). BRAZILIAN Tordesilhas Fans of Brazilian high gastronomy will not be disappointed by this rare example of a famous chef making truly traditional dishes. Mara Salles was inspired by her roots in Pernambuco (a state on the north-east coast) to work mostly with local ingredients and to highlight regional dishes. Salles’s culinary wizardry is best sampled in the pato no tucupi (duck and manioc stew). For dessert, try the cupuaçu ice cream – a mind-blowingly tangy Amazonian fruit. Tordesilhas regulars will miss the restaurant’s excellent-value tasting menu, which is no longer being served following a change of address in May to the upmarket Jardins. Alameda Tietê 489, Jardim Paulista (3107 7444/ tordesilhas.com). Open 5pm-1am Tue-Fri; noon-5pm, 7pm-1am Sat; noon-5pm Sun. Prices main courses R$53-$77.

with steaming jasmine rice. Chocoholics will love the brownies – ask the waiter to load up on the sweet, custardy chocolate sauce. And as a finishing touch, the bill shouldn’t break the bank – a bonus in a city where restaurant prices can occasionally seem tantamount to daylight robbery. Rua Fernando de Albuquerque 277, Consolação (3256 3165/mestico.com. br). Metrô 4, Paulista. Open 11.45ammidnight Mon; 11.45am-1am Tue-Thu; 11.45am-2am Fri, Sat; 11.45ammidnight Sun. Main courses R$34$72.50; lunch R$41-$44.

PERUVIAN Killa The food at this amiable local eatery is not just Peruvian, but novoandina – ‘new Andean’. Peruvian cuisine is increasingly important and the novoandina concept is to mix preHispanic cooking techniques with other elements like European cooking. Here at Killa, the emphasis is on Peru’s wonderful signature dish: the raw fish salad, ceviche. And it’s delicious, with lightly-flavoured, delicate flakes of fish gently bathed in citric flavours. Our only criticism? The small portions, which might leave customers with a big appetite still hungry after lunch. Rua Padre Chico 324 (08551 8511/killa.com.br). Open 7-11.30pm Tue-Thu; 7pm-midnight Fri; 1-4pm, 8pm-midnight Sat; 1-5pm Sun. Main courses R$28-$39. ITALIAN Mangiare Hidden away

in Vila Leopoldina, a fast-growing neighbourhood in the west of the city, Mangiare packs in as many diners as possible to its expansive but cosy former warehouse space. After initial teething troubles, Mangiare is now running like a finely tuned orchestra – pastas are served al dente, grilled meats are succulent, and the waiters are calm and collected. Don’t skip the delicious couvert of homemade breads. The maltagliati pasta with Bolognese ragoût (R$32) is a delicious option, but if you’re dining à deux, try the la vera bisteca alla fiorentina (R$120 for two people) – a T-bone steak covered in garlic and rosemary. Avenida Imperatriz Leopoldina 681,Vila Leopoldina (3034 5074/mangiaregastronomia.com.br). Open noon-4pm, 7pm-midnight MonSat; noon-5pm, 7pm-11pm Sun. Main courses R$32-$60.

Thai Namga Satisfying a craving for Thai food in São Paulo is no easy task, so when we heard about this progeny of the much-loved takeaway Tele-Thai, we were in there like a shot. Thai classics like fragrant green curry, light and crunchy pad Thai and khao soi kai – a mild curry noodle soup – are on the menu alongside more inventive dishes like the succulent pork-filled squid. For a sensory overload, order the miang kham – build-your-own bundles of Japanese spinach filled with lemon, chillies, coconut and nuts. Rua Apiacás 92, Perdizes (2507 1774/namga. com.br). Open noon-3pm, 7-10.30pm Mon-Thu; noon-3pm, 7-11.30pm Fri, Sat. Main courses R$23-$39. Japanese Zendô Head straight for a

seat at the counter, order the combinado do chef (R$80) and prepare to be immersed in the Brazilian-Japanese creations that sushi purists would call sacrilege; others, a damn good contemporary twist. The sashimi here is fabulously fresh. We tried haro hot – shimeji mushrooms wrapped inside crunchy spring-roll batter, followed by the pantanal – salmon uramaki topped with deep fried kale. Be prepared to arrive with an open mind, and leave with a belly swelling to sumo-sized proportions. Rua Desembargador do Vale 438, Perdizes (3554 3433/zendosushi. com.br).

Winter warmer Yosenabe

INTERNATIONAL Arturito Intimate

dark wood panelling, austere lighting, and stylish seating with cushions and throw pillows distinguish this luxurious member of the São Paulo dining scene. It’s positively bursting at the weekend, since word got around about the restaurant and its trendy Argentinian chef and co-proprietor, Paola Carosella, and it’s now on the must-do list of every well-to-do paulistano. The wonderfully varied and ever-changing menu includes some uncommon dishes for Brazil, such as leg of lamb, ceviche (raw fish marinated in citrus juices) and the Argentinian specialty of grilled sweetbreads. The menu also features outstanding classics: freshly made pasta, prime beef (try the exquisite ojo de bife) and pork as well as an extensive wine list. Rua Artur Azevedo 542, Pinheiros (3063 4951/arturito.com.br). Open noon-3pm, 7pm-midnight Tue, Wed; noon-3pm, 7pm-1am Thu, Fri; 12.304pm, 7pm-1am Sat; 12.30-4pm Sun.

a dozen jabuticaba trees, or inside this gorgeous converted vintage house, where the tree boughs are allowed to wind freely through the airy space. Chef Filomena Chiarella has gained legions of followers for her authentic recipes, learned in her native Basilicata, in Italy’s balmy South. Chiarella’s signature dishes include artisanal gnocchi and the delicious jabuticaba ice-cream (R$8), served while the delicious purple fruits are in season, in September and October. Rua João Moura 976, Pinheiros (3083 5991/buttina.com. br). Open noon-2.30pm, 8-11.30pm Tue-Thu; noon-2.30pm, 8pm-12.30am Fri; 1pm-12.30am Sat; 1-5pm Sun. Main courses R$20.80-$49.80; lunch R$31.50.

Eclectic Gardênia Old(ish)-timers will have seen the metamorphosis in 2005 that transformed the no-frills-bar Café Gardênia into simply Gardênia. After a big refurbishment, under the new ownership of Carlos Moraes, Gardênia has emerged as the restaurant in São Paulo in which to eat mouth-wateringly good lamb, which is raised on their own farm. With over seven lamb options on the menu, choosing is the hard part. Try the rack of lamb with mint pesto or the tender paleta de cordeiro –shoulder of lamb – marinated in white wine, garlic and rosemary and served either individually or as the whole shoulder for sharing. A seat out the front affords a lush view of the towering trees clumped together on Praça dos Omaguás. Gardênia spread its wings in 2009, opening a second branch in Jardins. Praça dos Omaguás 110, Pinheiros (3815 9247/ gardeniaresto.com.br). Open noon-3pm, 7pm-midnight Mon-Fri; 1pm-midnight Sat; 1-9pm Sun. Main courses R$37$49; couvert R$7.

Donizetti’s most famous opera, that this restaurant is named after but the proprietor who was born in the Puglia region of Italy. For aficionados of Italian cuisine – which means, arguably, most of us – this restaurant offering the right combination of antipasti, pasta and wines, should hit the spot. In its new incarnation in Vila Madalena (the restaurant moved in 2011), what the restaurant may have lost in cosy charm, it makes up for in added space. For antipasti, try the tender marinated eggplant, the rich and tiny boursin cheese balls, and some generous hunks of salami (cured on the premises); it all might just lead you to attempt a top-of-your-lungs Pavarotti number. Rua Girassol 66, Vila Madalena (3081 0333/pasqualecantina. com.br). Open noon-midnight Mon-Sat. Main courses R$21.50-$41.

Vila Madalena & Pinheiros

MIDDLE EASTERN Pita Kebab The

The upmarket Aizomê is among the top Japanese restaurants in town, and the chef-owner Shinya Koike’s ‘East meets West’ approach is best sampled with tasting menus like his new one, tailored especially for the winter. Though the sequence of dishes changes daily, the warming mains will include either a sukiyaki (Japanese hot pot), sobá noodles in a duck broth, or yosenabe (see photo) – a miso-based stew with a choice of chicken, tofu, seafood or vegetables. R$180 (7 courses). See listings. eating through his courses and events. The restaurant’s sumptuous decor, with red velvet banquettes and wrought-iron chandeliers, contrasts with the simple, healthy, lunch-only menu. Try the kibbeh with mint sauce or the delicious vegetarian cassoulet. The houmous and couscous also come highly recommended. Rua Cônego Eugênio Leite 1152, Pinheiros (3031 0680/goavegetariano. com.br). Open noon-3.30pm Tue-Fri; noon-4.30pm Sat, Sun. Main courses R$22.50-$28; lunch R$19-$23. BARGAIN

JAPANESE Hideki Don’t let its rather modest exterior, or its location on a busy party street, put you off: inside Hideki, the focus is on the freshest of fresh fish, served in a convivial, family-friendly and decidedly non-trendy atmosphere. The sashimi and sushi are a cut above, albeit with prices to match, and the tempura is light, crispy perfection. The emphasis here is on quality rather than quantity, though the lunchtime buffet is a relatively economical way to sample Hideki’s delights. To drink go for saké, which is served in a masu – a square cup – with the chilled liquid spilling out over the sides. It’s all in the name of good luck, apparently. Rua dos Pinheiros 70, Pinheiros (3086 0685/hidekisushi.com.br). Open noon-3pm, 7pm-midnight MonSat; noon-4pm, 7-11pm Sun. Prices sushi set for one from R$90.

Sit outside at one of a scattering of tables, covered in red-and-white checkered tablecloths, and peruse the menu, which you’ll find unceremoniously glued to the back of a wine bottle. The food is nothing to write home about, but the laid-back charm and modest prices make this an ideal neighbourhood bolt-hole. Our tip? Avoid the gritty moules and go for one of the salads, served in large bowls with a satisfying ratio of lettuce to tasty bits, such as crispy sautéed potatoes or melted goat’s cheese on croutons. Rua Mourato Coelho 1343, Vila Madalena (3814 2445/lapero. com.br). Open 7pm-1am Mon-Fri; noon4.30pm, 7pm-1am Sat. Main courses R$24-$36; couvert R$10. BARGAIN

BARBECUE Martín Fierro If meat’s

in order tonight, then this enduringly popular Argentinian restaurant may be just the ticket. There are a handful of Brazilian cuts on the menu; but aside from those, you can pretend you’re in Buenos Aires to excellent effect with the very good bife de chorizo (sirloin) and the asado de tira (beef thin ribs). The side salad is possibly a little too simple – just like in Buenos Aires, in fact – but some empanadas to start with are a good idea. Rua Aspicuelta 683, Vila Madalena (3814

owners of this local bar and eaterie may be Italian, but they make a mean kebab with their own blend of spices. Lamb and kafta kebabs are the stars of the show, served either wrapped up in pitta bread, or on their own with salad. For something lighter, go for the mini falafel balls or, for an Italian twist, grilled courgettes in raspberry vinegar. To drink, don’t miss the refreshing homemade lemonade with mint (suco de limão com hortelã) or the eclectic beer menu. Thursday and Friday nights get busy with a student crowd, packing out the leafy, glass-covered patio. Rua Francisco Leitão 282, Pinheiros (3774 1790/pitakebabbar.com.br).

CONTEMPORARY Rothko Artist Diego Belda has turned his creative hand to cuisine at his restaurant Rothko, which opened in early 2011. Drawing inspiration from a number of cuisines, each dish is a beautiful composition of flavours and vibrant colours. Order a selection of small dishes – bocadilhos – or go for a less creative but equally tasty main course. The downsides? Slow service, and a fair few items missing from the menu. Teething troubles, we hope. Rua Wisard 88, Vila Madalena (3032 4295). Open 6pm-midnight Wed-Fri, noon-midnight Sat; noon-5pm Sun. Main courses R$25-$43.

GERMAN Schnapshaus The checkered tablecloths and Deutschland posters of this family-style tavern have been transporting diners to a land of schnitzel and beer since it first opened in 1977. Try the tender pork in a paprika sauce, which comes with a huge portion of mashed potatoes and rice, or the best dish on the menu: paprika schnitzel. Many of the main courses will easily feed two.

Here at the slightly more upmarket Lanchonete da Cidade, it’s all about the burgers, with the succulent Bom Bom most in demand – a 220g churrasco-style burger with homemade tomato sauce. For vegetarians, the delicious mushroom-and-grilled-vegetable burger is a treat. Paulistanos swear by the batatas rústicas – crispy fried discs of crunchy potato scattered with rosemary and cloves of sweet, juicy garlic. Alameda Tietê 110, Jardim Paulista (3086 3399/ lanchonetedacidade.com.br). Metrô 2, Consolação. Open noon-1am Mon-Thu; noon-3am Fri, Sat; noon-1am Sun. Main courses R$14.50-$41. Other locations Rua Amauri 334, Itaim Bibi; Shopping Higienópolis, Avenida Higienópolis 674, Higienópolis; Shopping Morumbi, Avenida Magalães de Castro 12.000, Morumbi; Avenida Macuco 355, Moema. FRENCH Marcel The lone weak point of this excellent restaurant is its location inside a tasteless block of short-let flats. But get past that and you’ll be presented with a set of unforgettable dishes, superbly executed by chef Raphael Despirite. A starter of frogs’ legs in garlic cream is a case in point; as are the impeccable soufflés – whether they be of the smoky seafood variety, or a sweet dessert soufflé of cupuaçu – just some of the unusual dishes that make this fine restaurant such a memorable experience. Rua da Consolação 3555, Jardim Paulista (3064 3089/marcelrestaurante.com. br). Open noon-2.30pm, 7pm-midnight Mon-Fri; 7pm-midnight Sat; 12.30-3pm, 7-11pm Sun. Main courses R$39-$107; lunch R$42-$48; couvert R$7.80-$12.80.

SPANISH Eñe The Brazilian capital

of gastronomy was still aching for a signature Spanish addition as recently as 2007, when the twin brothers Sergio and Javier Torres Martinez from Barcelona stepped onto the culinary scene with this small, high-quality, Catalan-influenced restaurant. All concrete and dark wood on the outside, inside the space is sleek lines and smooth surfaces. The restaurant’s preoccupation with beauty extends to the food – the menu’s selection of fish and vibrant vegetables with bold Spanish spices are all beautifully presented. Don’t miss the pecan pie – a great example of the robust flavours the twins are famed for. Rua Dr. Mário Ferraz 213, Jardim Europa (3816 4333/enerestaurante.com.br). Open noon-3pm, 7pm-midnight Mon-Thu; noon-3pm, 7pm-1am Fri; 1pm-4pm, 8pm1am Sat. Main courses R$48-$68; lunch R$47; couvert R$15.

the middle. Spot is an enduring Sampa favourite – so come prepared to wait, over a drink at the bar or outside on the terrace, for a table in the thick of the action, in amongst the chattering diners. On our last visit, the mignon de porco (pork tenderloin) with mini onions, red pepper and mini tomatoes was tangy, crispy and gloriously meaty. Alameda Ministro Rocha Azevedo 72, Bela Vista (3284 6131/restaurantespot. com.br). Metrô 2, Trianon-Masp and Consolação. Open noon-3pm; 8pm-1am Mon-Sat. Main courses R$34-$71.

For fans of ultra-spicy food, the Chinese–Peruvian restaurant Chifa Wok presents the Bruce Lee challenge: eat the plate of stir-fried chicken with peanuts, vegetables and a mix of Chinese and Peruvian chillis without drinking anything for three minutes after you’ve finished, and the R$30 dish is yours for free. Offer only available in the evenings. See listings. ITALIAN Mercearia do Conde A tumble

down the rabbit hole might – just might – prepare you for Mercearia do Conde. The ceiling groans under a collection of bewinged angels and pink, wand-bearing fairies that gently rotate overhead, while the plates are gaily and wantonly mismatched. The food can be good, but is occasionally patchy and errs a little on the conventional side. The chicken pie has long been a favourite of ours; but last time, pluckier, we went for duck with rice ‘old Lisbon style’, which came with shredded duck, cooked pear pieces and a dusting of garam masala – good and homely, but not revving up the taste buds too much. Rua Joaquim Antunes 217, Jardim Paulistano (3081 7204/ merceariadoconde.com.br). Open noon4pm, 7pm-midnight Mon-Wed; noonmidnight Thu; noon-1am Fri; 12.30pm1am Sat; 12.30-11pm Sun. Main courses R$39-$85; lunch R$45.

MEXICAN Obá There is a serious lack of decent Mexican food in São Paulo – no doubt because of the serious lack of Mexicans. Restaurateur Hugo Delgado solves both problems: he’s a living, breathing chilango from Mexico City and, though sometimes hampered by inaccessibility to certain ingredients, he does a fabulous job on the portion of Obá’s menu that’s dedicated to his homeland – the carnitas (braised pork tacos), refried beans, guacamole and margaritas. The kitchen also sends out an array of Thai, Italian and Brazilian dishes to the convivial tables in this colourfully converted Jardins home. Rua Melo

Alves 205, Jardim Paulista (3086 4774/ obarestaurante.com.br). Open noon-3pm, 8pm-midnight Mon-Thu; noon-3pm, 8pm-1am Fri; 1-4.30pm, 8pm-1am Sat; 1-4.30pm Sun. Main courses R$39.90$67; lunch R$21.90. ITALIAN Primo Basílico Well-heeled

families wait patiently for tables on Sunday evenings at this popular yet relaxed spot, taking the edge off their hunger with bread stuffed with oozing buffalo cream cheese and zingy calabresa. The restaurant is buzzing most other nights too, though getting a table doesn’t pose such a problem. Three tables outside offer an al fresco option, though most of the action is inside, where you can see the pizzas sliding in and out of a huge brick oven. The traditional pizza bases are ciabatta-esque – thick and doughy – or there’s a thin crust option too. Committed carnivores should go for an Obelix, whose wild-boar sausage will satisfy any self-respecting Gaul. Avenida Gabriel Monteiro da Silva 1864, Jardim América (3082 8027/ primobasilico.com.br). Open 6pm12.30am Mon-Thu; 6pm-1.30am Fri, Sat; 6pm-12.30am Sun. Main courses R$48-$63.

INTERNATIONAL Spot If São Paulo has a definitive see-and-be-seen restaurant, it’s Spot, one of the city’s hands-down classic restaurants. It’s centrally located – a handy place for lunch if you’re on Avenida Paulista – and decorated brightly and stylishly, if simply, with all-round windows and a circular bar in

Asian businessmen, slick paulistanos and the odd tourist fill the rows of this singular sushi restaurant. A capsule of oriental perfection, Sushiguen is the perfect escape from the bustling thoroughfare of nearby Avenida Paulista. Serving up the finest fish for more than 35 years, sushi man Shimizu is clearly doing something right – and we can attest to it. Try the tirashi (R$40$77), a fish salad in which several types of fish – including salmon, tuna and sea urchins – are placed with geometric precision atop a bed of rice in a bowl. Avenida Brigadeiro Luís Antônio 2367, Jardim Paulista (3289 5566). Metrô 2, Brigadeiro. Open 11.30am-2.30pm, 6-11pm Mon-Sat. Prices two sushi pieces from R$10-$17.50; lunch menu R$24-R$40.

Jewish Z Deli This run-of-the-mill albeit charming deli, with just a handful of tables and a self-service counter full of delicious salads, is Jewish dining at its best. Gefilte fish can be had here not just on Passover, but all year round; or for another taste of Eastern-European cuisine, try the vareniks – breaded meats and fish. The roasted chicken (Z Deli frango) and the cheese gnocchi aren’t to be missed, either. If you have the time and the appetite opt for the all-you-caneat buffet (R$45, or R$39 for just salad; R$55 on Saturdays), rather than the lunch menu (three hot dishes for R$39). And while the prices may be steep, this is the closest you’ll get to Katz’s Deli outside of Manhattan. Alameda Gabriel Monteiro da Silva 1350, Jardim Paulistano (3064 3058). Open noon-6pm Mon-Fri; noon4.30pm Sat. Buffet R$39-$55; set menu R$30-$39. ITALIAN Zucco A floor-to-ceiling glass

exterior gives a sneak preview of the sleek, modern interior of this Italian restaurant. Weather permitting, the windows slide right back to create an alfresco terrace backed by a vertical garden. The broad menu offers a modern take on traditional Italian cuisine: to start, tuck into the paper-thin focaccia, with rock salt and rosemary. Fresh pasta is a good choice for a main course – try the squid ink taglioni with shrimps and clams. If there’s a queue for a table, pull up a stool at the bar and sip a glass of bubbly from the comprehensive wine list, or a Zucco Martini, with strawberry, vanilla-flavoured vodka and a balsamic vinegar reduction. Rua Haddock Lobo 1416, Jardim Paulista (3897 0666/ zuccorestaurante.com.br). Metrô 2, Consolação. Open noon-12.30am MonThu; noon-1am Fri, Sat; noon-midnight Sun. Main courses R$39-$89; lunch R$52; couvert R$12.90.

ITALIAN A Tal da Pizza It started down

a dirt track – an out-of-town, family-run pizzeria with no cutlery, no waiters, and a cult following among SP’s elite. A Tal da Pizza’s city progeny is an altogether different setup, and its Louis XV-style chairs and velvet sofas are a far cry from country simplicity. The pizza is good, including adventurous combos like the Scaramouche, with aubergine, raisins, prunes, peppers, mozzarella and cashew nuts. On our Thursday night visit, we were among just a handful of diners. Perhaps paulistanos know where to get pizza that’s just as good, for less, elsewhere. Either way, roll up your sleeves – it’s faithful to the original, so you won’t find any cutlery here – and dig in. Rua Doutor Mario Ferraz 351, Itaim Bibi (3079 3599/ataldapizza.com.br).

BARBECUE Barbacoa Priced on a

par with Fogo do Chão, the city’s other top rodízio (all-you-can-eat) meat-athon, Barbacoa isn’t cheap, but its range and quality of both cuts and creatures, including fish and wild boar, is outstanding. While many churrascarias have all the ambience of an airport lounge, the gentlemen’s club-esque atmosphere here, with an abundance of dark wood and leather armchairs, adds to the sense of self-indulgence, and the bar is a cosy spot for a pre-dinner caipirinha.

Mediterranean Di Bistrot Only the

most unobservant of diners will fail to notice the eclectic, and at times kitsch, decor as they step through the door at this Itaim restaurant. Think leopard print upholstery, cup-and-saucer chandeliers and a profusion of art. The eccentric personality of the original chef, Cassio Machado, is imprinted quite literally on the walls – the decor and showcase of paulistano art was created in homage to Brazilian artist Di Cavalcanti. The main attraction though is the outstanding food created by Mariana Fonseca, the new chef and owner, who has taken inspiration from Portugal and Greece, where she worked for many years. Be transported straight to a Greek taverna with the outstanding polvo grelhado – grilled octopus with paprika. Rua Jacurici 27, Itaim Bibi (3079 9098/dibistrot.com.br).

Trattoria, Buffet, Wine Cellar, Bar and Whisky Club

STEAKHOUSE North Vila Nova The original North Grill, built years ago in Shopping Frei Caneca, recently opened a glamorous branch in the increasingly gourmet Vila Nova Conceição – one of the city’s most expensive neighbourhoods. Despite the surrounding competition, North Grill holds its own thanks to a solid selection of premium beef, including Australian cuts and Wagyu – Japanese cattle prized for their tender meat and marbled fat. Leather seats, wood floors and an abudance of indoor foliage add up to a pleasant interior. And the prices aren’t as eye-watering as you might expect, with the set-lunch menu a particularly tempting deal. Rua Jacques Félix 365, Vila Nova Conceição (3044 4885/northvilanova.com.br). Open 11.30am-3.30pm, 7-11pm Tue-Fri; 11.30am-11.30pm Sat; 11.30am-6pm Sun. Main courses R$34.50-$95; lunch R$49; couvert R$15. AMERICAN P.J. Clarke’s Longing for the Big Apple? You can track down a karaoke bar in Liberdade and butcher a few stanzas of ‘New York, New York’, or hit this São Paulo clone of the famous Manhattan establishment once frequented by Frank Sinatra. The NYC original created the ‘Cadillac’ burger, which was not only a favourite of the Chairman of the Board but also of Marilyn Monroe. PJ Clarke’s attempts to recreate (quite successfully) the postwar glory years sanctum of American authenticity, with tables draped in redchecked cloth – the old-style diner even had its chandeliers shipped over from New York. The ambience fits the home fries and the delicate onion rings perfectly. For dessert, the strawberry and raspberry cheesecake is exceptional, and short of flying 11 hours to Junior’s in Brooklyn, you won’t find anything else quite like it. Rua Doutor Mário Ferraz 568, Itaim Bibi (3078 2965/pjclarkes. com.br). Open noon-midnight Mon-Thu; noon-1am Fri; noon-1am Sat; 9.30ammidnight Sun. Main courses R$26$47; lunch R$37.

A space for Italian cuisine and culture

Eden. Narrow and tall, the dining space at Kaá is dominated by a spectacular 8m-high and 70m-long wall covered in more than 7,000 plants native to Brazil’s Atlantic forest. Architect Arthur Casas’s aim here was to transport the diner away from the urban chaos: once inside, there’s no visual connection with the city outside. To get the full experience of rainforest elegance, a table outside must be reserved in advance. Avenida Juscelino Kubitschek 279, Vila Olímpia (3045 0043/ kaarestaurante.com.br).

We loved the first run of the Feirinha Gastronômica – a series of Sunday food fairs with chefs and amateur enthusiasts alike serving up dishes. The only downside was the tight squeeze in a charmless car park in Vila Madalena. The food fairs are coming back, only this time bigger (with 30 stalls on rotation each Sunday) and better located – in a space with a retractable cover in the leafy Praça Benedito Calixto,

best known for its Saturday afternoon flea market. Over the first few Sundays you’ll be able to try gnocchi (R$15) from the team behind Italian restaurants Per Paolo, macaroons (R$4 each) from D’Macarons and Mexican tostadas (see photo, R$10) from Obá (see listings).

MIDDLE EASTERN Zaatar A bright,

no-frills Lebanese eatery, Zaatar doesn’t score too highly in terms of first impressions. The functional space lacks anything in the way of warmth or charm, but its location just a stone’s throw from the Kinoplex shopping complex make it a handy option for the Itaim office crowd. The menu raises the bar with a solid choice of traditional Lebanese snacks, dips, salads, kebabs and sandwiches (including the beirute – the made-in-Brazil-but-never-in-Beirut pitta bread sandwich), all presented on a compact, one-page menu. A good lunch choice is the ‘prato do dia’ (R$25) – a daily-changing midday meal – or a sandwich. For the latter, choose from two types of bread; saj, a flat bread cooked on the eponymous dome-shaped metal ovens just by the front door; or manoushe, a softer, round, baked flat bread. Rua Bandeira Paulista 485, Itaim Bibi (3071 2398/zaatarrestaurante.com. br). Open noon-3pm, 7-11.30pm MonSat; noon-5pm Sun. Main courses R$17-$29.50.

ITALIAN Bráz A typical meal at this awardwinning pizzeria should start with the house-speciality pão de linguiça (warm sausage bread) dipped in spiced-up olive oil followed by any number of outstanding pizzas. There doesn’t appear to be a bad choice on the menu. Rua Graúna 125, Moema (5561 0905/casabraz.com. br). Open 6.30pm-12.30am Mon-Thu; 6.30pm-1.30am Fri, Sat; 6.30pm-12.30am Sun.

MEXICAN Sí Señor This lively Tex-Mex bar is equally popular with couples, big groups and families. The menu varies slightly at each of the chain’s nine branches, but expect the usual cheeseand-bean-based suspects like nachos, tacos and burritos. A lunch buffet lineup adds interest to the menu, while any main course ordered on a Wednesday, Thursday or Sunday evening earns you a voucher to have the same again free on a Monday or Tuesday.

CHINESE Chi Fu Just a quick hop

from Liberdade Metrô lies the recently renovated Chi Fu. The clientele, almost exclusively Chinese, sit at vast tables with a minimum of six diners at each (memo to self: it’s not the spot for a romantic date). There are a paltry 201 dishes to choose from on the telephone-directorysized menu – it’s just that if you can’t speak Mandarin, it’s going to come down to pointing at the images on the menu and hoping for the best. The exotica comes at a price (R$180 or so), but for the mains, Chi Fu is luxuriously cheap. Praça Carlos Gomes 200, Liberdade (3112 1698). Metrô 1, Liberdade.

Critics’ choice Posh pizza

It comes with sweet beef and a huge helping of mushrooms and vegetables, cooked right there at the table (R$85), and is served with an array of side dishes including kimchi (fermented vegetables). Pure shots of Soju (R$24, 360ml bottle), Korea’s national tipple – a kind of smooth saké, distilled from cereals – are de rigueur. Thankfully for your brain cells, the evening session closes early; but Cho Sun Ok also does a weekday executive lunch (R$48) with a spreads of hot and cold dishes chosen by the chef. Avenida da Aclimação 502, Liberdade (3271 9621/3208 2116). Open noon-3pm, 6-10pm Tue-Sun. Main courses R$29$50; lunch R$48. JAPANESE Lamen Kazu Expect to find

the real deal at this Japanese noodle house. The star ingredient used to be imported from Japan until Lamen Kazu’s newer sibling, Espaço Kazu, opened up over the road along with space for the noodles to be made from scratch. Whether it’s a mid-week dinner or a weekend lunch, expect to join a long-ish queue made up of hungry punters of mostly Japanese extraction. Opting for a lessis-more approach, there’s little variation on the menu. First pick your broth (miso, shoyu or salt-based shio) then add optional – and genuinely spicy – chillies, followed by one of three toppings; a generous meat-free pile of carrots, onion and cabbage, or slices of roast pork, or the traditional topping with beansprouts, wakame (seaweed) and spring onions. The accompanying gyoza are fairly unexciting. If you’re visiting on a Sunday, why not head to the Liberdade street market for dessert? Rua Tomaz Gonzaga 51, Liberdade (3277 4286/lamenkazu. com.br). Open 11am-3pm, 6pm-10.30pm Mon-Sat; 11am-3pm, 6pm-9pm Sun. Main courses R$19-$39; accepts only visa credit and debit cards.

Brás, Mooca & Tatuapé PIZZA Castelões This classic Italian restaurant, located in one of the city’s traditional Italian neighbourhoods, was founded in 1924, and its dusty decor and antique pictures give it an authentically nostalgic feel that many newer pizzerias try and fail to copy. The Castelões pizza, with handmade sausage and mozzarella, is recommended, as is the house margherita; but no matter which one you pick, rest assured that the dough will be light, the crust scorched and sensual, and the tomato sauce packed with basil. Rua Jairo Góis 126, Brás (3229 0542). Metrô 3, Brás. Open noon-4pm, 7pm-midnight daily. Main courses R$39-$64; couvert R$9.

The South VEGETARIAN Moinho de Pedra Frustrated vegetarians will be in for a pleasant surprise at Tatiana Cardoso’s elegant restaurant. The word is out about her gourmet take on healthy veggie food, and the lunchtime queues form early. Cardoso combines creativity with seasonal ingredients. Head straight to the counter

where you can choose from one of two daily specials – served with either salad or soup for R$35 or R$45 on Saturdays – or another main course option from the blackboard. White bean stews, grilled courgette tart, and mandioquinha (sweet parsnips) gnocchi with a fresh tomato sauce are just a few of the highlights. Rua Francisco de Morais 227, Santo Amaro (5181 0581/moinhodepedrarestaurante. com.br). Open 8.30-11am, noon-3.30pm Mon-Fri; 9-11am, noon-4pm Sat. Prices set menu R$35-$45.

The North BRAZILIAN O Compadre The Lar

Center shopping mall, which mostly sells furniture, may seem an odd spot to find a restaurant, but O Compadre is popular, nonetheless. During the weekend the vast space packs out with families, and it serves as a handy lunch choice for visitors to the immense, glassy Expo Center Norte convention centre nearby. In contrast, the restaurant’s rustic Brazilian farm theme comes complete with wooden rafters, cow hide-covered bar stools, wagon wheels and a cart by the entrance. Fill up your plate at the buffet – there are sixty dishes, including beans, pastas, moquecas (fish stew) and salads. For grilled meats, order your favourite cut – top sirloin cap (picanha) is a good bet – from the chef manning the charcoal grill at the centre of the buffet. Avenida Otto Baumgart 500, Vila Guilherme (2252 3131/compadre.com. br). Open noon-4pm, 7pm-11.30pm MonFri; noon-midnight Sat; noon-5.30pm. Price buffet R$59.90-$66.90.

STEAKHOUSE Templo da Carne

Bráz Pizza is a serious weekend fixture in São Paulo; so much so that the city’s upscale pizzerias know no bounds when it comes to gourmet toppings. At Bráz, the Caprese (R$73.50) is the best-seller, with buffalo mozzarella, basil, caqui tomatoes, and black olive pesto. Primo Basílico A popular spot for well-heeled families, Primo Basílico pizzas can be split three ways if you want to try different toppings. The Romana (R$69.90) teams Italian alici (sardine-like fillets) with mozzarella while the Brigitte (R$35.90) comes with brie, honey and fresh asparagus. A Tal da Pizza The baby grand and velvet sofas here are the first clues that this isn’t a Hawaiian-with-stuffedcheese-crust kind of pizza place. For a no-expense-spared pizza, go for the Au Champagne (R$80 for 12 slices) with white truffles, mascarpone cheese, poppy seeds and truffle oil.

Marcos Bassi If Brazil still had a monarchy, the late Marcos Bassi just might have been granted a knighthood for making butchery a noble craft. Bassi’s near-encyclopaedic knowledge made him synonymous with top quality meat in São Paulo – he ran courses on the subject, and sold cuts of beef and other Bassi-branded gourmet products in top supermarkets across town. The restaurant that carries his name serves the signature dishes fraldinha (flank steak), as well as bom-bom (a cut taken from the heart of a rump steak). Rua Treze de Maio 668, Bela Vista (3805 4284/marcosbassi.com.br). Open noon-midnight Mon-Sat; noon-6pm Sun. Main courses R$58-$78; couvert R$18.18.

Brooklin, Morumbi & Berrini INDIAN Govinda It’s Krishna by way of

Lisboa at this classic dining spot, situated snugly in the middle of a residential area. The 30-year-old Govinda represents an interesting mixture of Luso-Brazilian architecture and Indian decor. The ceiling is supported by open wooden beams (in a former 19th-century life, the house was a grease-processing factory), while sumptuous sub-continent furniture occupies the various rooms. The couvert is a great start for the meal; eight different sauces with the house bread. You can’t

There’s no lack of choice when it comes to cosy cafés in Vila Madalena. And if you’re willing to spend a bit extra on a cup of decent coffee and a Wi-Fi hookup, the choice has become all the greater of late, with a raft of gourmet bakerycum-cafés opening in the last year or so. Passing through the Vila recently, in the mood for a posh coffee and with an hour to kill, we stopped in at one such place – Le Pain Quotidien – an upmarket Belgian chain that has gone from zero to four SP branches in less than a year. Free Wi-Fi in a bright, airy space? Check. Neutral jazz on the stereo? Check. Large communal table full of cappuccinos and PowerBooks, and creative types fiddling on Facebook and pretending it’s work? Those, too. Plus, in true SP style, valet parking at the door. Heading inside past stacks of pastries and beautiful, crusty loaves of bread, a glance at the price of the jars of nut and chocolate spreads on the shelves was a little sobering – R$39.90 – with jams from R$22.90. But we were in luck: verging on lunchtime, it was nevertheless still officially breakfast at Le Pain (until noon, or 3pm at weekends), and each table was laid with a selection of the aforementioned spreads to go with breakfast choices such as toast with ham and Emmental cheese (R$10.90), and a basket of breads, croissant or pain au chocolat, with orange juice and a hot drink (R$22). We ordered a basket of assorted slices of bread (R$13.90 for two), and dipped in to try the spreads. Rhubarb jam: very sugary, but also nicely rich and tart. Hazelnut spread: sumptuously nutty and delicious. White chocolate spread: horribly over-sweet, with little of the warmth and unctuousness of white chocolate. The list of ingredients on the jar, in order of quantity, was enough to explain that one: ‘Sugar, vegetable oil, skimmed milk powder, whey powder, white chocolate (7%)’.

The organic breads and gourmet coffee at Le Pain Quotidien may just be worth the high price tag, says Claire Rigby

garnished with a salad with only the vaguest suggestion of a dressing. Looking on the bright side, though, the service was thoughtful and attentive, and the space just lovely, with an immense mirror soaring up the wall opposite the mezzanine space overhead. The cappuccino (R$6.50) was just as it should be – free of the chocolate sludge you sometimes find at the bottom of cappuccinos here in Brazil, and served in a très français handleless bowl. The bread, the flagship product, and on sale by the loaf or half loaf, is simply delicious – don’t miss the raisin and nut flute; and the lunch we saw beginning to be served up around us looked amazing. We’ll be back to try it again, PowerBooks and all. Rua Wisard 138, Vila Madalena (3031 6977/lepainquotidien.com.br). Open 7am-10pm Mon-Sat, 8am10pm Sun.

Centro, Luz & Bom Retiro Amigo Leal Germans originally popularised beer in Brazil, and this wood-panelled bar has a credible Rhine River feel. The name means ‘loyal friend’, and the businessmen who’ve been coming to relax here after a hard day’s work in the city centre for decades would no doubt agree. Quality draught beer, pastéis and German dishes like Eisbein (pigs’ knees) and Kassler (pork chops) are all on the cards. Rua Amaral Gurgel 165, República (3223 6873/amigoleal. com.br). Metrô 3, República. Open 4pm-1am Mon-Fri; noon-1am Sat; 5pmmidnight Sun. Prices chope R$5.40; caipirinha R$11. Rose Velt Taking its name from Praça Roosevelt – the recently remodelled square opposite – Rose Velt has become a hangout for students, actors and creative types. Not surprisingly, given its location next to the intimate Espaço Parlapatões theatre. Inside, dim lights and other interesting decor details include a street surface recreated along one wall, complete with chunks of pavement and manhole covers, lending a trash-chic edge. Go on Wednesday nights for live music or any night to sample one of more than 120 types of cachaça, served straight up or in a caipirinha – we love the perfectly spiced chilli one. Praça Franklin Delano Roosevelt 124b, Consolação (3129 5498/rosevelt.com. br). Open 7pm-12.30am Tue; 6.30pm12.30am Wed, Thu; 7pm-2.30am Fri; 8pm-2.30am Sat; 7-11.30pm Sun.

Consolação & Higienópolis Papillon de Nuit Soft lighting glows from the chandeliers, casting a lustrous sheen on the scarlet wallpaper and transporting the clientele to what could be a sultry nightspot in the bohemian Parisian neighbourhood of Pigalle. This is the intimate setting of charming Papillon de Nuit, conveniently located in the buzz of Consolação, but just far C enough away from Rua Augusta to avoid the chaos. The menu may be simple, M but the nibbles are tasty, making it the perfect spot for a drink and catch up Y with friends, or a post-cinema pitstop.

Suíte Savalas It’s a curious facet of modern life that anything from the K ’70s is cool. Especially if it was on TV. Cashing in on that trend, the name of Greek-American actor Aristotelis ‘Telly’ Savalas, best known for starring in the ’70s crime drama Kojak, is the moniker of choice of this bar, while inside, photos of cult TV shows and films adorn the walls. But cinematic references aside, what Suíte Savalas is really all about is being a New York-style, no-nonsense bar – eminently welcome in a city with such a gaping void between pavement boteco and upwardly mobile, designer lounge poncery. The low red lights and clean-without-beingpristine interior fill up with a young, agreeably mixed bunch of customers. We like. Rua Mato Grosso 398, Consolação (3259 4355). Open 9pm-3am WedSat. Prices small bottle beer R$6.50; caipirinha R$15; cover R$15. Volt Sunglasses are in order at this fashionable joint: after the city banned ‘visual pollution’ in the form of outdoor ads and signs, proprietor Facundo Guerra bought neon lights from local brothels and placed them in the bar, hence the name. The variation on the margarita here is delicious: a reduction of ginger and passion fruit juice replaces lemon juice. Rua Haddock Lobo 40, Consolação (2936 4041/barvolt.com.br). Metrô 2, Consolação.

Lapa, Perdizes & Barra Funda Lebowski This cosy Barra Funda bar crams in as many references to the 1998 Coen brothers movie, The Big Lebowski, as possible, from bowling-pin lights to an alley-styled bar counter, and most important of all, a menu dedicated to the white russian. Those who aren’t partial to The Dude’s milky-coffee cocktail of choice can pick from a solid selection of other vodka-based drinks, and even some vodka-based twists on other classics, such as the (rumless) vodka mojito. Take ten steps into this bar and you’ll have already scoped out the entire space. But while it may be small, there’s still room for a tiny, darkened dancefloor, where DJs spin a loud post-hipster soundtrack from the back of the house. Rua Barra Funda 1070, Barra Funda (lebowskisp.com.br). Open 11pm-5am Fri-Sat. Prices small bottle beer R$7,50; caipiroska R$16. No credit cards. Pie in the Sky Pie-man turned restaurateur Ryk Preen opened this restaurant-cum-bar in 2009, incorporating his former pie shop in to the package. Preen serves up what is arguably the best fish’n’chips in São Paulo (R$40, weekends only), but what’s also a delight is the variety of lamb on the menu, with options including lamb shanks and mutton burger. Other classic Brisith dishes include beef Wellington and bangers and mash. The only downside? No British beer. Rua Ministro Gastão Mesquita 234,

Vila Madalena & Pinheiros Bar do Biu You could easily miss this low-key boteco, unless it’s a Saturday afternoon, when crowds spill out the door. Quench your thirst here after a trip to the Benedito Calixto market, or a nose around Choque Cultural, just a few steps away. Be prepared to wait for a table outside, or head inside to grab a table in a space adorned with football team strips. Don’t miss the famed baião de dois (from R$28) – a north-eastern buttery rice dish studded with jerky. Rua Cardeal Arcoverde 776, Pinheiros (3081 6739/ bardobiu.com.br). Open 11am-10pm Mon-Sat; 11am-6pm Sun. Prices small bottle beer R$5; caipirinha R$10. Cervejaria Nacional No beer in São Paulo travels a shorter distance from barrel to glass than at this microbrewery-cum-bar. Sit at the counter on the first floor overlooking the vast fermentation tanks below, or head up to the top-floor dining area for a cosier spot. If you like beer, go the whole hog with the degustação (R$19.90) – a 150ml sampler of all five of the home brews – a weiss beer, a lager, an India pale ale (IPA), a brown ale and a stout. Friendly service and good food make

this an excellent choice for a group night out: go for the live jazz on Tuesday nights and blues on Thursdays. Avenida Pedroso de Morais 604, Pinheiros (3628 5000/cervejarianacional.com.br).

Jardins Baretto Low-lit and elegant, with comfy leather chairs and shiny wooden tables, Baretto is as chic as the hotel in which it’s housed. Everything about it, from the spot-on service to the well-curated roster of musicians who keep the MPB, jazz and bossa nova flowing, screams Fasano – the hotel and the family who, with half a century of practice, have become arguably the finest hoteliers in Brazil.

Bottagallo It’s easy to be misled by the huddles of people outside, relaxing on the long benches with a beer or standing around chatting. Well-fed diners, you conclude, having a post-meal smoke. But no. They’re waiting; and happily – because the wait is well worth it. Kick off with one of the no-fuss house cocktails to get things going – the Vesper martini, with a hint of lemon, is a good call, whether piccolo (R$18) or regular (R$23). Once inside and settled at one of the rustic wooden tables, just let the efficient, friendly waiters keep the cold chope coming, and order a plate or two of the delicious, made-for-sharing tapas.

Cervejaria Nacional Two limited-edition winter beers are currently on tap at this microbrewery-cum-bar; Saravá Imperial Stout and Pé de Bode, a strong, malty German-style lager. Try them before the barrels are drunk dry (R$17 per pint). Melograno This gourmet beer bar has a nerdy attention to detail. For cold evenings, they recommend Fuller’s London Porter (R$27 for 500 ml) or Colorado Quattro (R$59.90 for 500 ml) – a seasonal dark beer celebrating the four year anniversary of the São Paulo craft brewer.

And with smart waiters in flat caps buzzing around with trays of chopes, it wouldn’t seem out of place if Mad Men’s Don Draper were to walk in, light up a ciggie and order himself a whisky.

Ibirapuera & Moema Bar Ao Vivo This charming little nightspot is somewhere between dark jazz bar and cheerful little pub, and as its name – which roughly translates as Live Music Bar – suggests, it’s a good place to catch musicians doing their thing. And those can include respected Brazilian performers like bossa nova veterans Zimba Trio. For drinks, try the chef’s martini, made with premium vodka, Cointreau and Blue Curaçao. Rua Inhambu 229, Moema (5052 0072/aovivomusic.com.br). Open 7pm-2am Mon-Sat. Prices chope R$5.50; caipirinha R$15.90; cover R$10-$40.

Liberdade, Bela Vista & Vila Mariana Veloso The renowned caipirinhas at this friendly boteco live up to the hype, with weird and wonderful flavours mixed up by barman Souza and his crew. Go for the jabuticaba (a grape-like fruit), or the tangerine with chilli peppers, but give the bland pomegranate (romã) with lime a miss. There’s limited space inside, so expect to wait for a seat, or settle for standing-room on the pavement outside, next door to the extraordinary Sabesp water-tank building. The plump yet delicate bolinhos de bacalhau make the perfect accompaniment to the caipirinhas, as do the creamy coxinhas (chicken croquettes), which are so good you may even feel inclined to buy one of the bar’s ‘Soy Loko por Coxinha’ T-shirts. Hopefully not though. Rua Conceição Veloso 56, Vila Mariana (5572 0254/ velosobar.com.br). Open 5.30pm12.30am Tue-Fri; 12.45pm-12.30am Sat; 4-11pm Sun. Prices chope R$5.30; caipirinha R$15.

Go early on a sunny afternoon and bag a table outside on the square overlooking the church. Kick things off with the infamous chicken and catupiry coxinha. Beer lovers should try one of the beer-tasting menus, which meander through Brazilian, British and even rare Trappist beers. Each one is served at the right temperature and in the correct shape of glass. Consider lining your stomach first with a frango completo – a spit-roast chicken served with polenta, farofa and salad.

Sharing the same stretch of street as upscale boutiques, residential high-rises and a stalwart bakery Dengosa (see Café listings), Poeira, is an eye-catching newcomer to Jardins, its pink neon sign glowing against a façade of dark grey walls. Blending interiors store and design consultancy, it’s the design dream of Portuguese interior designer Mónica Penaguião, and a far cry from her first store which she opened aged just fifteen, in Lisbon, back in 1981. ‘It was in a place that was lent to me by my uncle,’ says Penaguião. ‘I sold everything from buttons to tables and sofas. The only thing that mattered to me was that I liked it.’ Fast forward thirty-two years and Penaguião pours the same passion today into what has become an international brand; Poeira opened in Rio de Janeiro in 2010, and Maputo in Mozambique, and São Paulo, last year. Exposed, white-brick walls, sliced through by green-wallpapered columns, are the bright, airy canvas for the quirky collection on display in the São Paulo store. Penaguião’s own trademark pieces – distressed white timber tables and kitchen units – can be found alongside sofas, wallpaper, lamps and cushions, designed by international and Brazilian designers. High-end, imported pieces mean high prices. We’re talking up to R$2,300 per metre for Missoni fabrics, for example. Brazilian-designed pieces go for less, though there’s no such thing as a bargain when it comes to designer interiors. We love the eccentric chairs made from skateboards from Rio designers Studio Zanini – the limited edition pieces come in at R$5,480. And the cheeky Lux Gstaad chairs, by Italian design house Fornasetti, with watchful eyes peering out from beneath bobble-topped balaclavas. Though at R$27,000 each, you’ll want to make sure your guests sit sensibly on them. Look out for the work of another imaginative Italian designer, Gaetano Pesce – his resin vases look like glass until you squeeze them,

Malls & markets

PRESS IMAGE

Center 3 Thanks to its location on the iconic Avenida Paulista, this mall draws legions of visitors to its four floors for a quick fix of lunchtime shopping or to take advantage of its many services – think tailors, shoe repairers, watch repairers, key cutters, hairdressers, banks and more. The mall has reinvented itself by bringing back some of the glamour its cinemas had back in the 1970s; the spacious but antiquated Cine Bristol is now the modern Multiplex Bristol, with seven screens. There’s also a food court with more than thirty eating options, including the sweets and cakes to accompany a good cup of coffee at Cristallo. Avenida Paulista 2064, Consolação (3285 2458/shoppingcenter3. com.br). Open 8am-10pm Mon-Fri; 10am-10pm Sat; 10am-10pm Sun and holidays. Eldorado This mall’s previous incarnation was as a branch of a 1980s department store, and those powershoulder-pad days still haunt the place, at least in terms of the interior design. Eldorado’s two basement levels cater to every need, from dog grooming to cellphone repairs; or for a bit of light, chilly relief from consumption, conspicuous or otherwise, one of the only permanent ice-skating rinks in town is located in the second basement (R$35 for 30 minutes). Avenida Rebouças 3970, Jardim Paulistano (2197 7800/ shoppingeldorado.com.br). Open 10am10pm Mon-Sat; 11am-10pm Sun. Hours at shops, bars and restaurants vary. Frei Caneca Located close to Avenida Paulista, this mall is at the heart of São Paulo and is famous not only for marketing culture, but also for generating it – amongst its numerous shops, nine cinemas and two theatres, it also hosts events and conferences, and has a professional drama school named after Wolf Maya, one of Brazil’s most prestigious soap opera directors. Its cinema is known for being eclectic, with national and international movies on the menu, whether commercial or cult. The food court tends to get a bit crowded at lunchtime, so you might find yourself sharing a table. Rua Frei Caneca 569, Consolação (3472 2000/ freicanecashopping.com.br). Metrô 2, Consolação. Open 10am-10pm Mon-Sat; 2-8pm Sun. Hours at shops, bars and restaurants vary. Galeria Ouro Fino São Paulo’s wealthier alternative crowd heads to this gallery. There are tattoo studios, lingerie shops and hairdressers; and above all, there are small-scale designer shops selling creative or unusual outfits like US Army-inspired fatigues at the appropriately named US Army. Rua Augusta 2690, Jardim Paulista (3082

Getting a leg up Andarilhas

The artsy all-rounder Camila Nuñez – a self-described stylist, fashion producer, actress and designer – has just launched a collection of hand-painted tights, ‘Andarilhas’. Nuñez has always been a fan of customising her own tights, but is only now selling her creations. Each pair is unique, with styles ranging from Jackson Pollock-esque besplattered monochromatics to vibrant tie-dye stripes. R$55 each. Available by emailing nunez.camila@gmail.com or calling 98415 1194. 7860/galeriaourofino.com.br). Metrô 2, Consolação. Open 8am-8pm Mon-Sat. Galeria do Rock A haven for rockers and emos, affectionately known as ‘emoland’ by city satirists, the Galeria do Rock is a collection of 450 shops, 190 of them dedicated to the various facets of the music scene. CDs, vinyl, T-shirts, accessories, flags and posters – you name it, it’s here and it’s ready to rock. The bottom floor is dedicated solely to hip hop and ‘black music’, as Brazilians term it. The prices are lower than at equivalent speciality shops in other areas around the city; and on Saturdays, a battalion of teenage rockers invades. Rua 24 de Maio 62, Centro (3337 6277). Metrô 3, República. Open 10am-6.30pm Mon-Fri; 10am-6pm Sat. Ibirapuera One of the biggest shopping centres in town, Ibirapuera has more than 400 stores plus a gourmet food area. Charming small shops can also be found outside the mall, on avenidas BemTe-Vi and Gaivota, and ruas Pavão and Normandia. Avenida Ibirapuera 3103, Moema (5095 2300/ibirapuera.com. br). Open 10am-10pm Mon-Sat; 11am10pm Sun. Hours at stores, bars and restaurants vary.

Iguatemi This, the city’s oldest shopping centre, still manages to hold its own in terms of sophistication and class, despite a rash of new high-class malls. Emporio Armani, Louis Vuitton and Ermenegildo Zegna are just some of the designer dreams on display, while Tiffany & Co has a street-front store on the ground floor. Check out the Brazilian high-fashion shops like Rosa Chá and Maria Bonita, or for slightly more affordable international style, head for Zara and Diesel. Avenida Brigadeiro Faria Lima 2232, Jardim Paulistano (3816 6116/iguatemisaopaulo. com.br). Open 10am-10pm Mon-Sat, food court 11am-10pm; shops 2-8pm Sun. Hours at stores, bars and restaurants vary. JK Iguatemi A two-month delay in the opening of the deluxe new shopping mall JK Iguatemi, the result of its having failed to comply with traffic-calming measures, hasn’t dampened any of its opulence.With its slick, high-shine floors, wood-clad elevators and huge windows that – unusually for a shopping centre – let the light pour in, JK is just what São Paulo’s chic elite will have been expecting from this newest of its many malls. Besides some of the city’s top restaurants (Varanda, Tre Bicchieri) and predictable

synonyms for luxury like Chanel and Bulgari, look out for real coups like the first Brazilian branches of Sephora, and of London’s Topshop and its brother brand, Topman. Avenida Presidente Juscelino Kubitschek 2041,Vila Olímpia (3152 6813/ jkiguatemi.com.br). Open 10.30am-11pm Mon-Fri; 10am-11pm Sat; 11am-10pm Sun. Hours at shops, bars and restaurants may vary. Market Place This is a small, bijou mall that goes for quality, not quantity of stores. A middle-upper-class stamping ground with classy shops and beautiful décor, it also has an excellent food court with a huge variety of options. Go for baby back ribs at Outback, check out Mango’s Smoothies and Brigaderia, and don’t miss the shops Doc Dog and Calvin Klein. Avenida Doutor Chucri Zaidan 902, Brooklin (3048 700/marketplace. com.br). Open 10am-10pm Mon-Sat; 11am-8pm Sun. Hours at stores, bars and restaurants vary. Pátio Higienópolis Located on a pleasantly leafy boulevard in this lovely upmarket neighbourhood, this mall is at first hard to distinguish from the mansions and 1950s residential buildings around it. It’s popular for its branch of the high-end pizza joint Bar des Arts, and brands like Calvin Klein underwear and L’Occitane. Avenida Higienópolis 618, Higienópolis (3823 2300/patiohigienopolis.com.br). Metrô 3, Marechal Deodoro. Open 10am-10pm Mon-Sat; 11am-8pm Sun & holidays. Hours at stores, bars and restaurants vary. Pátio Paulista The largest mall on Avenida Paulista is home to chains like Zara, Luigi Bertolli and Hering. The sleek interior appeals to Avenida Paulista businessmen, primarily for midday trips to the food court, while kids flock to its small three-screen movie theatre. Rua Treze de Maio 1947, Paraíso (3191 1100/shoppingpaulista.com.br). Metrô 2 & 1, Paraíso. Open 10am-10pm MonSat, 11am-8pm Sun & holidays. Hours at stores, bars and restaurants vary. Top Center After being acquired in 2007 by one of the biggest shopping centre groups in the country, Top Center has had a facelift and become a pleasant, modernised option for those in search of shopping options around Avenida Paulista. On the ground floor, Starbucks attracts a young crowd in search of great coffee and a good Wi-Fi connection. Casual urban fashion is catered for by stores such as M.Officer, Any Any, AnaCapri and Hering, amongst others. Services handy for tourists include a Bureau de Change, car rental (Localiza) and travel agencies (CVC and H.I.S. Turismo). You’ll find all the standard fast food outlets (Subway, Viena, McDonald’s, Rizzo, Spoleto, Giraffas, Divino Fogão, among others) and there’s even a good Japanese restaurant, Miyabi. Avenida Paulista 854, Bela Vista (3145 1819/ topcentershopping.com.br). Open 9am9pm Mon-Sat; noon-6pm Sun and holidays. Food court open 11am-9pm; shops noon-6pm.

IN THE AREA

Shopping areas Bom Retiro The shopping streets in Bom Retiro, especially along Rua José Paulino, Rua Ribeiro de Lima and Rua Aimorés, are incredibly popular with those looking for bargain-priced clothes. While the majority of the stores are wholesale, some do sell retail. Try to avoid going on Fridays and Saturdays, when the pavements are so crowded that you’d frequently be better off walking on top of the cars. Brás Ruas Oriente, Maria Marcolina and Silva Teles are at the centre of this, the country’s biggest clothing market, said to be worth around R$7 billion. Its 55 streets have turned what used to be an industrial area into a wholesale district, but retail sales are also possible, mostly on Saturdays, on Rua Oriente in particular. Come on a Tuesday and meet the sacoleiros (bag people) who come from all over the country to sell their wares, or check out Latin America’s biggest wholesale mall, Mega Polo Moda (Rua Barão de Ladário 566-670 (3311 2800/megapolomoda.com.br). Largo da Concórdia, Brás (2694 0823/alobras. com.br). Metrô 3, Brás. Open 8am-5pm Mon-Fri; 8am-2pm Sat. . Jardim Paulista (the area most commonly known as ‘Jardins’) National and international designer stores are concentrated here, especially along the ultra-chic Rua Oscar Freire, Alameda Lorena, Rua Bela Cintra and Rua Haddock Lobo. Shops are open from Monday to Saturday, generally from 9am or 10am to 7pm or 8pm. Some of them may also be open on Sundays, especially on the busiest blocks of Rua Oscar Freire, between Rua Melo Alves and Rua Augusta. Pinheiros & Vila Madalena In Pinheiros, antiques stores rule around Rua Cardeal Arcoverde and Praça Benedito Calixto. Not far from there, in Vila Madalena, Rua Aspicuelta, Rua Girassol and Rua Harmonia are home to boutiques and used clothing stores, with the surrounding streets well worth an explore too. Rua da Consolação Located on the Jardins side of Avenida Paulista, this is the street for the city’s best vintage clothing stores as well as some excellent boutiques. If you cross over Avenida Paulista and head towards the centre of the city, you’ll find yourself passing the sparkling lights of São Paulo’s biggest concentration of lighting shops, before you hit Consolação cemetery. Rua 25 de Março Roughly 3,000 shops fill this outdoor market, concentrated in only eight city blocks, where everything from computer games to underwear and watches can be found. More than 400,000 people work and shop here every day. Around Christmas, the number grows to one million shoppers. Don’t forget to also have a look around inside of nearby shopping centres like Mundo Oriental (Rua Barão de Duprat 323, (3229 8089/ mundooriental.com.br) and Galeria Pagé (Rua Barão de Duprat 315, (32 27 3582/ galeriapage.com.br).

Art & Museums Welcome to Tijuana

Top table A whimsical stall offering works of printed art at the first Feira de Arte Impressa do Tijuana in 2009

Built in 1953 by Bom Retiro’s immigrant Eastern European Jewish community as a living monument to victims of the Holocaust, the building functioned as a social and cultural hub, hosting innovative dance, political theatre and the

offices of a newspaper, Nossa Voz. During Brazil’s military dictatorship, the Casa do Povo came under scrutiny when it regularly held debates, invited voices of dissent and sheltered those suffering political persecution.

The centre’s founding organisation, the Instituto Cultural Israelita Brasileiro, has made sure that the Casa do Povo never closed its doors – it has been continually functioning since its founding, although in various stages of disrepair – but a new interest in paying homage to the founders’ ideals of critical thinking and progressive expression have helped bring the fair to its main space, adding extra energy and arty spirit to the cultural revitalisation of both the building and Bom Retiro.

press image

While there’s plenty to be said about the experience of studying art firsthand in a museum or gallery, there’s an intimacy in having printed works you can take home, continually revisit and study at length. With this idea in mind, the fifth edition of the Feira de Arte Impressa do Tijuana – The Tijuana Fair of Printed Art – brings together forty different publishers offering treasures ranging from conceptual graphic microzines to weighty and sumptuously produced art books and posters. This year’s fair marks the first time since its inception in 2009 that it will take place outside its namesake space within Galeria Vermelho, relocating instead to the neighbourhood of Bom Retiro, where it will occupy a section of the immense Casa do Povo cultural centre as well as the nearby Oficina Oswald de Andrade. There, the event will incorporate workshops on book binding, screen printing and the creation of a huge ‘collective book’ of calligraphy by a team of artists in the building’s reading room. The main draw of the fair is the incredible variety of art available for sale, from publishers ranging from São Paulo-based bigwig Cosac Naify, the highly creative, inventive art books by the indie publishers A Bolha from Rio de Janeiro, and Buenos Aires contemporary art museum La Eñe. But the event also aims to reflect on the importance (or lack thereof) of the printed visual arts: debates led by Capacete Entretenimentos’ educational group Máquina de Escrever (‘typewriter’), the online magazine Maré and nationally-minded Turnê Literária, will focus on critical writing’s place in the visual arts, and the potential of virtual platforms versus expression in traditional print media. Visitors to Tijuana will likely be impressed by both the assortment of publications and by the stunning location of the fair – the Casa do Povo is a renovated work in progress, with historic significance and lofty goals for the future.

Art listings Dust in the wind Instabilidade How to use the listings This section rounds up a selection of the city’s commercial galleries, ordered by area, followed by its museums and cultural centres. Recommended institutions are marked with a .

Butantã Galeria Leme This bare concrete space, originally designed by Paulo Mendes da Rocha, winner of the 2006 Pritzker Prize for architecture, houses a dynamic outfit representing local and international artists, with a special focus on Latin America. At the beginning of 2012, the gallery upped sticks and moved to this new space, two blocks away from its original location. Avenida Valdemar Ferreira 130, Butantã (3093 8184/galerialeme.com) Open 10am-7pm Mon-Fri; 10am-5pm Sat . No credit cards.

Consolação Galeria Vermelho One of the most consistently interesting galleries in São Paulo, 10-year-old Galeria Vermelho sits at the top of imposing Avenida Paulista behind a blank façade that the gallery sometimes uses as a canvas. Inside, in a set of spaces designed by the architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha, the gallery has a well earned reputation for championing emerging artists, investing considerable care and effort into their careers. Rua Minas Gerais 350, Higienópolis (3138 1520/galeriavermelho.com.br). Metrô 2, Consolação. Open 10am-7pm Tue-Fri; 11am-5pm Sat.

Itaim Bibi & Vila Olímpia Casa Triângulo This big, stylish white gallery is strong on Brazilian and international names, unafraid to shock, and doesn’t shy from variety. Founded in 1988, the gallery continues to play an essential part in championing emerging artists, Brazilian and otherwise, and takes part in a number of important international art fairs. Rua Paes de Araújo 77, Itaim Bibi (3167 5621/ casatriangulo.com.br). Open 11am-7pm Tue-Sat. No credit cards. Galeria Marília Razuk Currently based in a highly discreet Itaim location, Marília Razuk has been showing Brazilian and international artists of great stature since 1992. An impressive roster includes the neo-concretist maestro Amilcar de Castro. Rua Jerônimo da Veiga 131, Itaim Bibi (3079 0853/galeriamariliarazuk.com.br)

Hailing from the mining-heavy state of Minas Gerais, the Brazilian artist Lais Myrrha uses a variety of media – from video to sculpture and even photography and cartography – to do some digging of her own, exploring the ephemeral nature of the world around us, and questioning the prudence and attainability of ideas such as permanence, independence and equality. The exhibition shares a name with Myrrha’s latest series of works, ‘Zona da Instabilidade’ (instability zone), a trio of pieces featuring concrete dust as a symbol for impermanence and transformation, and portraying these ideas as

mere promises that only exist in the abstract. The temporary and unstable nature of solidity, for instance, is prominent in the concrete sculpture, ‘Pódio para Ninguém’ (‘Podium for Nobody’, above). Other notable works include ‘Dicionário do Impossível’ – a marble reproduction of several of these ‘impossible’, idealised words accompanied by their Portuguese dictionary entries – and ‘O Tempo Corre Para o Norte’, an hourglass whose sand lies static in the upper half, defying all notion of time. ‘Zona da Instabilidade’ is at Caixa Cultural until 25 August. See Museums & Cultural Centres.

Open 10.30am-7pm Mon-Fri; 11am3pm Sat. Galeria Oscar Cruz Oscar Cruz has been dealing in contemporary art in São Paulo for over 15 years, and takes part in a number of major international art fairs.

Canvas-SP Galeria After four years operating as a high-end art auction house, Canvas SP has opened a gallery in the same space. They’re keeping the auction and gallery arms of the business separate, although works by various well-known international artists appear in both. Look out for a sign that reads ‘Galeria de Arte’ on an all-glass facade on which the word ‘e-art’ is repeated in blue, as aside from these clues, the address is unmarked. Rua Joaquim Antunes 187, Jardim Paulistano (3061 5715/canvasspgaleria.com.br). Open 10am-7pm MonFri; noon-4pm Sat.

Galeria Luisa Strina This gallery, which now covers the entire ground floor of a Jardins office block, has been a cornerstone of the upmarket, contemporary art circuit since the 1970s. With excellent international connections, the gallery represents artists like Cildo Meireles and Antônio Dias, as well as mid-career artists such as Alexandre da Cunha. Rua Padre João Manuel 755, Jardim Paulista (3088 2471/galerialuisastrina.com.br). Open 10am-7pm Mon-Fri; 10am-5pm Sat. No credit cards. Mendes Wood Injecting a dash of youthful zest and daring into the city’s art scene, Mendes Wood is owned by galleristas Pedro Mendes, Felipe Dmab and Matthew Wood, the latter from the USA. This is a cutting-edge gallery whose artists now include Brazil’s foremost conceptual artist, Tunga, as well as a roster of bright young things. Rua da Consolação 3358, Jardim Paulista (3081 1735/ mendeswood.com). Metrô 2, Consolação. Open 10am-7pm Mon-Sat. No credit cards. Mônica Filgueiras & Eduardo Machado Mônica Filgueiras, who sadly passed away in 2011, was a highly respected veteran of the São Paulo art scene. She had only recently teamed up with the gallerist Eduardo Machado to form this new joint gallery, featuring edgy street art by the likes of Ozi, Bugre and Gejo as well as works by the Modernist Italian-Brazilian sculptor Victor Brecheret, whose immense Monumento às Bandeiras statue sits in front of Parque do Ibirapuera. Rua Bela Cintra 1533, Jardim Paulista (3081 9492). Metrô 2, Consolação. Open 10am-7pm Mon-Fri; 10.30am-2.pm Sat. No credit cards. Galeria Nara Roesler With her son Alexandre running online gallery Galeria Motor (galeriamotor.com.br), and herself a busy and experienced player, Nara Roesler is an influential name in São Paulo art. Japanese ‘old school contemporary’ painter Tomie Ohtake, founder of the institute that bears her name (see Major institutions), is just one of her artists, as are fashionable young painters like Rodolpho Parigi. Avenida Europa 655, Jardim Europa (3063 2344/nararoesler.com.br). Open 10am-7pm Mon-Fri; 11am-3pm Sat. No credit cards.. Zipper Galeria The emphasis at this gallery, owned by the experienced galerista Fabio Cimino, is on the new and the pop. We love the now-iconic, voyeuristic photos of unknowing city balcony sunbathers by fashion/ art photographer Felipe Morozini, and the strangely resonant portraits by the young painter Rodrigo Cunha; but with excellent curation and two spaces, upstairs and down, there’s always something on that’s worth seeing here. Rua Estados Unidos 1494, Jardim Paulista (4306 4306/zippergaleria.com. br). Open 10am-7pm Mon-Fri; 11am5pm Sat. No credit cards.

minimalist ground floor space fool you. The stairs lead to a arsenal of artworks, packed floor-to-ceiling with works from almost all fourteen artists on Paralelo’s roster. The gallery, open since 2010, invests in promising new artists like Spain’s Jesús Herrera, as well as seasoned practitioners like the British photographer Jamie Stewart-Granger, who lives in Bahia and whose sensitive photos of the area are simply exquisite. Rua Artur de Azevedo 986, Pinheiros (2495 6876/ paralelogallery.com). Open 11am-7pm Mon-Fri; 11am-3pm Sat. Smith Galeria A new arrival on the Pinheiros art circuit, Smith aims to resist the exclusive bent of swankier galleries and make itself a haven for art mavens and curious dabblers alike. High ceilings and a spacious back yard make it ideal for installations and larger works. New exhibitions open five-weekly, but whatever the show of the moment, Smith dedicates all three storeys to it. Rua João Moura 417/419, Pinheiros (3259 7513/ smithgaleria.com.br). Open 1-7pm TueFri; 10am-2pm Sat. Galeria Virgílio The airy exhibition spaces and pleasant cafe of Galeria Virgílio are a hangout for the Pinheiros art crowd, and the place is unashamedly intellectual. So don’t be surprised to find a social-media journalism course or a jazz show alongside exhibitions by artists like Diego Belda, who is also the chef and owner of Rothko restaurant. Rua Virgílio de Carvalho Pinto 426, Pinheiros (2373 2999/galeriavirgilio.com.br). Open 10am-7pm Mon-Fri; 10am-5pm Sat. No credit cards.

Perdizes & Pompéia Gravura Brasileira Opened in 1998 by Alberto Fuks and Eduardo Besen to showcase classic and contemporary print art, Gravura Brasileira has since staged more than 100 exhibitions from its Perdizes headquarters. This is one of precious few print-only galleries in Brazil, and its exhibitions are both reliably interesting and of consistently high artistic quality. Rua Dr Franco da Rocha 61, Perdizes (3624 0301/ gravurabrasileira.com). Open 11am-6pm Mon-Fri; 11am-1pm Sat.

Amoa Konoya Arte Indígena Walter Gomes da Silva’s relationship with Brazil’s numerous indigenous tribes goes back to 1984, when members of the União da Nações Indígenas (Union of Indigenous Nations) asked him to market their handiwork. So he knows what he’s talking about. Today, the arts and crafts gallery he runs with Silvana Costa sells work from 60 indigenous settlements, from geometrically-patterned ceramics to arrowheads. Rua João Moura 1002, Pinheiros (3061 0639/amoakonoya.com. br). Open 9am-6pm Mon-Sat. Galeria Estação Gallery director Vilma Eid’s focus is on the cream of Brazilian popular art, displaying a collection of fascinating works, including sculpture and painting by artists such as José Antônio da Silva and Nuca. Rua Ferreira de Araújo 625, Pinheiros (3813 7253/galeriaestacao. com.br). Open 11am-7pm Mon-Fri; 11am-3pm Sat. No credit cards. Galeria Logo In a versatile white space with a basement area that means two shows can run concurrently, Galeria Logo is a favourite with the skate/ graffiti/meeja crowd, and got off to a flying start when it opened in 2011 with a series of ambitious, large-scale shows. Rua Artur de Azevedo 401, Pinheiros (3062 2381/galerialogo.com). Open 11am-7pm Tue-Sat. Galeria nuVEM You might mistake this off-the-wall shop/gallery for a toy shop, with its window display full of dolls and fanciful insect models, which the Korean-born artist Sang crafts from Barbie parts, animal figurines and plastic soap containers. But for a more traditional gallery feel, head to the second floor to see the occasional shows of political and urban themed works by other artists, many of whom are also from Korea, or from other parts of South America. Rua Mateus Grou 355, Pinheiros (3061 1237/ galerianuvem.com.br). Open 11am-7pm Tue-Fri; 11am-5pm Sat. Galeria Moura Marsiaj The veteran gallery owners, Laura Marsiaj of Rio de Janeiro and Mariana Moura of Recife, have joined forces to set up shop in São Paulo at Moura Marsiaj in Pinheiros. Your visit might coincide with a show by any one of the thirty-odd up-andcoming artists Laura and Mariana collectively represent. It’s possible to request a viewing of the backroom permanent collection, and best to call ahead for visits between December and February – activity slows down here significantly during the holidays.

Baró Galeria Baró is an important player in SP and beyond, and it does things on a grand scale, with a constantly changing programme and a hallmark dash of daring. The stylish Spanish owner, Maria Baró, has also developed particularly good connections with artists from other Latin American countries. Her gallery occupies a large, airy, industrial space in the rising art district of Barra Funda, where it has the floor space for large installations. Rua Barra Funda 216, Barra Funda (3666 6489/barogaleria. com). Metrô 3, Marechal Deodoro. Open 11am-7pm Tue-Fri; 11am-5pm Sat. No credit cards.

Vila Madalena Choque Cultural This unpretentious, influential, cutting-edge gallery is dedicated to Brazilian urban art from graffiti artists to skateboard designers and printmakers. In early 2013, it closed its much loved original gallery space at Rua João Moura, concentrating its activities at what was formerly its second location. It has played a significant role in promoting the city’s street art, and if you find live-wire curator/co-owner Baixo Ribeiro on the premises and up for a chat, you’ll come out wiser on this and many other art-related subjects. Rua Medeiros de Albuquerque 250, Vila Madalena (3061 2365/choquecultural. com.br). Open 10am-6pm Tue-Fri; 1-6pm Sat.

Favela chic Dom da Periferia

DOC Galeria This dynamic little gallery upstairs from Posto 6 bar (the gallery owner is also a partner in the lively night spot) specialises in photography, running the Mostra, Vila Madalena’s annual photo festival, as well as a series of workshops and events. Highly recommended. Rua Aspicuelta 662, Vila Madalena (3938 0130/ docgaleria.com.br). Open 11am-7pm Mon-Fri; 11am-2pm Sat.. Fortes Vilaça Even an art ignoramus will feel the quality at this gallery, one of the most established Brazilian names on the international circuit. They’ve got big names on the roster: São Paulo graffiti stars OsGemeos, the world-renowned installation artist Ernesto Neto, and Beatriz Milhazes and her beautiful, colourful paintings. Look out for the work of the always interesting Adriana Varejão. If there’s something on in particular, the Galpão (warehouse) is well worth a visit, too – but the area isn’t great, so it’s best to take a taxi. Rua Fradique Coutinho 1500, Vila Madalena (3032 7066/fortesvilaca.com.br). Open 10am-7pm Tue-Fri; 10am-6pm Sat. No credit cards.

Galeria Millan The charming André Millan is a mainstay of the Brazilian contemporary art market, and represents, amongst others, the artists Tatiana Blass, Artur Barrio and Ana Maria Maiolino. Millan also shows photographers like Bob Wolfenson, and Miguel Rio Branco, one of the godfathers of contemporary Brazilian photography.

Galeria Transversal A new Vila Madalena outpost for the two-year-old Barra Funda gallery, this space is double the size of the original, at 400m2. Swing by to check it out, and combine it with a trip to the nearby galleries Fortes Vilaça and Galeria Millan. The older space will only be used for occasional exhibitions and courses and also as the ‘acervo’ – the back room; so call to check before heading to Barra Funda. Rua Fidalga 545, Vila Madalena (3392 5287/galeriatransversal.com.br). Open 11am-7pm Tue-Fri; 11am-6pm Sat. Other location Rua do Bosque 206, Barra Funda (3392 5287).

The journey from favela fashion alum to backstage designer at São Paulo Fashion Week – Brazil’s biggest fashion event – is arduous and usually inconceivable, but for a group of four aspiring designers, the dream came to fruition. But don’t take our word for it: the Dutch photographer Ahmet Polat was around to document it in two separate instances, six years apart, starting with their day-to-day grind early on in the gritty neighbourhood of Campo Limpo, and culminating in all four finding success in their own separate ways. ‘O Dom da Periferia’ runs from 27 June-31 July at DOC Galeria.

White Cube São Paulo It’s one of the first major international galleries to arrive in São Paulo – but we’re wagering it won’t be the last. Opened in December 2012, London’s White Cube gallery kicked off with a solo show by one of its Brit Art stars, Tracey Emin. It also represents Antony Gormley, love-him-or-hate-him art bad boy Damien Hirst, and a huge list of major international talent, some of whom are already jockeying for a show in SP. As well as bringing artists from its current roster to show in SP, the gallery will be showing Brazilian artists at its new, immense London space in Bermondsey, and possibly even in its Hong Kong branch. Rua Agostinho Rodrigues Filho 550, Vila Mariana (whitecube.com). Open 11am-7pm Tue-Sat.

Camille Claudel, 1915

Work of art Dumont’s film stars Binoche (left) as the French sculptor during her time in an asylum, where non-actors play the other inmates

Dir. Bruno Dumont, France, 2013. Juliette Binoche, Jean-Luc Vincent, Emmanuel Kauffman. 95 mins.

That date in the title of Bruno Dumont’s Camille Claudel, 1915 is doubly crucial. Not only does it reflect the story’s focus on a specific moment in the life of the sculptor, but it differentiates this film from an earlier movie of almost the same name from 1988, starring Isabelle Adjani. That was a fittingly energetic account (deploying Adjani’s raw intensity) of Claudel’s younger years, as a successful artist taught by, romantically involved with and rivalling

Rodin. Unsurprisingly, this film from the director of L’Humanité and Hadewijch is an altogether more restrained affair, depicting her later incarceration in an asylum near Avignon. It’s arguably the writerdirector’s finest achievement yet. Atypically, he makes use of professional actors in the lead roles, and is rewarded by fine work from Jean-Luc Vincent as the hapless heroine’s poet brother Paul, and by a wonderful performance by Juliette Binoche as Camille. Conveying the intelligence, anxiety, anger and isolation of an artist abandoned by her family, unable to work and forced to live with women

mostly far less capable even of surviving than herself, Binoche displays both eloquent expertise and an admirable control wholly in keeping with the simplicity and clarity of Dumont’s uncompromisingly authentic script and direction. (Rightly, if perhaps controversially, the other inmates of the asylum are mostly played by non-professionals who are themselves severely disabled in real life.) Such story as there is deals with Claudel’s despair at her situation and her forlorn hope of release. Mercifully, even though the last third of the film allows Paul to

discuss – at perhaps too great length – his passionate Catholic beliefs, this is not one of Dumont’s woolly ventures into mystificatory abstraction; sticking to various historical documents, he simply focuses on Claudel’s painful predicament as a woman, an artist, a depressive, and a sentient, intelligent human being. Eschewing metaphor and mysticism (save insofar as his characters adopt them), he has for once given us a film of immense visual beauty, thematic clarity and subtle resonance. Geoff Andrew Camille Claudel, 1915 is released on 9 August.

Reviews Much Ado About Nothing

No big fuss Fran Kranz (left) and Nathan Fillion co-star in Whedon’s modern take on the Shakespeare comedy verse, and the misty landscapes glisten magically and ominously as the story winds its way through misunderstanding, manipulation, tragedy and romantic triumph. Yet there’s an unfortunate frivolousness to the way the filmmaker treats many of the

darker narrative turns – especially in the case of the easily duped Claudio (Fran Kranz) and his inamorata, Hero (Jillian Morgese) – as if he’s rushing through the hardship to get to the happy ending. The movie feels like too much of a lark. To paraphrase the play’s voice

of reason, Friar Francis, it would be better if Whedon paused awhile and let his counsel sway us more. Keith Uhlich

Film

Angst-ridden vampire slayers. Musically inclined mad-scientist bloggers. The ever-expanding stable of po-faced Marvel superheroes. Joss Whedon has tackled all the great archetypes of our era. What challenge remains but the characters of William Shakespeare, that timeless poet of star-crossed lovers and existentially agitated royalty? The Bard’s mid-career comic romance is in many ways a natural fit for Whedon’s blithe sensibilities, with its slyly lighthearted tone and swoonily amorous entanglements. He’s updated the setting to a modern-day hill manor and made an alluringly idiosyncratic choice to shoot in black and white. The appealing cast is comprised primarily of Whedon alums: Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof are caustic courters Beatrice and Benedick, and a delightfully clueless Nathan Fillion is that ‘ass’ of a constable, Dogberry. No one tongue-trips over the

Dir. Rachid Bouchareb, USA, UK, France, 2012. Sienna Miller, Golshifteh Farahani, Roschdy Zem. 96 mins.

On the wrong track Sienna Miller as an aspiring belly dancer

Marilyn (Sienna Miller) is stuck with a deadbeat spouse, a dead-end job and dreams of being a belly dancer. Mona (Golshifteh Farahani) is an Arab immigrant made to feel guilty over having not given her husband (Roschdy Zem) a child yet. Unexpected unemployment, infidelity and accidental matri-inlaw-icide find this Chicago twosome hightailing toward Santa Fe, where an audition offers Marilyn a brighter future. You can see several narrative off-ramps that Rachid Bouchareb’s drama might take: a Thelma & Louise-like road movie about female empowerment; some Full Monty-ish cutesy-quirk involving liberation through hip-shaking; or a vehicle for a starlet whose looks distract from her talent and who believes that a dowdy turn will establish her

thespian bona fides. So imagine your relief when Just Like a Woman only cherrypicks elements from each, forgoing formulas in favour of the sort of gentler character study the FrancoAlgerian filmmaker excels in. Only the drifting, observational structure he’s set up here never really gels; Bouchareb gives his actors room to roam, but you still get only skindeep sketches instead of flesh-andblood women. Worse, when clichés do start popping up – those phone calls back home, an unexpected if convenient act of violence – the overall looseness makes them stand out that much more. Movies genuinely attuned to the nuances of female bonding are regrettably rare; so, it seems, are ones that know how to make good on their promise without breaking just like a little girl. David Fear Just Like a Woman (Simplesmente uma Mulher) is released on 19 July.

The Big Wedding

Film

They don’t make matrimonial comedies like they used to. Not only are recent titles cleansed of distinguishing terms like ‘fat’ and ‘Greek’, they can’t even wait five screen minutes before showing Robert De Niro torpedoing his bristly goatee into Susan Sarandon’s willing crotch. (That it takes another ten minutes for Katherine Heigl to projectile vomit seems classily restrained by comparison.) In this cloyingly crude and dispiritingly typical ensemble Hollywood farce, Don (De Niro) and Bebe (Sarandon) are hosting a wedding celebration for their adopted son Alejandro (Ben Barnes) and his bride-to-be Missy (Amanda Seyfried). Things get wacky when Alejandro doesn’t have the heart to tell his visiting ultra-Catholic Colombian birth mother that Don is no longer married to Ellie (Diane Keaton), the woman that raised him, prompting the bickering divorcés to reunite for one wild weekend of bed-hopping, face-punching and eleventh-hour reconciling. Building on his script for The Bucket List, budding auteur of

geriatric sex Justin Zackham panders to his wizened (and apparently very horny) target audience with a film that’s shot like a pharmaceutical commercial and references tantric orgasms, penile pumps and extramarital

peccadilloes. But in between spikes of soapy sensationalism, The Big Wedding has a seriously hard time getting it up. De Niro and Keaton gamely summon semblances of characters from the tin-eared potty talk, but even

they can’t save this impotent film from amounting to a big nothing. Eric Hynes The Big Wedding (O Casamento do Ano) is released on 30 August.

Film festival Anima Mundi Probert, and the Brazilian Ennio Torresan, fresh from a stint at DreamWorks where he worked on Madagascar and the Kung Fu Panda films. For the general public there are five days jam-packed with film screenings – this edition features a prodigious 485 animations from 53 countries, largely from Brazil, but with a strong presence from France, the USA, the UK and Germany. As if that collection didn’t offer enough choice, there are also dedicated kids’ sessions, another category exclusively for innovative Brazilian works and interesting additional viewing at Anima Multi – a strand covering everything from video games to interactive art.

First held in 1993 by four Brazilian directors who feared for the health of Brazil’s ailing animation industry, Anima Mundi has likely quelled these fears – in this, its 21st annual edition, it’s the second largest film festival of its kind in the world. Catering to filmmakers both established and emerging, the festival hosts a ‘Papos Animados’ (‘lively chats’) series of workshops and panels for amateur auteurs, and a more in-depth forum for pros, the ‘Master Classes’. This year’s roll call of distinguished speakers includes Oscarwinning director Chris Wedge (who worked on the blockbuster Ice Age films), the storyboard creator of ’80s classics Airwolf and Back to the Future, Andrew

Perhaps conceived to bridge the gap between a full featurefilm cinema experience and our quenchless thirst for on-demand entertainment in the form of YouTube clips, the Caixa de Cinema may just be the anecdote to our dwindling attention spans. The photobooth-cum-jukebox meets impatient film buffs halfway, showing short – albeit very memorable – movie scenes in an intimate booth, complete with two cinema-quality seats, a velvet curtain and an ottoman for good measure. The clips – featuring

120 classic scenes from movies like Pulp Fiction, The Wizard of Oz, and Brazil’s own City of God – are just long enough to enchant us with a bit of movie magic, and can be selected by a touchscreen using multiple search options, including title, actors and genre, among others. With only three scenes allowed per sitting, you’ll find yourself yearning for more when the credits roll. Caixa de Cinema is at the Museu da Imagem e do Som (MIS) until the end of the year. Open noon-10pm Mon-Fri; 11am-9pm Sat, Sun. See listings. FREE

When the university professor Marcelo Modesto came out as gay in 1992, at the age of 19, it wasn’t only him but also his mother Edith who found herself facing prejudice. With that in mind, the pair created Projeto Purpurina, a support group for young gay people aged 13-24. The group meets on the first and third Sundays of each month, with a film screening on the third Sunday, followed by a discussion. On 21 July, the discussion will be about disability, with the film Love! Valour! Compassion! (above) recounting the lives and loves of eight gay friends, one of whom is blind.

Lasting impression

Splashing back The Breeders (Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs, Kim Deal and Jim MacPherson ) will perform their famed 1993 release, ‘Last Splash’

The Breeders return to São Paulo to play the LP Last Splash, which turns 20 this year, reports Rafael Argemon The Breeders was the result of a side project by Kim Deal, who balked when Black Francis (guitarist, vocalist and leader of their then-group, the Pixies) gave the compositions by the bassist (and future vocalist) short shrift. But what were meant to be a few seasons of freedom and respite from Francis, resulted in a band

capable of achieving the kind of commercial success that the Pixies only garnered after splitting up and returning years later, capitalising on the band’s cult status. Deal’s comeback began with Last Splash, The Breeders’ second album, which she recorded with twin sister Kelley (guitar/vocals), Josephine Wiggs (bass) and Jim MacPherson (drums). Since it’s often considered one of the most important records of the 1990s, label 4AD has released LSXX, a bonus-filled edition commemorating its 20-year anniversary. And to promote the recent reissue, the band is set to play the beloved

album in its entirety at its 24 July performance at Cine Joia. This is the third trip to Brazil for the Deal sisters and company following visits in 2003 and 2008. Local fans will be rocking forward to two of The Breeders’ biggest hits, ‘Cannonball’, with its hypnotic, unforgettable bass line and the dulcet and heartfelt longing of ‘Divine Hammer’. Beside these altrock staples, expect strong tracks like the equally catchy ‘Invisible Man’, the sweet rustic swing of ‘Drivin’ on 9’, and the punk-pop feel of ‘I Just Wanna Get Along’. In addition to the first album, 1990’s Pod, The Breeders recorded

three more albums. But none of them mirrored the success of Last Splash, which showcased the strength of Kim’s compositions, previously ignored by Francis Black’s reign over the Pixies. Incidentally, Deal left the group permanently last month to devote herself exclusively to The Breeders. For those who want to relive or possibly experience this treasure of 1990s indie rock for the first time, this is a must-see event.

honour of her mother, the iconic singer Elis Regina. Rita insists that she’s still overwhelmed by the presence of Regina. ‘As my mother is part of the national collective consciousness, it’s important for me to represent and rediscover her legacy. It’s my mission to do everything I can to keep her alive.’ The tour, which is now longer

than originally planned, and takes in most Brazilian cities as well as dates in Lisbon, Porto and Buenos Aires, was the brainchild of Rita herself, who chose many of the classics, like ‘Águas de Março’, ‘Arrastão’, ‘Vida de Bailarina’, ‘O Bêbado e a Equilibrista’, ‘Como Nossos Pais’, ‘Alô, Alô Marciano’, ‘Maria, Maria’ and ‘Fascinação’. Fans in need of a sneak preview

should check out the well-received CD or DVD of the show, which were awarded platinum certification for 80,000 and 50,000 sales, respectively.

The Breeders play at Cine Joia, Praça Carlos Gomes 82, Sé (3231 3705/cinejoia.tv) on 24 July, 11.30pm. Tickets R$100-$200.

Album reviews Sigur Rós

A man after his own heart West’s childish self-love sabotages his latest work

For all the hype around the rapper’s sixth record, it turns out to be frustratingly juvenile says Brent DiCrescenzo Yeezus (Def Jam)

It begins in college. He is naive, idealistic and a preternaturally talented orator. Next he is in New York, working at a paint factory that has perfected the formula for high gloss. Then he is wounded, hooked to a machine in a glass box. Later, he is brought into the world of the elite, where he is seduced by white women. He is asked by his bosses to deliver a speech, to start a movement, but he goes a little too far, gets a little too up his own ass and over people’s heads. Finally, he is disillusioned and becomes militant. He goes underground, living in a room filled with nothing but light fixtures, playing an old soul record over and over.

That is (very) roughly the plot of Ralph Ellison’s novel Invisible Man. Spot any parallels with Kanye West’s career? His picaresque discography runs from The College Dropout to the slick and colorful Graduation to the damaged and mechanical 808s & Heartbreak to this brash and angry latest. Ellison’s unnamed protagonist ends up hiding in a bunker of light bulbs; Kanye claims his new LP was inspired by a lamp. Yeezus H. Christ, I know, it’s pretty unbearable when a critic compares a record to a classic novel. It is tenuous; Yeezus does not equate to one of the great works of American literature. But the pop persona of Kanye West strikes me as a character Ellison would invent had he lived today. West is intoxicated by the power of his voice, but increasingly unsure of how to wield it, and unsure for what greater good it serves. There is one key difference between the Invisible Man and Yeezus. Ellison’s title character claims he is invisible because ‘people refuse to see me’; Kanye has been fading to invisibility because he refuses to let us see him.

It’s difficult to believe that a megalomaniac like Kanye would hang in a studio with a down-to-earth indie dude like Justin Vernon of Bon Iver (who lends his hands to two cuts here), or allow his work to be redacted and tweaked by a Svengali like Rick Rubin at the 11th hour, or keep his ear to the underground to cherry pick collaborators like Evian Christ (‘I’m In It’) and TNGHT (‘Blood on the Leaves’). Vainglorious idiots do not typically surround themselves with this much brainpower. Kanye is a savvy appropriator. His greatest talent is in melding, in the way he can pull together disparate elements like Daft Punk, Vernon, Chief Keef, Nina Simone, TNGHT and his trademark soul samples into a cohesive vision. In that manner, the ’80s pop icon Kanye most recalls is Madonna. Unfortunately, Yeezus is his American Life. If you want to observe West’s keen marketing skills, look at how successful he’s been at convincing writers that Yeezus is some kind of punk statement. Sure, the record certainly begins in a bracing, belligerent manner. The shrill alarm of the opening ‘On Sight’ pushes levels into the red with electroshock bleeps. ‘Black Skinhead,’ far and away the best track, turns a Gary Glitter glam stomp into a goosestepping protest march. There’s a playful obnoxiousness to the deep bass and cheap haunted house jolts of ‘I Am a God.’ This strong opening suite, all produced by Daft Punk to the punishing fuck-you standards of Human After All, leads into ‘New Slaves,’ a cut which begins brilliantly before collapsing into the disappointing, dick-obsessed stupidity of the back stretch. Kanye used to weave captivating narratives of his life and struggles. Today, Kanye talks about his dick. A lot. The major letdown of Yeezus is that for those few vital rants on the corporate prison system and consumerism, the record is largely about a certain penis. Ghostwriters litter the production credits to Yeezus in a blockbuster-like litany that shatters any notion of this record being raw or spontaneous. Check the fine print. Those Rage Against the Machine polemics on ‘Black Skinhead’? Lupe Fiasco is credited. Rhymefest gets noted for ‘On Sight’ and ‘New Slaves’. Invisible men penning lyrics for an invisible man. This CD comes encased in nothingness, in clear plastic. It is an invisible album.

Kveikur (XL)

In 2005, the Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós released Takk…, an album of dreamy, ambient music fated to soundtrack a thousand Sky Sports goal montages. Jónsi Birgisson and his group have created some gorgeous sounds, but their placid, drifting songs have tended to fade into the background. It’s a problem the band seem to be aware of, and since Takk… Sigur Rós have been searching for new ways to sharpen their music into something which can’t be ignored. They tried acoustic folk elements on Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust (‘With a Buzz in Our Ears We Play Endlessly’) in 2008, and last year’s Valtari added extra synths and a baroque choir. Both were nice enough, but their latest album is something else entirely. Kveikur piles thick layers of distortion and discord onto the beautiful, swooning melodies that made the band’s name. It’s a storming record, showcasing a new direction that could reposition them as one of the world’s best noise-rock bands. The opening track ‘Brennisteinn’ sets this new tone with huge, fuzzy, guitars, and ‘Stormur’ and ‘Kveikur’ deliver thudding, pulsing, churning industrial textures underneath some of the album’s most uplifting harmonies. ‘Rafstraumur’ matches an enormous, howling distorted guitar part and insistent drums with some sugar-sweet singing, while ‘Bláþráður’ is full of weird grinding noises, like huge dark things moving on the very edge of the sound field. Even the gentle strings on the final track, ‘Var’, play long, teeth-grittingly discordant notes. Kveikur is an aural assault from start to finish: an album which refuses to fade into the background. It’s exactly what Sigúr Ros needed to do, and they’ve done it splendidly. For the first time in a long time, Jónsi and company sound surprising. James Manning

While bands are the main draw here, Beco also hosts regular parties, like Indierokkers on Saturdays and the all-you-can-drink-for-R$50 party Fuck Rehab! on Wednesday nights.

Open 8pm-1am Tue-Sat; 9.30pm-12.30am Sun. Prices 355ml beer R$8; caipirinha R$12.50. Jazz nos Fundos This is what a jazz dive should feel like: dark (bar the low red light), spartan and unpretentious. It’s basically a hole-in-the-wall in a parking lot, but the music is excellent and it is, after all, all about the jazz. Nice. Rua João Moura 1076, Pinheiros (3083 5975/jazznosfundos.net). Open 8pm-2.30am Thu-Sat; shows 10pm, 1am. Prices cover R$13-$19; small bottle beer R$4.50; caipirinha R$11.

Football & World Cup 2014 Next stop, the World Cup

The Confederations Cup, which drew to a close with an impressive victory for Brazil on 30 June, has given Brazil a little taster of what lies ahead with next year’s World Cup. We’re not just talking about how victory might feel on home turf, but about what hosting the games in 2014 is going to entail. Although the Confederations Cup is the smallest of the three major sporting events Brazil will host this decade, it’s had a big impact nonetheless, giving the fans something to be excited about, and bringing the organisers some peace of mind. Faith in the Brazilian team was low when it made its debut in the tournament, just over a month ago. Uninspired play coupled with a change of coach in November had raised a number of concerns, and the team was even booed in some of its warm-up games. But that faith was duly restored when the national side beat the Spanish team in the final, giving the five-time champs their confidence back. Neymar, who needed to prove he could live up to his reputation as the star of his generation, scored four times in five games, also doing justice to his number 10 jersey, once worn by the legendary Pelé. Even Fred, who wears the number

Brazil has passed the Confederations Cup test, but there is still plenty of room for improvement, says Cecília Gianesi

Threepeat Brazil’s third-straight Confederations Cup is cause for celebration, but the World Cup still looms large 9 jersey, was commended for his play by Brazil’s modern-day icon, Ronaldo, who made ​​history in that same shirt. Coach Felipão seems to have built the team’s foundation for the World Cup, and should only solidify it in the upcoming friendlies against Switzerland and Portugal. But while Brazil surprised as a team, it merely met expectations as a host country. FIFA president Joseph Blatter said the Confederations Cup was a successful test, though he

didn’t fail to mention what needs to be improved. The widespread demonstrations that consumed the country throughout the Cup are cause for concern. Poor public transport, the intial catalyst for the protests, needs to be resolved. Ticket distribution, with people queueing for hours, was considered a failure. During some matches, the stadiums ran out of food, and were criticised for overpriced refreshments and

unreliable mobile connectivity. All this in a tournament that involved just eight teams and six stadiums, as opposed to the World Cup, which will feature 32 teams and 12 stadiums. The angry protests in June even included calls for the cancellation of the World Cup, criticised for its huge cost to the public purse. That’s highly unlikely; but there’s still room for improvement before the big test. Here’s hoping Brazil will surprise it’s critics yet again.

17 JULY Recopa: Corinthians vs. São Paulo A draw will suffice for Corinthians to get their hands on the South American equivalent of the UEFA Super Cup, as they beat São Paulo 2-1 in the first leg, with gaffs from both teams’ goalkeepers. 9.50pm, Pacaembu. 20 JULY Brasilerão: São Paulo vs. Cruzeiro The teams find themselves in similar positions on the Brasileirão tables, fighting for first place and an early-season edge in the championship. 6.30pm, Morumbi. 21 JULY Brasileirão: Santos vs. Coritiba The team from Paraná was atop the standings for the first 5 rounds, and is trying to keep up the pace, while the Neymar-less paulista team tries to climb out of 16th. 4pm, Vila Belmiro.

28 JULY Brasilerão: Corinthians

14 AUG Brasileirão: Santos vs. Vasco The score in the last three matches was 2-0, with Santos winning two of the encounters. Vasco has the chance to even that out, though hopefully with a score other than a 2-0, to bring an end to this wacky statistic. 10pm, Vila Belmiro.

vs. São Paulo Just 11 days after they decide the Recopa, the rivals will meet again, this time aiming for 3 points in the run for the Brasileirão. It may mean revenge for the losers, or reassertion for the champion. 4pm, Pacaembu. 31 JULY Brasilerão: Corinthians vs. Grêmio Grêmio will look to their new coach Renato Gaúcho for support in the second half of the tournament, and to get through this match on home turf for the Timão. 9pm, Pacaembu. 7 AUG Brasileirão: Santos vs. Corinthians Both teams are trying to find their way after losing their stars to Europe. With Neymar off to Barcelona and Paulinho to Tottenham, who will be missed the most? 4pm, Vila Belmiro.

Football stadium Pacaembu Praça Charles Miller, Pacaembu (3664 4650). Metrô 2, Clinicas. Tickets R$30-$120. Morumbi Praça Roberto Gomes Pedrosa 1 (3749 8000). Tickets R$30-$120. No credit cards. Vila Belmiro Rua Princesa Isabel, no number, Santos (13 3257 4000). Tickets R$20-$60.

Resources Fire and medical emergencies 193 Military Police 190 DEATUR (Specialised tourist police) Rua da Consolação 247, Centro (3151 4167/3259 2202.

HEALTH For emergency medical needs, head to one of the public hospitals such as the immense Hospital das Clínicas (Avenida Doutor Enéas de Carvalho Aguiar 255, Pinheiros, 2661 0000, hcnet. usp.br), though be prepared to wait. Of the private hospitals, Hospital Nove de Julho (Rua Peixoto Gomide 625, Bela Vista, 3147 9999, hospital9dejulho.com.br) is close to Avenida Paulista and accepts walk-ins. For a complete list of hospitals in São Paulo, visit saude.sp.gov.br.

LEGAL ASSISTANCE Large general practices with Englishspeaking lawyers include Suchodolski Advogados Associados (24th Floor, Rua Augusta 1819, 3372 1300, suchodolski.com.br) and Ary Oswaldo Mattos Filho (Alameda Joaquim Eugênio de Lima 447, 3147 7600, mattosfilho.com.br).

SP Essentials

MONEY The Brazilian currency is the real (plural reais). Banks and ATMs are easy to find throughout the city, though not all will accept foreign ATM cards – travellers tend to have the most success with CitiBank, HSBC and Banco do Brasil. Banks open from 10am-4pm Mon-Fri. Some ATMs can be accessed after 4pm, though for security reasons, most will only dispense R$300 after 10pm.

Lost & stolen cards

American Express 0800 721 1188 Diners Club 4001 4444/0800 728 4444 Mastercard 0800 891 3294 Visa 0800 891 3680

SAFETY & SECURITY It’s customary for Brazilians to carry identification, often required to access office buildings. For security reasons, it’s best not to carry an original passport around, but it’s easy enough to get a copy of a passport certified at the offices of a notary public (cartório). As in any large metropolis, crime is a serious issue in São Paulo. Be careful with personal belongings, especially at night and in the city centre. Avoid wearing valuable- looking jewellery, and take the measure of your surroundings before pulling out an expensive camera, laptop or mobile phone. Most places in São Paulo are safe to walk in during the day, but at night it’s best to avoid dark streets where there are few people. High-risk areas for crime and pick-pocketing include Praça da Sé, Praça da República, and around Estação

da Luz. Do not argue with muggers – just hand over your possessions calmly., and try not to look at them too directly. Chances are they will be carrying a weapon.

TELEPHONES DiaLling & codes

Brazil’s international country code is 55. All cities have a two-digit city code followed by an eight-digit telephone number. Mobiles in São Paulo have nine digits (always commencing with a 9), except those operated by Nextel. The city code for São Paulo is 11, though you don’t need to include 11 when making a local call from within São Paulo.

Mobile phones

European phones and US GSM phones usually work, though you may need to call the mobile operator first to remove international restrictions. Some Brazilian operators reportedly permit foreigners to register a pre-paid local SIM card using a passport number, but in practice, most insist on a valid CPF (Brazilian social security number).

TOURIST INFORMATION São Paulo’s official English-language tourism site, run by SPTuris, is cityofsaopaulo.com. There are several tourist information offices. The most centrally located ones are at Avenida São João 473 and Avenida Paulista 1853.

This month’s featured ’gram is of Edifício Torre Paulista, taken by Celso Tinôco Cavalcanti (@CelsoTinoco). To share your shots with us, just tag them with #timeoutsp. tickets can be bought at booths labelled bilheteria. With some exceptions, the metrô operates from 4.30am to midnight (0800 7707722, metro.sp.gov.br).

São Paulo’s public transport system is extensive. The metrô is clean and safe, though it doesn’t serve many neighbourhoods. But where the metrô doesn’t go, a bus usually does. The transport authority, SPTrans (sptrans. com.br), has a journey planner that uses Google Maps.

CPTM The Companhia Paulista de Trens Metropolitanos (0800 055 0121, cptm. sp.gov.br) is essentially an extension of the metrô that serves farther-flung suburban destinations, as well as parts of the city that the metrô does not reach.

CYCLING

Fares & tickets If you plan to make a few journeys on public transport, it’s well worth getting a Bilhete Único (free at metrô stations, but with a R$20 initial minimum credit). The card allows for free or low-cost transfers between buses, the metrô and CPTM trains. One bus ride is R$3.20, or for R$5 you can take one metrô/CPTM ride and up to three bus rides in a period of three hours.

Taxis Taxis can be hailed on the street, though the safest way is to call for one, find one at a ponto de táxi (taxi rank), or download one of the handy new smartphone apps such as Easy Taxi App, or SaferTaxi. Taxis use electronic meters, and fares start at R$4.10. Most taxis don’t accept cards, so make sure to have cash to hand. Central Táxi 3035 0404 Delta Rádio Táxi 5072 4499

WALKING

City buses São Paulo is served by a large network of buses regulated by SPTrans. A 24-hour hotline (dial 156) provides information on buses routes, or use Google Maps to plot your journey. You can pay on board with cash (R$3.20), or use a Bilhete Único. Metrô There are five metrô lines, each identified by a colour and a number. Maps are few and far between at metrô stations, so ask for one when you buy a ticket. A ride to any destination costs R$3.20 and

DRIVING

Driving in São Paulo is not for the faint of heart – drivers can be assertive and traffic and parking can be a nightmare, especially during peak hours. Ethanol is just as common in Brazil as traditional fuels, so make sure you know which fuel your car runs on. (Most new cars run with both ethanol and petrol.) Car rental companies will happily hand you a set of keys as long as you have a driver’s licence, credit card, and a passport corresponding to the country in which

There are still relatively few ciclovias (bicycle paths) in São Paulo, but there are some located in Parque do Ibirapuera, Cidade Universitária and along the Rio Pinheiros. There are also ciclofaixas (closedoff roads) on Sundays and holidays from 7am-4pm (ciclofaixa.com.br).

Though São Paulo is a car-oriented city, it is possible to explore many areas on foot. The best neighbourhoods for walking in are the historic Centro (which is less safe at night), Vila Madalena and Jardins. When crossing, watch out for speeding traffic – cars rarely slow for pedestrians.

MOBILITY ISSUES

São Paulo is not the most accommodating city for visitors with disabilities. Private tour agency Go in São Paulo (3289 3814, goinsaopaulo. com.br) provides tourist services and assistance for people with limited mobility, while the non-profit agency Instituto Mara Gabrilli (img.org. br) also provides information for the disabled on accessibility in public places.
