Taberna da Rua das Flores, in the busy Chiado district, has a line forming outside its doors before 12 o’clock midday. If you’re lucky to get a seat, bread, olives, and olive oil quickly arrives at your table. Waiters present the daily menu to each set of guests – handwritten on a chalkboard. The food is typical Portuguese, but with a contemporary twist. Wines are local, and you can trust the sommelier’s recommendation.
The sommelier understood my taste in wine immediately.
Traditional interior to make up for a contemporary twist to the menu.
