- No.10 Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants 2019
Rock-star, rule-breaker, sustainability pioneer. D.O.M. shows off Alex Atala in all his glory. Sampling the unknown on Atala’s wallet-busting 12-course ‘Maximus’ tasting menu (perhaps the most expensive in Brazil) is to journey to the far reaches of the Amazon. Expect to sample heart of palm, manioc (served five ways, including as a mille-feuille, in ‘the root of Brasil’ course), jambu (an Amazonian herb with electrical and medicinal qualities), pirarucu (a gigantic Amazonian river fish) and, not forgetting, the famous ants; all incorporated seamlessly into a fine-dining experience. Swing open the unexpectedly massive, towering front door and step into the high-ceilinged dining room to find out why D.O.M. has been a regular in the top five of Latin America’s 50 Best for years.
