Cantinho do Avillez

Lisbon, Portugal

Chef José Avillez always draws a big crowd, and his buzzing urban bistro Cantinho do Avillez is no exception. Interiors are relaxed, with a rough-and-ready look – it is a canteen after all – and the menu is not dissimilar, with simple, pared-back dishes. Yet each one is awash with inventive flavours, showcasing the enormous care behind the concept – this is food you can’t hide behind and its sings with Avillez’s talent. Small plates are the order of the day, with deep-fried green beans, Alentejo-style black pork and marinated scallops with avocado standing out as firm crowd favourites.
