The clean lines inside and out at the inviting, wood-panelled Zuka on Leblon’s foodie favorite, Rua Dias Ferreira, are echoed in the carefully prepared dishes emerging from chef Ludmilla Soeiro’s kitchen. Marking its ten-year anniversary in 2012 with a new menu, the large, coal grill remains the centerpiece of contemporary cuisine, perfectly charring the tuna and organic beef to perfection.
The food at Zuka is a mix of international and Brazilian flavors, with distinctively local ingredients. Being that Rio sits against the sea, expect excellent seafood options. Whatever you choose, the choice will be the right one. Don’t miss this gem of epicurean paradise.
