For a celebratory meal or just a flight of fancy, make a reservation at Clube de Jornalistas in Lapa. Their outdoor garden has the perfect touch of whimsy to accompany your costelinha de borrego (small lamb chops) or your camarão (shrimp) risotto. The interior feels like a VIP lounge and, in the winter, is a good alternative to their outside seating. Opt for a ceviche to start and finish with a eucaliptus ice cream, and you’ll want to write about your culinary experience. In this case, what’s in a name is exactly what you get.
