where you need to eat right now

What used to be a cannery with Roman ruins right in the heart of Lisbon’s city center - a few steps away from Sé cathedral - became a wooden table, plant decorated restaurant since the end of 2017. Behind the stove is a team led by former head chef at Taberna do Mercado António Galapito - who came back to his home country after spending almost 10 years in London, most of the time side by side with Nuno Mendes. António and his girlfriend Inês Pereira - now head of service at Prado - have created a restaurant of its own kind in Lisbon, with food and wine all produced in Portugal. They use seasonal, fresh and local ingredients with dishes changing daily - most of which coming straight from the grill. You can’t miss the lard toast, the Barrosã tartar and the cockles with turnips, and for dessert the sweet potato with smoky ice cream and honey. Prado is also a good place for a glass of wine where all the references are natural, organic and biodynamic.
