Esquina Mocotó

Rodrigo Oliveira has changed the face of Brazilian cuisine at Mocotó, with its community spirited down-to- earth atmosphere but in-the- clouds cooking. This recently opened sister resto Esquina Mocotó is very close by, is a simple mix of bar and restaurant, serving classics from the Brazilian northeastern area, with a creative high-end touch. Elegantly cluttered with brazilian folk art and in a street-wise area very far from the gastronomic core of the city, this is a destination in itself. Traditional in every sense, but with attention to detail. Rodrigo has been developing his baking techniques and now produces one of the best sourdough breads in town. This is also quite close to São Paulo International Airport, and planning your transport is vital in this sprawling city, so its the ultimate place to stop for a lunch or dinner the same day you’re flying. Old Mocotó takes no reservations, the new Mocotó Esquina does.
