Carioca is the name given to a native of Rio, but the kitchen at Bistro Rio Carioca is in fact headed up by young Swiss chef Elia Schramm. The food has a Brazilian accent though, with Schramm making good use of fresh local ingredients. In a 19th-century building in leafy Laranjeiras, à-la-carte diners can enjoy light dishes such as smoked salmon salad with endives and toasted nuts, and mains such as filet mignon with mini vegetables in a red wine sauce. The set menu is changed regularly to keep the dining experience as fresh and interesting as the ingredients themselves.
