Lisbon’s newest restaurant is also a gourmet shop. It’s called “Clara Chiado” and is located in Chiado, on Largo Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro, a square surrounded by restaurants and cafÃ©s. This one is entered through a “gourmet space,” an area selling gourmet products which includes a large selection of wines, as well as serving some finger food and light meals to nibble on. At the restaurant, the ambience is a little more formal and serves a mostly contemporary Portuguese menu with international influences.
The gourmet area opens early, at 10AM for a late breakfast or light meal, while the restaurant is open for lunch from Monday to Friday from 12PM to 3PM, and once again for dinner between 7:30PM and 11:30PM. On Saturdays it’s only open for dinner and is closed on Sundays.
