This sleek, urban restaurant has garnered a reputation for gracious service and a creative menu of Portuguese gastronomy. Dishes such as the alheira de caça de mirandela, an intriguing combination of breaded sausage with pork, garlic and chilli served with roasted red potato, quail's egg and pureed broccoli, have introduced visitors to the delights of regional cuisine, presented with artistic flair and contemporary flourishes. Besides the a la carte choice, there's a menu degustation for the more serious foodie to consider. The cellar heaves with over 300 wines from across the country, and it's possible to taste a selection in the salon (enoteca) during late afternoons and early evenings. A noted business lunch venue, Avenue is equally regarded as an informal fine dining spot and is conveniently located near the Hotel Sofitel Lisbon.
