Japanese food is huge in Rio and Sushi Leblon has been a runaway success for 20 years. Unless you show up before 8pm, you´ll have to wait in line however, and no, tables don´t free up at midnight… the place boils till 2am! Their success stems from their innovations in sushi and japanese dishes as well as from their hip Leblon address. Note: it is customary for Japanese restaurants in Brazil to over fill your sake box, as a sign of generosity. Be sure to try the strawberry caipisake, to get the night started.
Recent awards and prizes: Winner of “best japanese” by “Revista Veja Comer e Beber” for many of the last ten years.
