Jojo Cafe Bistro, Jardim Botanico, Rio de Janeiro
Jojö is a great place to try contemporary Brazilian-Asian fusion cooking. I love the risotto with shrimp and pepper mixed with curry. The place is tiny, maybe five tables. The owner, Joana, always makes sure I get a great dinner—and a treat, like a dessert or a glass of champagne. Rua Pacheco Leão 812, 55/(21) 3565-9007, jojocafe.com.br
