Nestled in a surprisingly quiet and green street in the neighborhood of Itaim Bibi, L'Amitié is the perfect place to spend a long, romantic lunch. Choose to sit in the cozy interior of the restaurant or outside to watch life pass by while French chef Yann Corderon prepares your meal. Prices range from about 70-100 Reais per person, but the price is well worth it. My favorite dish is the Duck Confit (O Confit de Pato). The restaurant accepts all major credit cards and is open for lunch during the week from 12 pm to 3 pm.
