“The particular strength of the MAB’s permanent collection of nearly 3,000 works is early 20th-century Brazilian modernism (Di Cavalcanti, Tarsila do Amaral, Victor Brecheret, Anita Malfatti), but it has also mounted hit exhibitions that were...

“Built around 15 years ago amidst a lot of opposition, this upscale shopping mall has become a symbol of the neighborhood, giving it new energy and pushing up real estate prices in the environs. Its design respects the historical buildings around...

“What I like the most at this steakhouse is its winter garden, which feels like a leafy backyard. The ojo de bife is delicious, but, because I tend to be on a perennial diet, I usually order the fraldinha, a Brazilian cut of beef that is quite...

Hotel Tivoli is one of the most beautiful hotels I have stayed at. It is a classy Portuguese hotel with great service, modern chic decor and delicious breakfast spread. Ask for a room overlooking 25 de Mayo, the main street in Sao Paulo and you...

The Jardins neighborhood is known as a pretty chic part of the city, and rightfully so due to its legion of high-end clothing stores and fancy restaurants. However, its location can't be beat. A short walk away from Avenida Paulista, o Centro, and...

If you ask the average paulistano for a recommendation for Mexican food, chances are they will send you to Sí Señor, a ubiquitous chain that tends rather toward Tex Mex. For a more "authentic" experience, head to Hecho en Mexico in the...
