Famed chef Alberto Landgraf strikes again with Oteque, his latest foodie project in Brazil. This is a temple to fine dining, with a concept and a menu that rewards guests with authentic local flavors blended with modern gastronomic innovations. Décor is warm and casual, with rich wood surfaces and muted colors throughout. The kitchen design is open, allowing guests to feel as if they are part of the action. This is a space to enjoy family and friends, with a tremendous friendliness that encourages socializing and entertainment.<br /><style>&lt;!-- /* Font Definitions */ @font-face {font-family:Gadugi; mso-font-alt:Arial; mso-font-charset:128; mso-generic-font-family:swiss; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:0 0 0 0 0 0;} /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-unhide:no; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:none; mso-hyphenate:none; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} .MsoChpDefault {mso-style-type:export-only; mso-default-props:yes; font-size:10.0pt; mso-ansi-font-size:10.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size:10.0pt;} @page WordSection1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.WordSection1 {page:WordSection1;} --&gt; </style>

The Food

The atmosphere may be casual, however the menu is extremely sophisticated and modern. There's only one option, a multi-course meal with nearly a dozen elements. The most recent menu includes cured grouper with leek and pine nuts, grilled squid in pork fat and a vegetable emulsion, and duck breast with glazed pumpkin and shiitake. Flavors and textures are rich and satisfying, with an emphasis on exploring new possibilities and combinations. Ingredients are overwhelmingly sourced locally, with particular attention paid to quality and freshness. Several wine options are offered to pair with the menu and the staff is very helpful in suggesting suitable matches.

Last Word

Oteque is destination dining at its finest, a grand cuisine experience that successfully takes authentic Brazilian favorites and re-imagines them for a sophisticated 21st century foodie audience.
