Attimo, São Paulo. Best New Restaurant at the Wallpaper Design Awards 2013
The prestigious British magazine Wallpaper explain about Attimo,
Attimo is described by its owner Marcelo Fernandes as an Italo-caipira, or Italian/rustic Brazilian restaurant. By which he means that chef Jefferson Rueda serves both classic pasta dishes and local specialities such as coxinha de galinha.
Attimo is housed in a 1950s house by local architect David Libeskind, carefully restored by Fernandes’ long-time collaborator Naoki Otake. The architect preserved the building’s signature cobogó (patterned partition) and used marble and hardwoods to craft a clean, sophisticated space. The interiors, together with Gilberto Elkis’ stunning landscaping and Rueda’s flawlessly executed offering, make it one of the best new restaurants this year.
