Integrated into the sprawling Centro Cultural de Belém, A Commenda is the spot for a pre-concert meal or a lunchtime break from pounding the art trail. It's an airy, cool white space with a broad terrace overlooking the Tagus, and its kitchen turns out a sophisticated take on Portuguese and Mediterranean cuisine. Seasonal dishes can include fava beans with chouriço and blood sausage, pork cheeks accompanied by chestnut purée, or baked rice with duck. Lisbonites flock here on Sundays for cozido à portuguesa, a much-loved boiled lunch featuring a huge mix of meats, sausages, and vegetables.
