Charcutaria Lisboa is a modern-looking restaurant serving traditional cuisine. Out front there's a bar opening up to the street with a decor that blends 200-year-old stonework with contemporay furnishings and Asian-themed artwork. The simple, white dining room at the back offers a view over the 18th-century townhouses downhill from the Chiado district. Charcutaria opened in 2013 in its current location on the landmark Rua de Alecrim, a street that rises steeply from the riverside up to the chic Chiado, after building its reputation in an out-of-downtown site. The cooking here is rooted in the traditions of the Alentejo, a region of wide plains south of Lisbon where cattle, sheep, and semi-wild black pigs roam amid plantations of olives, vines, and cork oak. Alentejo classics like mini-chicken pies or wild asparagus with scrambled egg are featured starters, followed by mains such as grouper with cilantro or heritage beef with paprika-spiced, bread-based accompaniment called migas. There are desserts inspired by recipes developed in the region's old convents and an excellent selection of Alentejo wines, with a special focus on the strong reds for which the region is famed.
