Pap'Açorda, Lisbon

57–59 Rua da Atalaia
Portugal 1200-037
Tel: 351 21 346 4811's insider take:

Yet another co-owner of Bico do Sapato (there are four) is Fernando Fernandes. A restaurateur with his finger firmly on Lisbon's pulse, he also owns this place, opened in 1981 and full ever since. Unlike its fabulous half-sister, Pap'Açorda offers a modest check, and it reverses the ratio of great food vs. show-off quotient. This is all about real. If you want to try (almost) unreconstructed Portuguese dishes, here's your place—and it's handily located in this month's up-and-coming-back neighborhood, beautiful Bairro Alto. Since the restaurant is named after Açorda Real, a lobster and shrimp dish, it stands to reason that this is a good thing to order.

Restaurant is closed Sundays and Mondays. (It is also typically closed for one week in June, but exact dates vary from year to year.)
