Lisbon, Portugal, Europe: Miguel Câncio Martins breathes life into Largo's walls with jellyfish filled color changing backlit aquariums.

Two of Portugal's heavyweights, designer Miguel Câncio Martins and acclaimed chef Miguel de Castro e Silva, joined forces to open Largo in 2009. The black-and-white carpets, wire mesh lamps, exposed stone ceilings, and backlit aquariums of jellyfish make a big impact, but it is Castro e Silva who keeps the foodies coming. His traditional Portuguese dishes refashioned into innovative concoctions include a trio of fish (tuna tataki, horse mackerel tartare, and marinated sea bass) and guinea fowl with chestnuts, raisins, and pine nuts. If you're looking for local fare, you'll still find classic Portuguese eats on the menu, such as codfish with wild mint bread quenelles and roasted black pork with chickpeas and wild mushroom stew. Largo is jumping at dinnertime, though lunch offers a better value.—Anja Mutić
