Concierge.com's insider take:
This modern take on a tasca (a traditional Portuguese tavern) on a corner in the residential Campo de Ourique neighborhood has typical large windows overlooking the street yet a simple, contemporary interior. Chef Vítor Sobral pioneered petiscos, the Portuguese-style tapas that dominate the menu at Tasca da Esquina. These creative small plates pay homage to the classic dishes served in a traditional tavern yet are a bit fancier. Go for the affordable tasting menus, which change daily and feature anything from creamy chestnut soup to warm shrimp with aioli to breaded filet of cod over coriander rice. The menu isn't available in English, but the staff will be happy to fill you in.—Anja Mutić
