Tourists tend to skip the Botafogo district, a heavily residential area edging the Guanabara Bay shore, north of Copacabana, but Miam Miam makes it worth at least one visit. Aimed unashamedly at the young and hip, it is modeled on '50s and '60s designs, from vinyl-and-chrome chairs and acrylic place mats to the tortoiseshell-and-orange Formica-topped tables. Indeed, it's as much bar as restaurant, attracting more than its fair share of Rio's slinky and svelte, who linger over inventive, fruit-based cocktails as an eclectic soundtrack—ranging from bossa nova to wildly hippy flute tunes—provides a punchy background. Nevertheless, the shaven-headed waiters manage to combine cool attitude with warm service, and chef Roberta Ciasca, who learned her trade at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, cooks an inventive menu with panache, pairing duck trouxinha dumplings with caramelized orange, pepper-crusted tuna with lentil ragout, or stewing up spicy prawn moquecas with curry.

Open Tuesdays through Fridays 7:30 pm to 12:30 am, Saturdays 8 pm to 1:30 am.
