Helena Rizzo and Daniel Redondo are both in charge of Maní, the gourmet restaurant, Manioca, a casual version, at Shopping Iguatemi, and Padoca do Maní, a delicious bakery near the main restaurant. They met in Spain while working at the famous El Celler de Can Roca. At their restaurant, they mix Brazilian ingredients with recipes they discovered during their many travels. It is one of Brazil’s best restaurants, without being over the top. Helena has won many prizes, including Latin America’s best female chef. Make sure you book a table before you head to São Paulo.
