Tuesday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – Three French expatriates in Rio opened Canastra in Ipanema years ago with a simple formula, lots of casual outdoor seating, delicious yet affordable wines, and quality fresh bread and imported cheeses to snack on.
The recipe has been a huge success and on Tuesdays they offer a fresh oysters festival, a dozen for R$40, which brings in a big crowd every week. Come early though, because they close at 1AM.
