In a previous post, I pointed out how surprised I was by having a pastry chef who graduated from the Cordon Blue in Paris, France join the Pererenan community with the opening of a super lovely cafe called Esperluette.
Now I am equally surprised by two brothers from Brazil who opened a creative, cool, and tropically slick cocktail bar on our main drag. The name Leblon refers to both a beach and a neighborhood in famed Rio de Janeiro.
The cocktails are super yummy, although I’ve only tried one drink, the dragonfruit & hibiscus caipiroska.
I consumed the dried orange slice and it was worth the price of admission, as it was the best infused slice of fruit I ever had.
The food options are not extensive, but you’re not going to visit Leblon in order to chow down. It’s about sipping cocktails and chatting with friends, enjoying the evening breeze just a five minute walk from our place.
This stylish spot is not worth missing. Enjoy
