The name says everything you need to know about the 23rd floor restaurant at Tivoli Mofarrej São Paulo. SEEN Restaurant & Bar impresses right off the bat with sweeping views of the skyline, and elegant interior design, which takes full advantage of its picturesque location. Then, of course, there's the cuisine, a diverse offering of innovative Brazilian fusion cooking, and classic Japanese dishes presented with contemporary flair.
Begin your excursion with a stop at the 360-degree, brass bar in the center of room, designed to take advantage of the city views below from any perch. Once seated, order one of Heitor Marin's famous cocktails, like the sultry Liffey, a whiskey-based tipple infused with smoky clove bark.
SEEN Restaurant and Bar is one of the most elegant, energetic hangouts in São Paulo with its varied gastronomy and elaborate cocktails.
SEEN is the signature restaurant concept of visionary Franco-Portuguese chef and entrepreneur, Olivier da Costa, created in partnership with the restaurant's resident chef, William Ribeiro. Their menu? A creative combination of Brazilian fusion dishes like manioc brava, and a carpaccio made with fresh hearts of palm, mango, and avocado.
Brazil is home to the largest Japanese community outside of Japan, and SEEN’s sushi bar, spearheaded by chef Massahiko Enohi does not disappoint in flavor or presentation. Take your pick from the robust sushi menu, which includes Enohi's inventive truffled salmon nigiri, where the fish is slightly seared, then drizzled with truffle oil and sea salt, or the SEEN roll, where salmon and tuna get a kick from the inclusion of crispy rice, spicy mayo and jalapeno peppers. Naturally, sake is taken seriously, and SEEN's dedicated sommelier, Yasmin Yonashiro, is happy to suggest pairings to enhance your meal.
The decorative sushi bar is as inventive as the menus. The countertop is inlaid with original tiles by Francisco Brennand, considered Brazil's greatest ceramicist. In the mid 20th century, Brennand revitalized his family's abandoned tile factory in Pernambuco to create his own line of decorative ceramic tiles. Here, they serve as a reminder of Brazil's diverse cultural heritage.
