Award Entry

Brazillian cuisine, with a side order of Beatles... 

Located in Ipanema, a charming neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro, 'Forneria' is a very cozy spot where friends meet for a sandwich and a nice talk. Having an informal atmosphere, it is totally tuned with the 'carioca' relaxed spirit and way of living. A large rolling door in the front keeps the place widely open to the street - full width, full height - just like an extension of the sidewalk, and looking most inviting to the passerby.

In the entrance, a wood pergola creates a transition area between the hot exterior and the cooled interior, some few tables in a shadowed yet bright space. The long rectangular salon is divided lengthwise by an L-shaped counter, tables to one side and an open kitchen to the other. The menu features a long list of pastas, salads, carpaccios and classics of the sandwich universe, ranging from tramezzinis made of 'pan de miga' bread to typical Neapolitan breads baked in wood-fired ovens.

After 11pm, Forneria also offers more than six hundred options of classic rock ranging from The Beatles to The Clash.
