La Casserole restaurant in São Paulo fêtes 50th anniversary

La Casserole is a classic French bistro in the Old Downtown. Owner Marie-France Henry “wanted to celebrate by recreating the casual and convivial atmosphere of a boteco". A boteco is a simple bar, frequented at all hours, always serving draft beer and finger foods. In homage of the Brazilian botecos, she created a special anniversary menu. The Boteco Chique menu costs R$ 95 per person (plus drinks and tips) and is available from Tuesdays to Saturdays. Here's what the menu includes: Crudités with tapenade, grissinis, Vietnamese rolls stuffed with pulled duck and bean sprouts, to share. Main courses are placed in the center of the table, meant to be shared, family style:
  • Scallops on bed of coconut and almond cream
  • Moules à la crème
  • Agnolotti ”del plin” stuffed with brie and pear,
  • vanilla oil
  • Crisp breast of quail with com pequi sauce (pequi is a fruit from Brazil's Centro-Oeste region)
  • Carré of pork, carpaccio of caramelized apple (pictured above)
