A Figueira Rubaiyat 

In a city as expansive as [simpletag]Sao Paulo[/simpletag] it’s amazing to find a hint of nature at the centre of a restaurant. A Figueira Rubaiyat is a restaurant that provides one of the more beautiful dining settings in the world. The restaurant, having been built around a fig tree that may be more than a 100 years old, spreads out below the tree’s branches. Tables are set with white plates filled of small appetisers. The glass ceiling may allow sunshine in but A Figueira Rubaiyat is best enjoyed at night when subtle lighting allows for a quiet atmosphere that seems miles away from the sprawling city.

Although the food is excellent, A Figueira Rubaiyat is all about the ambiance. It’s a place to drink Argentinean wines and generally enjoy being far from home with so much to see.
