Hachiko in Downtown Rio is one of the most popular sushi bars in the city. Serving a wide range of Japanese food with pan-Asian undertones and a strong western influence, the restaurant is essentially a contemporary, fusion affair. Uber chic meets the exotic East at this joint, which features traditional-looking bamboo bar-stools, wooden tables and chairs against a backdrop of intense crimsons. Buzzing with people and positive energy, Hachiko is a great place for amazing food and interesting conversations.
Satyricon has been a delight to seafood lovers since its opening in 1983. The seafood here is simply superb, especially the lobster, shrimp and squid, which is grilled and served with memorable sauces. Choose your fish, lobster and crab from the counter that is caught fresh and get ready for a delish meal. They do have a small section in their menu for meat eaters and vegetarians in the form of risottos and pastas. Pair your dishes with a wine from their wine cellar which boasts more than 500 labels of vinos. The restaurant is large, pleasant and always full, and is one of the preferred places of artists, businessmen and politicians
