Situated in Bairro do Avillez and accessible through a hidden passage, O Beco (Portuguese for "The Alley") is the latest project of José Avillez, one of Portugal's most award-winning chefs. Shrouded in mystery, this restaurant is inspired by the clubs of the 20s and 50s of the previous century, combining a single high-kitchen space and a cabaret bar with two live shows each day.

Just like with the MiniBar, the idea here is to amaze with a menu made up of twelve distinct moments and many unexpected creations. That was the case for the olives with dark chocolate and cumin seeds, the spicy tuna pizza, the chives and trout eggs and even the silver-egged chicken (Photos: Bruno Calado).

Among the artists invited by José Avillez to collaborate in this project are Ana Anahory and Felipa Almeida (interior design), Joana Astolfi (adding creative details) and Hanriette Arcelin, the creator of the artistic mural portraying Dita Von Teese - and which was painted (by Patricia Braga) on the walls of the old chapel of the Convento da Trindade, just above the bar.

But the fact is that Avillez has a family tradition in this business: «In 1908, my great-great-grandfather Joseph Ereira opened Maxim's at the Palácio Foz. As far as I know, Maxim's was the most elegant club in Lisbon. Besides being a restaurant and bar, it was an entertainment venue with music, dancing and gambling. BECO is inspired by Maxim's glamour and its bohemian and sophisticated atmosphere. In a secluded and exclusive place, with a restricted number of seats, BECO offers a unique dinner-show experience. When you enter Bairro do Avillez, you don't expect to find a place like this», says the chef.

 

Some caveats: the dinners at O Beco are organized as show moments (at precise times) and to gain access you must purchase a ticket in advance through the website or by telephone. O Beco has 12 tables and 4 seats at the counter and is for adults-only. Photographs and recordings are prohibited...
