Reporter, anchor and international correspondent are just some of the positions that Márcio Gomes carries in its extensive luggage in the main broadcasters in the country.

Working as a journalist for more than 25 years, Márcio is from Rio de Janeiro and began his career in the 1990s. A two-time winner of the Comunique-se Award, he moved to Asia in 2013, where he was a correspondent in Tokyo for five years.

Some time later, back in Brazil, Márcio became part of the team of professionals at CNN Brazil and since November 2020 he has been the presenter of CNN Prime Time a newscast that occupies the broadcaster’s prime time.

Away from the cameras, the journalist also strolls through the flavors of Sao Paulo and confesses that, after the worst of the pandemic, he and his family are getting to know the city better. “I notice that, in addition to the variety, the speed of emergence of new restaurants is noteworthy. Hard to follow!” he jokes.

Next, Márcio Gomes lists the last restaurants he visited that served new – and surprising – discoveries for his taste:


Chef’s newest restaurant Eric Jacquin It has a beautiful, lively atmosphere and excellent food. Jacquin himself came to my table (how lucky!) and I found him very kind.

The house has Italian influences, and I had a generous rib. Loved it!

I was very curious to know one of the restaurants in the new Rosewood Hotelwhich is close to the headquarters of the CNN in Sao Paulo. It’s a beautiful building, a gift to the city.

It’s the Blaisewhich is located on the ground floor of the historic Matarazzo Maternity Building, is a great restaurant, which functions as a contemporary brasserie with Brazilian ingredients.

Here, I had excellent meat and, for dessert, a chocolate cake mix with mate matcha (R$65) – to remember the times when I lived in Japan – with fresh raspberries and vanilla ice cream.

Rua Itapeva, 435 – Bela Vista, São Paulo, SP / Tel.: (11) 3797-0500 / Opening hours: Monday to Saturday from 7:00 pm to 11:30 pm / Reservations via site.

Trattoria Fasano

I know it’s nothing new, but the environment of Trattoria Fasano it’s so beautiful and the food is so good it’s worth returning. We have already stayed in the outdoor area, on the edge of an artificial lake – excellent at this time when the heat should subside.

On my last visit, I arrived very late at night, with the house almost closing, and my family and I were made very welcome, and the staff called us by name.

From the menu, I recommend the polenta with Taleggio fonduta (R$73) and the risotto of the day (R$119) – which I would eat every day!

Horácio Lafer) – Itaim Bibi – São Paulo, SP / Tel.: (11) 3167-3322 / Opening hours: Monday to Thursday from 12pm to 3pm and from 19:00 to 00:00; Friday and Saturday from 12 pm to 4 pm and from 7 pm to midnight; Sunday from 12pm to 5pm / Reservations via site.


THE kidoairaku is a “root Japanese” that is in the Freedom, without the window-chic side of some houses in the city. The restaurant in heart of the Japanese community in São Paulo it seems to me a real little piece of Japan – from the garden at the door to the kindness with which we are received.

The menu is quite varied, with a selection of sushi and sashimi, curry and juubako (dish served in a returnable box from Japan). The sakes are great too – remember to drink in moderation!

L’Entrecôte d’Olivier and Esther Rooftop, by chef Olivier Anquier

I’ve recently been to two chef’s restaurants Olivier Anquier : The L’Entrecôte d’Olivier it’s the Esther Rooftop. The first one (I’m ashamed to admit it), I didn’t know they only served steak and fries (in good Portuguese!).

It is a bistro with a unique menu concept, where the starter is a leaf salad with characteristic seasoning and the main course is an entrecôte drizzled with a special sauce. Delicious! I felt like I was in Pariswith crispy and dry fries.

Esther, on the other hand, has a special value: it takes us to the surroundings of Praça da República, a point viewed with some suspicion, even a little fear, as it is in the center of the city.

Located in the chef’s former apartment, in a listed building from 1930, the place has a privileged view of the center and pleases with uncomplicated cuisine, such as the ceviche starter (R$ 63) and well-prepared drinks.
