Eats: Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal (B)

No matter how near or far you are from home, a recommendation for a good restaurant or bar is always nice to have. EATS is a collection of places that I’ve enjoyed during my travels.

Hands down my favorite dinner and drinks spot in Lisbon, Artis Bar is a small space with a small menu located in the Bairro Alto neighborhood. But as the saying goes, good things come in small packages because Artis’ offering of delicious “petiscos” (the Portuguese take on tapas) hit the spot, especially when paired with a local wine. The environment is casual and cozy, making Artis a great place to grab a bite or linger into the night.

Also in the Bairro Alto, with Grapes & Bites the name says it all. Cozy up to a wine barrel table and try one of the nearly 200 varieties of wine offered. The bar also doubles as a store that sells wine and other gourmet products from around the region.

I couldn’t resist ordering a bottle of vinho verde, Portugal’s “green wine” not because of its color but because its “young” age. The result is a wine that’s fresh, crisp and often slightly sparkling, and this variety actually accounts for the largest DOC of Portuguese wines. Try a glass along with an assortment of meats, cheeses, fruit and nuts and relax as you enjoy the live music, which begins at 7pm nightly. ......
