Opened in August 2021, the Sobrado da Cidade restaurant, located in downtown Rio de Janeiro, is launching its new menu. In addition to adding new dishes, the establishment also researched to insert historical information.
One of the owners, Carla Teixeira, said that, during the research, she discovered that Dom Pedro II was a collector of menus, having a collection of more than 1,200 menus. He was crazy about chicken soup, so much so that he insisted on having a piece of soup in between of the plays.
“With this discovery in hand, we are going to launch the dish in honor of the bicentennial that will be a chicken in brown sauce. The Sobrado is adjusting increasingly to its proposal of seasoning food with history,” she said.
On the new menu, next to each dish, there is a “second name” with a historical reference, for example, Tartare with potato chips – Companhia Salinas de Navegação; Mignon medallion with a thousand potato leaves – Barão de Peixoto Serra; Salad – DNA Leopoldina Adelaide de Guimarães; between others.
The menu itself has a brief explanation of the names: “All the names of the main dishes refer to residents or the names of people who had businesses that this mansion housed. The names of desserts are from products that were once sold in the property “.
