I just learned that La Plancha, our favorite seafood restaurant in Barra da Tijuca has closed. I don't know yet if that means "closed closed" or "closed to reopen closed."

Another restaurant recommended by business colleagues. No English is spoken here, so come armed with at least a few phrases and some seafood vocabulary. What sets La Plancha apart is the extremely fresh taste of the food, combined with an utterly third-world looking location. It...More
