Benihana Brasil: the finest Japanese restaurant in Brazil

Since Brazil was announced as the host of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games, it brought a lot of attention to the country, and especially to São Paulo, which is considered one of the finest places for gastronomy in the world. Benihana Brasil opened its doors in December 2012. Its kitchen is led by Carlos Ohata, one of the top chefs in Japanese cuisine in Brazil. It also has one of the biggest sake cellars in the country, with awarded Japanese brands.
