Fresh, organic, delicious: these three words can perfectly define our experience at Inspira Boutique Hotel restaurant Open Brasserie Mediterrânica. I could have chosen a list of several other words, including the kindness how we're received, but if I can only choose three words to describe this restaurant these would be the ones.
The first time I went to lunch at Open (you can read all about it by clicking here) I become a fan of the all concept that this restaurant evolves: the incredible dishes created of top organic ingredients, including gluten and lactose free options with the plus of vegetarian and vegan dishes (pretty amazing, right?), and also because of the wonderful contribution that we can give to the foundation PumpAid - Water for Life by purchasing a bottle of water. How special it is to know that thousands of people in Africa are having access to safe water supplies thanks to this action, so don't forget, next time you'll go to Open or to Inspira please buy one of these bottle waters, your simple gesture can make all the difference for thousands of lives.
Open restaurant is one of the restaurants that I always recommend in Lisbon, simply because the food is truly fantastic. We started our Saturday dinner with a tasty amuse-bouche, being followed by an entrée of Organic Vegetables with Goat Cheese. The main courses were Stewed Guinea Fowl thigh with Mushroom Risotto (which could have been a bit heavy for dinner, but honestly I didn't care about it, at Open you can enjoy the best Risottos in town!), and an incredible Rack of Lamb with its aromatic herbs crust, Mashed Potatoes and Vegetables which was the winner of the night. For dessert we shared a Chocolate Mousse with Caramel Foam and Peanut Butter and a Puff Pastry of Rocha Pear with Cottage Cheese and Eucalyptus Honey, the second one delighted our palate.
Now, to end this article of course I'm going to choose more three words: comforting, natural, real food that make us want to comeback to Open Brasserie Mediterrânica restaurant. I bet that on the next time I won't resist (again) to the Risotto...same old story ;)
