Rio Open presented by Claro promises to make fans’ mouths water. Leblon Boulevard, our 10,000m² area of food and entertainment in the same level of the biggest tournaments of the world, gathers the best of carioca cuisine. With renowned chefs, good restaurants, bars and food trucks, the audience will be able to taste sandwiches, hamburgers, healthy food, ice cream, Japanese food, coffee, beer and Brazilian ‘petiscos’ and ‘brigadeiros’.
The bar Seu Vidal is famous for its petiscos, the Brazilian term for tapas, and sandwiches, as well as the Ateliê Benoliel, with amazing hamburgers. CT, by French superstar chef Claude Troisgros, will have a special dish with sausage and Brazilian farofa. At Geneal you can find the authentic carioca hot dog and at Cogu you will experience all kinds of recipes with mushrooms. Las Empanadas brings the Argentinian flavor and Benkei presents the Brazilian version of Japanese food.
In case you are more into sweets, you can taste brigadeiros, a traditional Brazilian creamy chocolate ball at Fabiana D’Angelo, and the ice cream of Mil Frutas. Beer enthusiasts should go to the Petra Bar, with a giant screen broadcasting matches and an amazing view of Christ the Redeemer. The Espaço Deck will also have a drink bar.
One of the most exciting places of the Rio Open is Praça Rio Open (Rio Open Square), where the concerts take place. “Our idea is to always have a complete schedule for the family, with the matches, shopping and concerts. We close the night with several popular hits played some of our best bands”, said Marcia Casz, General Director of the Rio Open.
