A LISBON RESTAURANT HONORS THE TAPAS TRADITION WITH STYLE
A Spanish native, Sergi Arola grew up with tapas. At his namesake restaurant in Sintra, Portugal, he’s updated the tradition for the present day. Set within a stylish, Mediterranean-inspired space, he offers a menu of creative Portuguese dishes. Chefs are on full view from the bar and dining room, where translucent aluminum curtains offer a hint of privacy. A resident DJ spins each evening; in summer the music spills out onto the terrace.
