Lourdes – Belo Horizonte, Brazil

While I recognize that nearly none of my readership will ever visit Brazil’s third largest city, Belo Horizonte (B.H.), it is my partner’s home city and a place we’ve traveled to over the years.  B.H. or Belo for short, is a sprawling metropolis of more than 5 million.  While this publishes, I am currently in Florianopolis, but thought I’d share a bit about where I was last week.

When we visit family in B.H. we make it a point to come to Lourdes for dinner.  Depicted immediately below is the trendy o Dadiva Restaurant,  Oak Restaurant and Wine Bar and one of the desserts we tried at Oak (yes, I said “one of”…)

Belo Horizonte LourdesThere are many dining options here and in the surrounding blocks, which means there is plenty of pedestrian traffic and great people watching.   Main plates range between $25 – $35.

If one does find themselves visiting Belo Horizonte or has friends who live there, I would suggest dinner in Lourdes followed by a night out at the gay clubs / bars in neighboring Savassi.
