My friend is going to Lisbon and while I was compiling my notes I discovered that Assinatura closed. I had a mind-blowing meal there in 2013. I'm so bummed to see it's gone. It combined great ingredients, extreme creativity, but most importantly, everything I had was incredibly delicious. I feel like it was a rare instance of fine dining where creativity and deliciousness weren't remotely getting in each other's way. Plus I felt I was getting local flavor, the dishes were based in local culture.
Is there another restaurant like that to recommend to my friend? Anyone know where the chef went?
