The elegant Empório Fasano in Jardins, in São Paulo

South America

A little piece of Italy in the heart of São Paulo! This is Empório Fasano in Jardins, which I went to see on my last trip to São Paulo and was impressed. Opened just under a year ago, it is located in a three-story building measuring more than a thousand square meters, and brings together a salumeria, a rotisserie, a bakery, a small shop and a wine cellar with more than a thousand labels. In addition, it has a charming café on the terrace, where it is also possible to have lunch, dinner or arrange a happy hour. In other words, it offers a wide selection of gourmet products and Italian specialties, such as, for example, fresh pasta, olive oil, wines, cheeses, meats, freshly ground coffee, among others. Certainly a unique gastronomic experience in SP. Therefore, it's worth a trip to the Empório whether to give someone a gift, buy something for yourself or eat there.
