Voted Among Top 50 Best Restaurants in Latin America
Thomas Troisgros is the exponent chef of Olympe, which gained a Michelin star and was selected as one of the 50 Best Restaurants of Latin America. Its menu blends contemporary French cuisine with Brazilian and global influences.
The excellence of Thomas’ work shines through in his national and international awards. In 2013, Olympe was included in Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants, a list developed by “Restaurant” magazine, and it has been annually selected ever since. In 2015, Olympe received the first Michelin Star – a distinction which it has kept until this day. In 2016, Olympe was welcomed into the hall of the world’s best wine menu, receiving three stars from the British magazine “World of Fine Wine”.
Besides the awards, Olympe is a part of Rio de Janeiro’s gastronomy culture. Founded more than 30 years ago by chef Claude Troisgros, Thomas’ father, the restaurant has innovated since its creation, combining the use of local ingredients – like jiló, passion fruit, açaí and cassava – with techniques pertaining to high gastronomy, thus becoming a world reference and consolidating Troisgros’ surname also in Brazil.
