In a city where restaurants come and go, returning stronger after a devastating fire is the stuff of miracles. After a blaze nearly destroyed Old Lisbon on Coral Way, owner Carlos Silva set to making a proper comeback. "I expanded and made it more modern because it was very old.” Once again a staple in a neighborhood known for international dining, Silva and his talented team deliver unexpected surprises. The modern-rustic dining room is accented by an open kitchen. Dishes such as carne de porco a alentejana — a surprisingly light pork stew made with potatoes, clams, chunks of pork tenderloin, and pickled vegetables tossed in a white-wine garlic sauce — give diners a chance to taste the unexpected flavors of Portugal, so often eclipsed by neighboring Spain. With a wine cellar that features Old World selections, as well as Portuguese beers and exceptional service from the knowledgeable staff, Old Lisbon is a comeback story that's here to stay.
