Located in the historical center of Lençóis, the Cozinha Aberta is in a row house divided in two.
The clients are able to watch the food being prepared and enjoy works of art while relishing the meal. From the verandah, the veggie garden at the bank of the river enhance the sensation of being in middle of Nature itself.
Organic products, pink shrimp, meats, handmade pasta, vegan dishes, and artisanal ice cream are part of the basic menu. Contemporary cuisine based in the slow food concept, functional food and, of course, the use of top seasonings and unusual combinations of local ingredients beautifully laid out, turns the Cozinha Aberta into an obligatory stop for everyone visiting Lençóis.
