Well-crafted burgers (without the exotic add-ons that are currently en vogue) and a limited selection of dinner plates are what keep patrons of Ritz coming back for more.  Gay visitors to Sao Paulo descend upon Ritz based on every guide to the the city ever published.  Straight neighbors love it too, which adds up to a queue of people waiting for a table on the weekend.  There are benches to keep you comfortable while you chat with everyone else waiting to get inside.

The front bar is a nice place to eat if you are having dinner-for-one.  One tip for business travelers stuck working at their hotels.  You can order Ritz em Casa, the restaurant’s very popular delivery service.  Their phone number, menu (in English), and hours are available at the website link below.  There are now three Ritz locations to keep up with demand, but the original on Alameda Franca is the best, and the gayest.
