Revisit Olivier Avenue Brunch
Sundays are reserved for the family, with lazy mornings and good food at the table. To celebrate this spirit Olivier Avenida has renewed its signature brunch just in time for the colder days to come, with a greater focus on healthy options. Maintaining its unmistakable stamp, chef Olivier da Costa brings lighter proposals, in which salads take the lead, with more than ten varieties: from mixed salad to quinoa salad, avocado and grilled fennel, to celery salad, apple and mustard dijon, or by fusilli salad nero. Those who prefer the usual breakfast options can enjoy a variety of breads, cereals, jams, yogurts and pastries, followed by boards stuffed with different types of cheese and cold cuts. For the keenest appetites, hot dishes such as maple syrup pancakes, scrambled eggs and scones will not disappoint, with the final touch being classic desserts, from fruit to classic rice pudding. On Avenida da Liberdade, Olivier Avenida is the oldest restaurant in the Olivier group, renowned for its Mediterranean menu and excellent space and service, ensuring delicious moments for those you love the most.

Explore the world of theater
The João Garcia Miguel Company has just presented its latest project, Silent City, a performing arts show that premiered on November 27 at the Iberian Theater. In order to bring together artists who wanted to showcase their art and talent, the initiative challenged artists to explore their imagination with the sole premise of having silence as a principle. Thus is born the project Silent City, where until November 30 will be demonstrated the performances created by the candidates, with the help of director João Garcia Miguel. The goal was thus to create performances that, in addition to focusing on the silence in the city, showed its rarity in the current world and its importance in the contemplation of art.
