Quituart will arguably offer one of the best social gathering places in Brasilia, but it is still not known to many expats in Brasilia. Tucked away right in the middle of Lago Norte, it is a cooperative gastronomy and art space run by Lago Norte residence.
Now when you approach Quituart, you might not think much about the structure, a huge tin shed that looks pretty run down. But inside you will find over 25 spaces that sell a bit of art, more alcohol and a lot of different foods. And they surround a big open space where people can consume their food and beverages.
At Quituart you will find food from every corner of Brazil and one of the best places must be Jamburanas that serve typical food from Pará. Le Birosque sells some fantastic pork dishes that will make you come back for more. And there is Il Basilico that serves Italian food. And of couse you have a hamburger and pizza place to choose from.
We could go on and on, but the best thing is if you go there yourself and experience it.
Quituart is only open on Friday night, and on Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 to 16:00. And its main customer base are the residence of Lago Norte. You could get the feeling that the residences do not want to promote Quituart to the “outsiders”, as not many people from other parts of Brasilia have been there.
One of the great advantages of Quituart is that you are not limited to one cuisine of a restaurant, but you have all the different options to choose from.
Anyway, check it out. You will not be disappointed.
