Portugal has now 35 Michelin stars, with lisbon restaurants ‘100 Maneiras’ and ‘Eneko Lisboa’ awarded one star each.
100 Maneiras, by Ljubomir Stanisic
“100 Maneiras. Or Ljubomir Stanisic. Because 100 Maneiras can’t be dissociated from Ljubomir – nor the other way around. We know what was born first – the cook, in 1978 – but we also know that talking about 100 Maneiras is talking about the most-Portuguese-Yugoslavian-cook-ever.
The name of the brand aims to provoke, stimulate, to think. It refers to the absence of rules, but also to the infinity of forms. Because this group doesn’t want preconceived norms and prejudice is not allowed. There are no limits to creativity. No barriers. Borders aren’t limited. There is tradition and there is innovation, knowledge and imagination, seriousness and jokes. The only absence is monotony.
Ljubo inaugurated the first restaurant when he was 26 years old and had been living in Portugal for seven years. The 100 Maneiras of Cascais was open between 2004 and 2008 and gave the Yugoslav knowledge (recognition) and experience. If the chef says that he has learned more from his mistakes than from his victories, the bankruptcy in Cascais was one of the setbacks that served him well.”
A História (125€): First we travel to where Ljubomir Stanisic was born. Then we see how he grew up, where he traveled to, what caused an impression. There are 17 moments in this journey that is physical (and starts in Bosnia), but above all emotional. A Story that is rewritten every day, depending on the days of the chef-patron’s life – but also of his team, led by executive chef Manuel Maldonado
(Wine pairing: 115€)
O Conto (95€): Some say a tale never loses in the telling. And so this Short Story wins: emotion, flavor, surprise… The condensed version of “The Story”, tasted in 11 moments.
(Wine pairing: 90€)
Ecos do 100 (vegetarian) (110€): It is a love letter, a declaration of principles. A vegetarian and eco (logic) menu that echoes the concerns of the chef and 100 Maneiras. A hedonistic commitment to the Earth and the Species. A statement of principles. With many endings…!
(Wine pairing: 100€)
