É UM RESTAURANTE

With the support of the Lisbon City Hall, the mentoring of Chef Nuno Bergonse and the creativity of The Hotel, we created a restaurant where the service is provided by people who experienced homelessness.

It is a casual fine dining restaurant, where we serve comfort food, with a cosmopolitan atmosphere and decor. But also, and above all, it is a project with a strong social impact, where 75 people living in vulnerable situations will be integrated each year, giving them the tools for their inclusion in the labor market.

In March 2020, É UM RESTAURANTE left its activity in stand-by and, as requested by Lisbon City Hall, started to cook and distribute meals to the homeless population of Lisbon, also maintaining the take-away service since November 2020. We intend to resume activity as a restaurant in the second half of 2021, depending on the epidemiological conditions.
