In 2006, Restaurants Magazine appointed D.O.M. as the 50th best restaurant in the world (the only Latin American restaurant in the list).
Also, according to Veja magazine, this is the best Nouvelle Cuisine restaurant in São Paulo (see full list of best restaurants here).
D.O.M. is an acronym for the Latin expression "Deo Optimo Maximo", which means "God is Optimum and Maximum" (optimum in wisdom and maximum in forgiveness); later on, the expression was applied by the Church to the Benedicts, who were famous for preparing food using only the very best ingredients available. Chef Alex Atala adapted the expression to Domus Optimus Maximus (domus = home), signifying that at his restaurant, the optimum and maximus in gastronomy are offered.
Does he deliver? The prizes he won speak by themselves.
