Dec.30, 2010 update: A new party has been added to the beachfront bar at Café Riso Plage.
One of the newest spots in Jurere Internacional is having a party to welcome 2011. The New Year's Eve 2011 party at Café Riso Plage will be one of the best parties on the island, with fine food, an open bar and live music - a band playing Brazilian pop music, a jazz quartet and string trio.
Riso owner Luiz Grassia said that the party is geared towards "people who don't want to pass up a great party by the sea, but who no longer want the hoopla of the typical parties in this area."
Café Riso Plage, the beach outpost of Café Riso in central Floripa, maintains the tradition in fine cuisine established at the original location by award-winning chef Vitor Augusto Gomes.
The menu at the Réveillon party in Jurerê will feature fresh oysters, one of the island's treasures, beef and octopus carpaccio, Grana Padano cheese, crustacean bisque, codfish salad, lentil salad, pork ribs, desserts and other specialties.
The open bar will include 8 year old whisky, vodka, champagne, wine, beer, sparkling wine, energy drinks, soda and mineral water.
