THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Lisbon Manor Restaurant Review

: Cesar Janeira was born in Portugal but reared in the Portuguese community of Newark, New Jersey, where Portuguese restaurants flourish. With other members of his family, he has brought a taste of Portuguese cooking to Atlanta. Sunday brunch is a good time to taste a range of dishes. Start with a glass of chilled white Port splashed with tonic water and a slice of lime. Hope that the pink, juicy roast leg of lamb has been included in the day’s offerings. Picadinho, a dish of sautéed pork tenderloin with sausage, shrimp and Portuguese fried potatoes, offers a lot of flavor. So does the bacalhau a gomes de sa, based on traditional salted codfish with eggs and green peppers. We’ll be back for dinner, probably to get the picanha na tabura, a top sirloin for two for just $20. Dessert’s most authentic offering is the natas do ceu, for which cream and condensed milk are whipped to a fluffy consistency and flavored with coffee and crushed cookie crumbs. We hope for a future more focused on Portuguese dishes, such as açorda (seafood, tomatoes and garlic on moistened bread crumbs) and grilled sardines this summer.
