Meet Jorginho from “Faz Frio”,
The Lisboeta that brought a 150 year old restaurant back to life.
Jorge, also known as “Jorginho” is the face you have to look at once you enter the door of “ Faz Frio”, one of the oldest and more iconic restaurants in Lisbon.
The restaurant has more than 150 years of stories and traditions and it was the home of wonderful long night talks and gossiping. Unfortunately the restaurant went through a rough patch in the last few years, when the building was sold. Like usual gossips rolled in and there were people saying the new buyers were going to shut it down.
Luckily for us, and for everyone who visits them, that was not the case. Jorginho took over the project and started rebuilding what was once one of the best “bacalhau” houses in the country.
Jorge is, - just like us, - a total beach bum. When he’s not in the restaurant he is either at the beach or traveling the world. He studied hotel management in one of the best schools in the world, and after that he lived around the world gathering knowledge and crazy experiences, - You should hear him talking about them.
Although he’s a world citizen, Jorge never forgot he’s roots and he came back to Portugal to do what he knows best. He attacked this project like no other, and business is thriving. The food is really good, the space even better, and you couldn’t ask for a more Portuguese environment than this.
This is Jorge, get to know him.
