Born and raised in Portugal, Rui Borges has fond memories of the elaborate, festive meals with his family that took place around their kitchen table on the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores-Portugal. From a young age, Rui knew that food was his first love and his passion. He eventually moved to the mainland of Portugal where he lived for several years. Traveling the Country from North to South, Rui was able to experience all the types of cuisine that vary by region. Rui learned two fundamental principles in his culture; utilizing the best ingredients and simple preparation. In August 2016 Rui Borges opened Lisbon Restaurant in the heart of International Drive at the Orlando Eye. Named after the Capital of Portugal, the restaurant’s menu is inspired by Borges’ Portuguese heritage. Chef Rui has created a well-balanced menu that is both rustic and refined. Lisbon’s menu includes various preparations of Bacalhau (salted-cod), unforgettable seafood dishes, fresh fish and traditional Portuguese meat specialties.
