Estação República (Rua do Catete 104, Catete, tel. 21/2225-2650, 11 a.m.–midnight Mon.–Sat., 11 a.m.–11 p.m. Sun.) is a cheery and spacious per kilo restaurant with an enormous range of offerings. To boot, its extended hours are quite rare for a self-service place. Carnivores will appreciate the churrascaria featuring juicy barbecued meats, while more diet-conscious souls can take refuge in salads and sushi.
