In a city where Brazilian cuisine is often equated with meat-heavy rodízio, Berimbau is a pioneer: a neighborhood spot with a small, focused menu of traditional Brazilian dishes presented in a contemporary setting. Named after a musical bow that’s used in capoeira, the restaurant specializes in dishes from Minas Gerais, a region known for its stellar cuisine and the home of chef Carlos Inacio. Menu items include a generous portion of roasted pork ribs in a homemade barbeque sauce, and moqueca a baiana, a seafood stew that comes studded with shrimp, squid, and chunks of fish. Don’t leave without trying the fried yucca paired with an addictive cilantro dipping sauce or the pão de queijo, two-bite rolls made of cassava flour and stuffed with cheese. There’s a full bar, but most go straight for the caipirinhas, which come in passion fruit, strawberry, coconut, or mango versions in addition to the standard lime.

Happy Hour

Show up before 6 p.m. and the potent caipirinhas are just $6.
