Profile

If you've only experienced rodizio, that nonstop Brazilian barrage of grilled skewered meats, you'll be happily surprised by the refined elegance of this congenial restaurant's coconut-milk-and-palm-oil shrimp stew (moqueca de camarão); the tart, creamy passion-fruit mousse; and, on Saturdays, the feijoada, the national Brazilian clay-pot black-bean stew packed with pork, sausage, and fatty bacon and served with white rice, garlicky collard greens, farofa (crunchy fried cassava meal), and—in a seeming effort to cover all the major food groups—a few orange slices.

Recommended Dishes

Cocunut-milk-and-palm-oil shrimp stew, $16; acaraje, $8; quail with mashed potatoes, $17
