Brazil Brazil prides itself on being one of the most traditional Brazilian restaurants in all of New York. They even host Brazilian music on Fridays and Saturdays from 7:30pm - 11:30pm.
A lot of people avoid Brazilian food because they simply don't know what it entails (if they did, they'd come running.) But that just means more food for you.
Characterized by African, European, and American influences, Brazilian food takes on a vibrant flavor all its own.
This warm, wood-filled restaurant will yank you out of the neon streets of the city and into a soft Brazilian sunrise. With roughly one chandelier per table, it won't be possible for you to feel left in the dark.
The menu hosts an array of Brazilian specialties, including mussels, Sopa de Feijão (black bean soup), and Picanha na Chapa (Brazil's traditional top sirloin steak).
While the restaurant has a strict no substitution policy, it does host a vegetarian menu, an array of fish and pastas (including fettuccini and ravioli), and a series of local salads. The Brazil Brazil salad is adorned with mangoes, strawberries, and oranges.
And for dessert, you can sample coconut flan beside a variety of flavored cappuccinos.
Want to be a real Brazilian? Try the Brigadeiros, which look like a chocolate truffle, but with the consistency of a tootsie roll.
In the summer, if you ask nicely, Brazil Brazil will even find room for you on their patio.
