My friends wanted to take me out for a birthday dinner and I knew just the right place, Brasitas! I love going to Brasitas in Norwalk. It's a bit more high end than the one in Stamford and more cozy. Ther service is on point, the place is very clean, the music is just at the right volume (no yelling)... More

Plantain chips are amazing but don't fill up on those. Many great entrees to choose from and can't go wrong with bistec a caballo or carne Asada. Went with my niece and we had flatbread with shrimp as an appetizer. Still thinking about it and she is already trying to figure out when we can go back and have it... More

So happy we checked trip advisor on this. We were passing through on rt 15. Had an early lunch- excellent service, great food. Loved the plantain chips and salsa. Arroz con pollo was outstanding- i can't believe I ate every last bite. Followed with flan and cafe late- perfect. Highly recommended!

This place is buried in a small strip shopping center, About a quarter mile north of the Merritt Parkway. The name is a bit confusing. Is it Brazilian food? The outside looks tropical. And on nicer days, you can actually sit outside. But on this particular Saturday night it was a bit chilly. We had called at 615 for a... More

This place is the most underrated gem I have ever encountered. The food is AMAZINNGGGG!!!! and the drinks are freshly made.. I make it a habit to pop by as often as possible. With the little space that they have, even outside, it is still top notch. Perfect for happy hour, date night, family, business, friends.. I have been by... More

In town for one night, stopped in and sat at the bar. Friendly atttentive service and the best carne asada I have ever had! They serve fresh banana chips and salsa - a great alternative to tortilla chips. Great atmosphere.

Service is good. Menu selection is delicious and unique. For example there's a Caribbean version of Jambalaya that's nicely done.

Located in a lively little strip mall near the awesome fitness-themed Even Hotel, this is a spicy and savory alternative when you are tired of the healthier choices at the hotel. Not that it is unhealthy by any means, just not pure organic faire. The steak is flavorful and cooked to specification. Other meats are fine. The vegetables are really... More

Ate here during a business trip with 8 people. Service was very good and we didn't have to wait long for anything. I had the sweetcorn, cheese and chicken starter (sorry can't remember what it was called) It was good but nothing special. It was quite dry and the chicken almost tasted like tuna. However, the steak I had for... More
