My wife and I used to eat there when it first opened, over 10 years ago. In fact, we ate there so often that even though we liked it, we got tired of it and stopped going. Then last week she said, "How about Rice 'n' Beans?" Sure, I said. If anything, it's even better now. I had the feijoada,... More

The food at this sweet and charming restaurant is the best brazilian food I've had in nyc and even Rio. I'm portuguese and have been to brazil twice so far and I have to say this place is like having grandma in the kitchen. From the caipirinhas to the calde verde soup and of course the tasty fejoiada - I... More

We came across this restaurant on halloween night. Its a small place on 9th ave. The food, drinks and service were wonderful. My husband had empanada's and the pork chops with rice and beans.. He couldn't stop raving about how great they were. We saw the people next to us eating something unusual. It turned out to be their seasonal... More

We happened upon this small Brazilian restaurant when we were hungry and decided to give it a try especially after we saw a TripAdvisor decal on the door. It was small but tastefully decorated which indicated attention to detail. The water was just attentive to detail in serving us and made helpful suggestions for a diabetic member of our party....

What a surprising find in Hell's Kitchen! Authentic in all aspects! Brazilian owned, tasty feijoada and refreshing caipirinhas. Tucked away behind a Brazilian flag, it's worth visiting for something different.

Delicious delicious delicious! Tucked away in mid-town Manhattan is this nice little Brazilian place. We went there for brunch on Sunday and it was great! Eggs Florentine and the Bacalau omelet with empanadas for starters, black beans for a side and fresh guava juice. Service was great! Place smelled wonderful with all of the dishes cooking and you have a... More

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
