Happened to be walking down the SOHO in NYC on Black Friday and all restaurants were full around 3 PM. Finally went into Bar Bossa, a very small restaurant that was full. We were 5 in the group so I asked anyway about a place and they said go in the back. Sure enough there was just one long table... More

While bopping around Soho and seeking an early dinner, my wife and I discovered this warm little bar/bistro with an intriguing, Brazilian focused menu, tucked along a quiet street. We were greeted by friendly staff and enjoyed a great meal. My wife had the eggplant polenta parmegiana, a sort of hybrid lasagna-polenta dish that was freshly made and very satisfying,... More

Good location to have some drinks at the bar. Nice staff and great ambiance. We only had some drinks, so can't say anything about it.

This is our favorite spot in the city. Great food, great people. It looks tiny up front, but there is another big table in the back. We are there often when in town.

It's a tiny Brazilian place and the food is second to none. Very limited drink selection, but we don't care. Great staff, great atmosphere, great Rice Bolognese Lasagne. That's it - I'll be there tonight.

As Ireland was beaten by Italy in the European Cup, I decided to go with my wife to an Italian bar where they played the match on TV to cheer for Italy when they were playing England. I went to BarBossa (as I was on holidays in NYC). I ordered a couple of drinks and was ready for a good... More

A local recommended this tiny restaurant to us; we loved it. Lots of atmosphere, good intelligent service, delicious food (try the tuna tartare - yummy), good cocktails. The food is Brazilian.

It is best to go to BarBossa before 7p if you want to sit for dinner - the place is quite small and gets crowded fast. It has a relaxed atmo and friendly service. The food and drink menus are very interesting. We started with white sangria (had apples in it - $9/glass) and proceeded with Brazillian Caipirinhas ($6/glass on... More

We stumbled across Barbossa quite by accident and ended up having a phenomenal meal. 3 of us each ordered different appetizers and mains and everything was perfectly prepared. The atmosphere is fun and a little cafe/pub-ish with brazilian music and posters. Drinks were brilliant and the staff were friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back
