We discovered this Brazilian restaurant because it was near the hotel where we were staying on the Upper East Side. We ended up taking a friend and we all had different Brazilian dishes -- all of them good. Especially memorable was the feijoada, Brazil's national dish, a zesty stew of lots of different things. It would have been enough for two. Prices were about what you would expect in Manhattan, but I wouldn't say they were unreasonable. The dessert crepes were great to finish off a tasty meal of lots of food. My only regret is that we were staying just one night in the hotel, so there was no way to take the leftovers, which would have been enough for another meal or maybe two!

On our way OUT, we noticed there was a prix fixe menu which we were not offered. The Manager's explanation was that the prix-fixe is outside on a blackboard, on their takeout menu, on the website and in the bathroom. Don't ask, don't tell. Whatismore we happened to order appetizers and main courses that (we discovered) were on the prix-fixe. But we were charged full a la carte prices. Decor is nice. Food is so-so.

Came to this restaurant that was one block from our Courtyard Hotel on the Upper East Side, and was pleasantly surprised by the high quality food and relatively low price. When people think Brazilian food, they often think of Rodizio's (steakhouses), but this restaurant serves a wide variety of Brazilian dishes including many vegetarian plates. We got the fix prix meal for $25 that included a salad (or soup), entree and dessert. I got the Rigatoni Linguisa, my partner got the chicken on potato puree. Both were tasty, hot and delicious. We also tried a Brazilian crushed lime drink, that was potent enough, but too much lime for me. The waiter was attentive but not overbearing. I would gladly return. And yes, they do deliver, but the restaurant is a nice environment to eat - so why do so?
