Description: In the heart of Little Brazil street is the famous Ipanema Restaurant, considered to be the best Brazilian restaurant in all of New York City. Ipanema offers a relaxed and contemporary atmosphere complemented by the authentic cuisine our chef has perfected over the past 30 years. While the name Ipanema refers to the famous beach in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil our menu is firmly rooted in the culinary crossover between both Brazil and Portugal. Ipanema's menu combines the timeless history of Portuguese recipes with the zest and vibrancy of Brazilian cuisine, resulting in a one-of-a-kind dining experience. At Ipanema you can immerse yourself in a true Brazilian-Portuguese experience with famous dishes including: Feijoada, Vatapá, Pão de Queijo, Bacalhau Assado, Bitoque Mariscada, and more.

Dinner time at Ipanema is like a feast; we had the camarao a coco and the feijoada completa (Brazil's National dish) based on online reviews and they were fantastic!

Word of advice though, the amount of food is more suitable for 3 or 4 people as we were both stuffed when only half our dishes were eaten.

The coconut dish was light and delicious, with bright and intense herbal flavours. The black beans, as expected for a National dish, were bold, and heavy. Large chunks of meat and sausage were cooked to perfection, with crispy pieces of pork rind added a welcome crunch. Deep flavours in this one and very filling.

Service was good, not great as we had to repeatedly ask for new drinks and water refills. But overall it was a very enjoyable dinner. :)

We were four for dinner and no reservation. The host told us we would have a twenty minute wait, and it was well worth it. The bartender recommended the passion cosmo, which made our wait much more pleasant. The only problem was that the table was too small for all the food that was served, although we only ordered one main dish each.

Food and service could not have been better, and drinks were incredibly good and unique. For mid-town Manhattan, this place is an incredible bargain.

So, not bad - but not great. Lunch at ABC Cocina was amazing. This simply does not compare. Reasonable food, well prepared - a good meal but utterly forgettable.
