    Tenderloin medallions wrapped in bacon with mushroom risotto and asparagus for $24...not bad at all and it's delicious! Best risotto I've tasted hands down.

    One of my favorites! If you love fish, try their Salmon. It's to die for, and always get the plantains over the french fries. Yummy!! Make sure you also ask for bread, they forget to bring it :)

    An extensive menu, with several traditional Brazilian dishes, mixed in with some fusion and traditional American ones. Good service and very good Caipirinhas!

    Hot off the bossa nova grill is the section to order from. Try the lightly battered chicken. Croquets are a must try. Open late and always good.

    The dishes are delicious, however the authentic taste was just the appetizer with coxinha and pão de queijo. Maybe not the right place to try real Brazilian food.
