This Brazilian spot reliably draws South American expats and longtime locals with its crisp cassava fries, chewy pão de queijo, all-you-can-eat churrasco, and the richest, thickest feijoada imaginable. Caipirinhas are obligatory—get a little spicy with the ginger version, or sweeten it up with passion fruit.

Rattan furnishings, indigenous folk art, colorful wood paneling, and mosaic floor tiles give it a warm and authentic vibe, and the samba dancers who parade through while you’re having dinner give you a little taste of Rio de Janeiro during carnival.
