In Plaza Rio de Janeiro, new restaurants seem to pop up monthly. Yet, finding a place in the area for a cocktail and a light bite during a late afternoon lull has been weirdly difficult. Until now. The menu at Cafe Janeiro is focused on excellent snacks like deviled eggs, nopales salad, and tomato soup, but the main draw is the relaxed atmosphere. You can spend hours sipping a negroni (or two) here while taking in the action on the plaza. And if you like live jazz, Cafe Janeiro hosts shows on Thursdays and Sundays starting at 8:30pm.
