Berimbau is the best Brazilian restaurant in NYC. This narrow West Village spot separates itself in the details. They offer farofa with dende oil to match the flavors and consistency of the moqueca, while serving a bowl of bacon-studded farofa with the meat-heavy feijoada. That feijoada is packed with pork that has the pull-apart texture you’d expect from stewed meat, but with the bark and smoke rings you’d find after a slow-cook in a smoker. Before ordering a basket of stress ball-sized pão de queijo in the garden out back, stop at the curbside bar, and pick up a fantastic, not-too-sugary caipirinha.
