Miss Favela is Brazilian restaurant below the Williamsburg Bridge, and it feels like a beach party in Rio. It’s painted in bright colors, it isn’t the least bit fancy, and sometimes there’s live music. When there is, feel free to get up and dance. That’s what happens here. The food itself is simple Brazilian stuff like chicken croquettes, steak with french fries, and giant platters of grilled meat. It probably won’t blow your mind, but it’ll get the job done. And the real reason you come here is to drink a few pitchers of caipirinhas and dance on your chair anyways.
