Point Brazil

Show up to this Astoria Brazilian spot on a random day and there’s a 96.7% chance that you’ll leave feeling like the feijoada and linguica could’ve been saltier, or you should’ve opted for extra picanha instead of the beef rib. But come on the first Saturday of the month and you’ll leave feeling like you know exactly where you’ll be 30 days from now. You’ll be back at Point Brazil for their next “Taste of Bahia” monthly special, when the two sister-owners cook a bunch of dishes from their native Bahia in northeastern Brazil. That includes fantastic, filling acarajé - a deep-fried black-eyed pea fritter stuffed with shrimp, bacalao, and vatapá (a rich, creamy, seafood-y paste) - for $6, and a sampler plate with vatapá, moqueca, and okra gumbo.
