Rice 'n' Beans

Hell has frozen over, pigs are flying, and we’re telling you not to order pão de queijo. While we’re at it, you should also skip the calabresa and stroganoff at this seven-table spot in Hell’s Kitchen. You’ll find better examples of those dishes at most of the places on this guide, but what you won’t find is feijoada like the version here. The five types of meat - bacon, sausage, pork ribs, pork shoulder, and carne seca - give off so much flavor that even just the stew-soaked rice seems engineered to provide a full churrasco experience in every bite.
