~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wanted to create a restaurant that tasted & felt like Brasil; colorful, happy & loud in many ways.   So, I hung colorful Brasilian folk art over the bright yellow & green walls which represent the colors of our flags, turned up the music & packed the menu with the foods that would remind me of my home country & give everyone the same experience; exquisite oils, fragrant & exotic peppers, rich black beans.  Crafting dishes such as Feijoada, Caldeirada de Pirarucu, Picanha, Baiao De Dois, Bo-Bo De Frutas, and many others…  And that’s how it’s been ever since we opened.  Not that we haven’t changed.  We change all the time, adding new authentic flavors to our menus, developing new relationships with our vendors who provide us with everything in order to bring an experience to your table.  But at the end of the day, no matter how inventive our techniques or our ingredients are, my message is intricate & pungent:  leave the comfort zone & propose a new gastronomic experience, delivering the most authentic flavors of Brazilian Cuisine.

I travel to Brazil once a year to visit & work under different chefs in many regions within Brazil, to learn & update my culinary skills.  I am very involved in the daily activities of the restaurant, making sure that all operations meet my high standards.  I am Brasilian by birth & American by heart.
