Best Brazilian Restaurants
in the U.S.
Chef and co-owner Natalia Pereira learned to cook from her mother, and a casual hominess pervades the menu selections at WoodSpoon. It's a minimalist space, clean and simple, with white walls, a high ceiling and just a couple of pieces of contemporary art as decoration, making if feel as much like a gallery as a restaurant. Start with coxinha, deep-fried balls of ground chicken with a spicy dipping sauce. And you can't beat the Brazilian grill, with your choice of beef, lamb, chicken, Brazilian sausage, fish of the day, and even vegetables for those who eschew meat.
