THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Boteco Restaurant Review

About the restaurant and décor: Wine is taken seriously at Boteco, in regard to the menu and the décor. This theme is accentuated by two wine bottle chandelier lights, each featuring 40 wine bottles, along with cutouts of the tops of wine barrels. The room is awash in warm dark wood tones and the seating is a mix of wood tables and chairs and comfortable banquettes.

Likes: Sunday Brunch offers more than 16 unique dishes such as Hennessy shrimp and grits, duck sausage and sweet potato hash and mussels and clams marinières.
Dislikes: The beer list is so small it only notes two beers: Czechvar (from the Czech Republic) and Estrella Damm (from Spain), but these two standout lagers go for the ridiculously low price of $2 and $3 respectively for a 10 oz. pour (the standard serving size in Brazil).

Food & Drinks: The fare is a blend of international cuisines, with options from various countries served via shareable plates. The menu changes often, but may include botequito sliders made with house-ground beef and bacon, caramelized onion, bacon jam and aged mozzarella topped off with quail egg; Moroccan zaalouk comprised of dates, ras el hanout spice, eggplant, tomato and garlic; escargot Bordelaise with red wine butter sauce; Norwegian laks med pepperrotkrem --- wild salmon with cream cheese, olive oil, lemon juice and chives; or pampas steak churrasco with chimichurri sauce. The wine list has quality globally sourced selections all priced under $50 a bottle and all served by the glass, such as the 2015 Fattoria di Rodano Chianti Classico from Italy, 2012 Montaña Rioja Crianza Tempranillo from Spain and 2014 Edge Cabernet from Napa. Final touches include caramel budino, caramel toffee-vanilla custard with crunchy fleur de sel.
