The Grill from Ipanema Restaurant Review

: The restaurant's pulsating, authentic Brazilian mood and food means that this lively place will undoubtedly make you feel as though you are at a party. Order the lightly breaded alligator or crab meat to start. For the entrée, we recommend the feijoada, the Brazilian national dish best suited to a frigid night. This rich and spicy stew is filled with chunks of beef, pork and sausage. Other choices are garlicky chicken, assorted seafood stews and hearty beef, sausage and pork dinners that will stir your heart to do the tango. If you enjoy heady beverages, you might want to order one of the Brazilian faves, like a cachaça made with a sugar cane-based liquor.
