Ignoring the barbaric spelling: What are the best
places in the city for Brazillian barbeque?

    There are many very good places along and just off
    Ferry St in the Portuguese/Brazilian section of
    Newark, NJ. All of them are of good quality and quite
    reasonable. The one I go to is on the second floor on
    the north side of Ferry St but damn if I remember the
    name. It's a fun area to walk around. The people are
    friendly and I am sure, if asked, will point out what
    they believe to be the best around. Enjoy an espresso
    and while in the cafe ask one of the servers. Also,
    there is a more upscale one on Route 21 in Newark
    close to the Performing Arts Center just over the
    Harrison bridge--Seabras.

      The name of the place on Ferry St. is Brasilia.
      Something like 135 or 137 Ferry St. Very friendly and
      the skewered steak is the best thing on the menu
