Anyone have the scoop on the Brazilian(!) place on Canal?
In the space formerly occupied by...an aging greasy spoon whose name escapes me at the moment. It's a couple of blocks lake side of Galvez, at any rate.
When I saw the Portuguese sign a couple of weeks ago, I made a mental footnote that I ought to case the place, but the seasonal festivities distracted me. On the way in to work today I noticed that there's now a large "Carnival Grocery" sign on the side of the building, while the "main" corner-entrance advertises churrascuria and other things I didn't catch as I rolled by. I know we're on track to get a Fogo do Tejas or some such, but this place is certainly not it. Until I know more I am not, *not* going to get excited, but even if all I get out to the place is an easily accessible replacement for the Union supermarket, I'll be happy. And if they make a good feijoada completa in addition to the other meaty offerings, well, then I'll be thrilled.
Well, it sounds very interesting, but I don't know anyhting about it.
I am semi-excited because a Fire of Brazil opened across from Acme in the Quarter...it is a chain (that will be okay I am sure)...but nothing compared to the possible authenticity of the place you speak of. I have been to Brazil a few times and must say they have some of the best food I have eaten anywhere in the world.
I believe Fogo was eyeing BR, but I could be wrong.
