Portuguese in Outerboroughs or Newark?
I am looking for very authentic Portuguese food, and I am willing to field trip (from Manhattan) for it. Can anyone recommend a good place? It needn't be fancy, but I'm not a particular cheapskate if the quality merits it.

Second the motion on both Newark and Mineola. Portuguese can be quite regional, like the meaty stuff at Churrasquaria Bairrada (Jericho Turnpike and Willis Avenue), with roast kid in red wine sauce or frango (marinated butterflied charcoal-grilled chicken), for examples. Nothing fancy about this place, but the Saturday special leitao (roast suckling pig) at "PIC-NIC" on Ferry Street, one block after it splits left from the church (also Bairrada regional).
The seafood places tend to be more mixed Iberian-peninsular.
