Good Cheap Brazilian for Lunch

travelames Jan 29, 2009 06:39 AM

It's been a while since I've been to 46th Street for lunch, and noticed the prices are much higher now. Does anyone have any suggestions for a good inexpensive Brazilian lunch... to up $15 max (ideally less). Anywhere from the 50s south would be great. Thanks!

    My group has a lunch secret at Ipanema. Sit at the bar, and the same steak lunch that costs ~$20 will cost you $10. Ask for the bar menu.

      I agree with Xigua. Ipanema at the bar for lunch is a great deal and the portions are goodsized. Get the Fejardo, the Steaks or the Baccala. Baccala on Friday is great and the Baccala on Monday is a different version, baked with potato and onion.
