Any Excellent Feijoada in NYC?

  • 8

Can anyone recommend an excellent feijoada in NYC? I've lived and traveled extensively in Brazil and would rather eat something else than eat a mediocre one.

I was hoping for the Brazilian-style Saturday buffet setup with the pots of different cuts of meat, torresmo, couve, etc. but something good served at the table would work too.

Thanks!

  1. I haven't been there (yet), but Favela Grill in Astoria gets pretty high ratings.

      Note that favela grill does not serve Feijoada, at least not on its regular menu.

        It's not excellent - not even that good. I tried Malagueta recently for the first time in many years and was very disappointed.

      2. I had feijoada at Ipanema, 13 W 46th S, three weeks ago. I thought it was delicious. Everything my neighboring tables ordered looked pretty good too.

        1. Cabana Carioca at 123 W 45th used to have really good feijoada, but they are now sadly closed. Went there for 20 years, originally with my brother-in-law from Porto Allegre. I've been to Ipanema, they are not bad, but not as good.

          Beco bar in Greenpoint is supposed to be good (http://becobar.com). I've been meaning to try them but haven't had time, they got a critics pick in ny magazine. Beco says they take two days to make their feijoada. Let me know how you like them if you get there first.

          1. I don't really think you can get a great feijoada in the US. They can't get all different kinds of meat here, so it will never be as good as in Brazil. I really never order here in the US; but a friend of mine likes the one they serve at Emporium Brasil at 46th St.
