Samba Brasil Cafe & Grill dances to a June beat
When I stopped by the space yesterday, I spoke with co-owner Andrea Nazario, who told me that she and her business partner, Cris Barros, will initially serve breakfast, lunch and Sunday brunch -- a blowout Sunday brunch -- with more than fifty Brazilian dishes sharing space in the small dining room.
But this is not a rodizio -- and according to Nazario, it never will be -- so don't go expecting freakishly gluttonous heaps of meat on meat. Instead, Nazario and Barros will offer Brazilian snacks and sandwiches, grilled fish, seafood and chicken, feijoada (of course) and plenty of space to samba.
A liquor license (mojitos! Caipirinhas!) is forthcoming and expanded hours, including dinner, will follow.
In the meantime, you might want to brush up on your samba moves.
