Best Brazilian (2008)


The most hopping Little Brazil is no longer found in Astoria, but in Newark's Ironbound. TAPAJOS RIVER STEAKHOUSE is named after an Amazon tributary, and the menu combines the churrascaria menu we've come to love (pick the rump-cut beef called picanha) with such fare from coastal Bahia as muqueca, a shrimp stew thickened with coconut milk and flavored with orange dende oil.
