The food and music of Brazil is the focus of this funky Alphabet City spot, although several other South American countries get their due. Walk past the tiny tables set up on the sidewalk and into a dining room painted a brilliant array of blues, yellows and greens, complemented by quirky lamps and bric-a-brac. The special prix fixe menu, which includes both an entrée and an appetizer, will save you couple bucks; choose from entrees like the moqueca (seafood cooked in coconut milk and served over rice) and the feijoada (a hearty stew made of different types of pork and black beans) and appetizers such as fried calamari and the house ceviche. Order a passion fruit or mango caipirinha, or choose one of the South American wines, which are all half-priced on Mondays. Most nights you'll also find live music ranging from tango and samba to Latin funk and Brazilian forro music.—Keith Wagstaff
