Striving to offer both Brazilian and Cuban standbys, this spot's main courses include arroz con pollo, Cuban lechon, Ipanema-style chicken and Bahia-style shrimp. The Cubano sandwich is expensive, but generously portioned and tasty--funky-edged lechon with ham, Swiss cheese, great pickles and sharp mustard. Bolinho de bacalhau, Brazilian salt cod fritters, are crisp and greaseless, full of good-quality shredded salt cod. The sopa de mariscos is a bit boring--mild, clear broth bobbing with salmon, shrimp and some very tender squid, along with snow peas and cubed sweet potato. It's greatly improved by a liberal lashing of hot sauce. There's live music on the weekends.
