Amid a stretch of souvlaki joints, Arcos spreads a banquet inspired by Portugal’s bountiful Minho region. Churrasco (grilled meat) and marisco (seafood) play equal roles in the plain, burgundy-tinged dining room, though the latter generally trumps the former. Favorites include whole grilled bronzini and bulhabaise de marisco, a decadent seafood stew in a white wine and garlic broth. Simple, hearty ingredients feature prominently in meat dishes like the picadinho a Arcos, a chewy pork, chouriço and shrimp stew, while unabashed carnivores come for luscious charcoal-grilled suckling pig served on Fridays and Saturdays. Entrées are enormous, but don’t skip standout appetizers like tender shrimp in garlic, or plump, finely marinated clams.
