Sip caipirinhas and dig into Brazilian plates at this rustic family-owned restaurant. Daughter Mariana Bull (Pulino's, Pure Food and Wine) dispatches South American plates like fried tapioca sticks with a spicy soy dipping sauce and duck magret with a sweet-and-sour cupuacu fruit relish. The São Paolo–inspired space is outfitted with a copper-fronted bar, 300-year-old teak ceiling and hand-painted tiles.
