The sounds and flavors of Brazil and Cuba unite at this recent Greenwich Village addition. Diners can perch on repurposed conga drums at the bar, and sip from an extensive menu of caipirinhas and mojitos—one version swaps orange and basil for the traditional lime and mint combination. Dig into binational dishes such as ropa vieja (braised beef with olives, onions and peppers). A small stage in the back hosts live musicians playing in styles such as forró and pagode.
