For the last 25 years, chef Carlos Roberto Inácio has been serving Brazilian dishes common in the country’s Minas Gerais state at his Hell’s Kitchen restaurant. The menu features traditional appetizers like pão de queijo, cheese puffs with gooey, melty centers ($6), and empanadas stuffed with beef, chicken or cheese ($2.50 each). As for entrees, the feijoada—a black bean casserole with bacon, beef, pork ribs and Portuguese sausage—is the chef’s specialty ($22). Other mains include prawns in a creamy yucca sauce ($17.75), pork chops in a garlic-wine sauce ($18.95) and Brazilian-style risotto with chicken and fried plantains ($14.95). Order up a side of collard greens or okra if you’re craving veggies ($5 each), or save room for dessert. You might not be able to resist the creamy coconut pudding, caramel flan, passionfruit mousse or chocolate truffles known as brigadeiros ($7 each).
