Escape the frigid temperatures and icy conditions in Manhattan for a taste of a warmer locale: Brazilian food from Zebu Grill on the Upper East Side. Pair Brazil’s national cocktail, the citrusy caipirinha, with a typical bar snack of crispy hand pies called pastel filled with beef, chicken or cheese ($8.95 for three). For a heartier meal, dig into feijoada, a black bean stew with beef, pork and sausages served over rice ($25.95) or go all out with churrasco for two ($49.95). The sizzling platter filled with steak, chicken and sausage arrives with rice and beans. If you need more food, try a side of yucca fries ($6) or collard greens ($6). Looking for something sweet to finish the meal? You might be tempted by the passion fruit brulee topped with caramelized bananas ($8.95).
