I was looking for a quick lunch after arriving in NYC for a business trip. Stumbled upon this gem. Food was terrific. Staff were even better. A bit small, but well worth it if you can snag a table.

First time having Brazilian food - loved it! Good portions - delicious! Must comment on the efficiency with which the restaurant is run - seamless. One guy hosted, bussed, cashed - with effortless ease. He was as impressive as the food. Great prices too.
