Here is gem of a spot especially on Fri night and Sunday brunch when you can hear homegrown soul and pop for no cover. You might want to join in too! Nice decor and layout and parking isn't too difficult but not easy either. Its worth it! Talk to them about the KFC lot after hours for parking
The restaurant is Cape Verdean which has a good emphasis on seafood. My favorite dish is pork shoulder with clams...(!?) yes its true!. BUT< and this is a big BUT --- they often substitute port medallions for the shoulder. Ask! and skip it if its medallions..so- so. The salmon with a killer sauce is great, as well as the cornish hen with clams.
Warning - they are heavy handed on the salt, which is a shame as its NOT NEEDED-- are you reading restaurant owners? Cut down on the salt....the food is great as it is.
BTW< get the chorizo appetizer. Its just a plain whole sausage but, it is by far, the best chorizo I have ever eaten anywhere....incredible. Perfectly made and prepared. I hope they don't change suppliers by the time you get there but if not you're in for a 9 dollar splurge treat. Hot but not too hot , tons of flavor, and has that homemade rough , not ground to a pulp type of fill. Super.
A reason for 4 not 5 is the service is spotty and uneven, somewhat unprofessional but well , folksy (?). also, we might have been upsold on the wine...seems the 25 dollar bottles are never there and we ended up with a 40. bottle. hmmm. When understaffed anything goes.
If you're from out of town, do yourself a favor, get away from the tourist trap areas, and see this place esp if there is live music. You won't forget it!
