This was by far the best restaurant we ate in during our week-long trip. Meals were outstanding, lots of meat, so not so good if you're a vegetarian, though there were vegetarian offerings. Great service, too. The churrasco is the best and love the caipirinhas.

The bitoque was awesome! The angus steak was really nice and cooked perfectly. Served with lots of fries, rice, a fried egg and delicious black beans (which gave it a pretty nice and tasteful brazillian twist). Probably the best bitoque I ever had. Wash it...More

In the heart of Little Brazil street is the famous Ipanema Restaurant, considered to be the best Brazilian restaurant in all of New York City. Ipanema offers a relaxed and contemporary atmosphere complemented by the authentic cuisine our chef has perfected over the past 30 years. While the name Ipanema refers to the famous beach in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil our menu is firmly rooted in the culinary crossover between both Brazil and Portugal. Ipanema's menu combines the timeless history of Portuguese recipes with the zest and vibrancy of Brazilian cuisine, resulting in a one-of-a-kind dining experience. At Ipanema you can immerse yourself in a true Brazilian-Portuguese experience with famous dishes including: Feijoada, Vatapá, Pão de Queijo, Bacalhau Assado, Bitoque Mariscada, and more.
