Varanda’s menu deposits delicious Brazilian cuisine in hungry stomachs, ensuring they're happily filled with ingredients from South America. Guests such as Lady Gaga and Ricky Martin have dined at Varanda’s, and the eatery can also satisfy inner celebrities with starters such as asinha de frango (chicken wings, $7.95) or pastel de queijo, a popular cheese-filled pastry ($1.95). Meat eaters can enjoy the muqueca de peixe—a fish fillet simmered in coconut sauce and spices and served with beans and rice ($13.95)—plunge their teeth into a picanha steak ($13.95), or sample linguica, a Brazilian-style sausage served with beans, rice, and a side ($12.95).
Before joining forces to create My Ceviche, Roger Duarte and Sam Gorenstein shared something else in common: appearances on Forbes magazine's "30 Under 30." Roger received praise for creating George Stone Crab, which delivered crab never more than 24 hours off the boat; Sam was recognized for his culinary prowess at The Raleigh Hotel. Together, they combine Roger's passion for seafood and Sam's kitchen know-how to supply fish, octopus, and shrimp ceviche flavored with everything from citrus juices and avocado to radishes and a touch of ketchup. All local and seasonal, the line-caught namesakes often wind up in My Ceviche's bowls of coconut jasmine rice, cilantro quinoa, or mixed lettuces topped with house-made sauces. Guests can also enjoy their ceviche inside tacos and burritos or on its own with a side of kettle-popped corn coated in a secret chili-lime spice, a preparation as breezily casual as a pair of Hawaiian-print cargo shorts.
The grills never shut off at Gusto Express. Open 24 hours a day, chefs serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, for patrons anytime they want it.

And, the restaurant also serves a full drink menu ranging from domestic beers to full bottles of champagne for those looking for a quick nightcap or a place to grab a bite and christen a boat at the same time.
