When the New York Times reviewed Fado in late 2013, critic Joanne Starkey gave it an "Excellent" rating and perhaps the highest compliment possible. "A charming restaurant with the best Portuguese food I've ever had," she wrote, "including during recent meals in Portugal." The food here is certainly authentic, with traditional dishes and family recipes comprising most of the extensive lunch and dinner menus. And being a family run establishment gives the restaurant an an intimate feel that makes all who enter feel warm and welcome.
Chouriço—a handmade and aged smoked sausage—is a must-try appetizer, not only because of its succulent taste, but also because it's flamed in the dining room by the server. Roasted chicken with piri-piri sauce, meanwhile, headlines the entrées alongside slow roasted cornish hen and shredded salt cod tossed with finely sliced potato slivers. A Portuguese-inspired bar also serves drinks, including 30 ports and nearly 100 Portuguese wines.
