A Sao Paulo native prepares a menu that includes appetizers such as coxinha, fried dough with a creamy filling of chicken and Brazilian catupiry cheese. Cooks also prepare entrees of feijoada palmeira, a stew of black beans, meat, and ground black pepper accompanied by fried bananas and hot sauce.
Palmeira Brasil Restaurant
Owner and Sao Paulo native Felipe Franco embraces the culinary traditions of his home country, telling the New Haven Independent in 2012 that "my interest is to show Americans Brazilian food and culture." His menu brims with the country's signature cuisine, including Brazil's peppery national stew of black beans and meat, as well as moqueca—a seafood stew of fish, shrimp, mussels, calamari, or kraken-gone-astray that simmers inside a handmade clay pot. To accompany these entrees, the bartenders deftly mix potent yet refreshing caipirinhas using cachaça, or sugar-cane rum, Brazil's favored spirit.
