Brazilian-born chef Jorgina Pereira relies on ingredients such as cassava root, collards, and coconut to infuse stews and stir-fries with tropical flavors at Sinhá. Pereira prepares her homeland's cuisine at home, welcoming guests into her historic brick townhouse for intimate meals in the mid-afternoon and private events in the evenings. In addition to doling out tropical comestibles at its brick-and-mortar location, the staff takes a custom catering menu on the road with Brazilian musicians, dressing for events in a Carmen Miranda-like uniform of flowing dresses and fruit-filled head dresses. Sinhá is a local favorite, and was even featured on ABC 7 Chicago News in a restaurant segment.

title: Brazilian Bowl
html_text: There's a little piece of Brazil tucked in amongst the storefronts and shops in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood. Brazilian Bowl welcomes diners into its cozy space with traditional, homemade Brazilian food, made with Angus-certified beef and accented with sauces that earned their own segment on Chicago's Best. Feijoada—a black bean and meat stew, which is Brazil's national dish and featured prominently on the country's flag—provides a perfectly hearty introduction to the restaurant's warming cuisine. Between bites, guests can sip juice-bar creations and smoothies blended with fresh fruit. They can also browse a wide variety of Brazilian products in the restaurant's colorful grocery area.

If you got three chances to guess what they serve at mEAT, chances are, you'd only need one. More than 13 varieties of cage- and hormone-free meat and wild-caught seafood dishes are available in bite-size, skewered morsels, though there are also crab-rangoon flatbreads and vegetarian- and pescatarian-friendly entrees. Catering to people with a backyard barbecue sensibility as well as fine-dining enthusiasts and those who only eat things off sticks, main courses include bacon-wrapped chicken with jalapeños, beef tenderloin tips in a burgundy wine sauce, and wasabi-crusted salmon with dijon mustard. To wash it down, there's a wide array of whiskey cocktails, craft beers, and molecular chemistry–inspired Vaportinis.
