The Brazilian food is so good, generously portioned and reasonably priced at Via Brasil that it’s lasted since 1978. It’s an attractive, old-fashioned space, sporting vibrant colors and a white piano for the occasional live Brazilian music. Start with a tangy caipirinha (Brazil’s national cocktail) and fabulous pão de queijo (cheese bread). There’s seafood but it’s mostly a meat place, one specialty being sliced beef in creamy mushroom-cognac sauce. Feijoada, a beef, pork and black bean extravaganza, is a celebratory signature dish.
