Brazilian Food in NYC at Casa

If you’re looking for traditional Brazilian food, Casa is your place. This corner restaurant is tiny but bright and airy, with floor-to-ceiling window panes opening it up to the classic brick buildings of Bedford Street. Clusters of red chili peppers hang down from the ceiling and colorful Brazilian artwork pops from the clean white walls. The home-cooked food is fresh and hearty, like the flavorful feijoada, a meaty black bean stew served in earthy ceramic bowls with servings of white rice to pour it over. Be sure to order side dishes to share, like crispy banana, collard greens, fried yucca sticks, and farofa, a toasted yucca flour with bacon. Tropical flavors like coconut, banana, and passion fruit sprinkle the menu in beverages, side dishes, and desserts. Don’t miss the refreshing caipirinha, the national drink of Brazil, made from cachaça (sugarcane liquor), sugar, and lime to complete your experience. 72 Bedford St., 212-366-9410
