Porto Alegre Cafe is a gem. Cool room, great staff, and the food was superb. It's a wonderful take on Brazilian cooking -- clean, fresh, modern, not overwhelming in either spice or substance. If you're looking for "traditional" Brazilian food, meaning lots of grilled red...More

Another storefront restaurant right downtown just a 2 minute walk from the RR station. A very casual atmosphere inside and, depending on the weather, at the sidewalk tables. The menu has Brazilian and Brazilian inspired treats for your taste buds. Rice and beans are plentiful...More
