Description

LA Weekly's Description

It may be a little strange to start a review by praising a restaurant's tap water, but Wood Spoon's really is the best in town: triple-filtered, no doubt, served sharply cool, and flavored with whole cinnamon sticks, which give the water a delicate fragrance and tint it the color of dilute oolong tea. You almost forget that the restaurant doesn't sell beer. Wood Spoon is a stylish, feminine Brazilian cafe in the Fashion District, a first stop for the FIDM crowd before they hit the bars, and a hangout for both downtown locals and the artier fringes of the expat Brazilian community, who nibble on heart-of-palm omelets and the soft chicken-bearing pastries called coxhina; salt-cod croquettes; and the crunchy Brazilian version of the meat-filled Lebanese dumplings called kibbeh. If you've been to Rio, you'll recognize Wood Spoon's heart as a chicly modest urban cafe built around smallish portions of grilled chicken, beef, fish or sausage and served with the inevitable black beans, rice, boiled greens and gritty manioc powder - a meal low-fat and balanced enough to eat before a night of dancing. Wood Spoon's specialties, oddly enough, are chicken potpie and pork burgers, both of which are very good, and there are homemade truffles for dessert.

Tips from foursquare

    Brazilian pot pie? Heck yes. Cold water served in a carafe with cinnamon sticks or some other concoction. Total win.

  • Ricky M. on 08/12/09

    waiter recommended pot pie, fish sammich, and pork sammich.

  • Vanity Fair Agenda on 01/30/12

    Known for its home-inspired Brazilian dishes prepared with local ingredients by chef-owner Natalia Pereira. When you need a comfort-food fix, the search ends here with The Best Chicken Pot Pie.

  • David G. on 09/30/10

    Wow. Love this place. Friendly, innovative. I had the Grilled Chicken Sandwich which is ten times more exciting than it sounds.

  • Lauren H. on 05/19/10

    The sangria and Brazilian chicken pot pie are so yummy!!!
