SF Weekly's Description

The sultry, tropical flavors of Brazil are ably prepared and served at this stylish little SOMA hideaway. Small plates include warm, gooey cheese bread and smoky skewers of juicy ribeye with a trio of salsas. The caipirinhas need work, but the coconut flan is luscious. There's live bossa nova on Sunday and Tuesday nights.
