You find authentic food dishes as if you were in Portugal. Friendly and safe just off the train at Penn Station travel down Ferry Street. Or by car to get to some of the hidden treasures (restaurants) off Ferry St.

Spanish and Portuguese restaurants abound. Also rodizios and plenty of bars. Parking is hectic but it's a nice place to have a great meal that won't break the bank. Don Pepe is our favorite!
