Not sophisticated. Small and very simpático. We had picadinho. A little strange to have rice and beans and mashed potatoes in the same dish. I would suggest farofa, instead. The desserts lacked a bit of taste, but were ok. I would go back.

As soon as my husband & I walked in the door, I was already excited to come back for a 2nd time! I love that it is away from the usual NYC hustle and bustle, but still close to subway stations. The dining room is small and intimate. The atmosphere is lovely: soft music, candles & flowers on the table.... More

I have been to this restaurant 3x and I always wanted to keep coming back. The place is cute, small, cozy and has an authentic Brasilian feel. The staff are really friendly and accomodating. The food is everything. Try their local enroladinhos, Fejoada and carne cozida and you will be like yes yes I want more! Dont forget to ask... More

I just went to Zebu Grill and really liked it. The food is very good. We had the crabmeat Enroladinhos and they were good. The other appetizer was the best, a potato croquette stuffed with chicken served with requeijão which we both loved. The entrees we had were Picadinho and Muqueca De Camarão. We loved both our entrees. They have... More

This is a little gem of a restaurant. It is small and intimate, quiet, with great food and service. Warning: if you are looking for the endless meat parade, this is not the place. This is the place for real Brazilian cuisine. I recommend the empanadas for an appetizer, and for an entree, the Charrasco for two. A delicious platter... More

Perfect place to get a meal if you are a seeker of real Brazilian taste! Stews are amazing if you want to venture a departure from churrasco. Lovely atmosphere and great, genuinely friendly service.

This neighborhood gem is truly amazing. The food is great, the staff is absolutely wonderful. One of my favorite nibble there is the yuca fries - not soggy like most places - light and crispy - done perfect and is hands down THE BEST I've ever had. The cheese bread; cheese bread with pulled beef sliders; chicken croquettes, and the... More

We discovered this hidden gem thanks to Groupon. The "deal" wasn't a huge savings compared to going in w/out a coupon, but we're glad to have discovered this place. The artichoke heart app was really good, 5/5 stars. I had the hot & sweet sausage entree which was good, but not as large of a serving as I would have... More

Would be much busier if it was on an avenue. The menu is limited but what they make is excellent. I wish they would update the menu since it has been the same for years. The place is always clean, the food is always served hot and delicious. Spartan interior with warm wood tables and chairs. They make good drinks... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
