Turns out the owner of Ipanema was also the owner of the Brazilian Pavilion on 53rd street…our favorite Brazilian restaurant back in the 1980’s. The excellence continues. Great caipirinha’s, steaks, rice and black beans. Service was friendly. What’s not to like!

Dropped in for dinner and did not have to wait. The staff was friendly and the food was great. I've never had Brazilian food before and we were in for a treat. The beef was tender and flavorful.

In the heart of Little Brazil street is the famous Ipanema Restaurant, considered to be the best Brazilian restaurant in all of New York City. Ipanema offers a relaxed and contemporary atmosphere complemented by the authentic cuisine our chef has perfected over the past 30 years. While the name Ipanema refers to the famous beach in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil our menu is firmly rooted in the culinary crossover between both Brazil and Portugal. Ipanema's menu combines the timeless history of Portuguese recipes with the zest and vibrancy of Brazilian cuisine, resulting in a one-of-a-kind dining experience. At Ipanema you can immerse yourself in a true Brazilian-Portuguese experience with famous dishes including: Feijoada, Vatapá, Pão de Queijo, Bacalhau Assado, Bitoque Mariscada, and more.
