porcupine Posted April 28, 2010 Share Posted April 28, 2010 Twenty two years ago someone turned me on to Brazilian food by sending me to Doña Flor, a restaurant in Tenleytown that suffered the common fate of going from excellent to mediocre to closed. Since then, I've had feijoada at The Grill From Ipanema, which started out as a mediocre restuarant, and Café Atlantico, which used to occasionally serve a deconstructed version that was pleasant if unexciting. Last time I had anything close to feijoada was at Greenfields, where I could go to the bar and get a plate full of rice, beans, orange segments, collards, and farofa, and then wait for pork on a skewer to show up. Is there any Brazilian (preferably Bahian) restaurant worth going to? Within, say, a 100 mile radius of DC? Or should I go to Fogo de Chao and play "build your own sauceless feijoada" again? Or does anyone know of a store that sells dende, farofa, and that wickedly good hot yellow pepper sauce, and a Brazilian cookbook? Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
