Cape Verdean/Portuguese Food

Wanted to make a tentative recommendation for a place with good CV/Portuguese food. Why a tentative recommendation? Well, you know how folks go ape-$hit for "authentic" ethnic cuisine but by the time those places typically make it to boards like these to get recommended, one actually goes to eat there and those places are no longer patronized by folks for whom this is native cuisine? (I am thinking El Rancho Grande and Los Andes). And then there is another level of "authentic" where the ambience is nil and most likely nobody not from that ethnicity/country has ever stepped foot in the joint?

Sorry for the circuitous intro, but I did want to mention Churrasqueria on Broadway in Pawtucket though it falls in the latter category. The waitresses speak little English, the bar is full of drunk Cape Verdean men, and the decorations are lacking.....but our meal there was delicious!

I do recommend visiting for the food, though the place might be a little intimidating!
