I went with a fellow Chowhoundess ;-) and our husbands to Cesaria in Dorchester last weekend, and it was great. Cesaria is a Cape Verdean/Portugese/African restaurant with fun decor, open feel, booths and tables, and live music! Really great neighborhood feel, lots of families there. It's located on Bowdoin Street in Dorchester.

For starters we shared two plates of grilled octopus which was delicious with a nice crunchy distinctly summery-grilled taste topped with a tart salsa. We also shared a plate of fried yucca, which was pretty much just fried yucca. For the main course I ordered the feijoda which was very tasty with beans, yucca, chorizo, and goat meat. This was served with a big side of rice. I had enough to bring some home and make a feijoda burrito the next day. Yum! Three appetizers, four entrees, and four beers came to around $25 per person.

Since this place is just two blocks from my house, I plan to hang out here as often as I can. I reported a couple of weeks ago that the owner and chef of Cesaria consulted on the opening of a brand new place in Upham's Corner, called Ka Carlos. Haven't been there yet, but it looks promising.
