Via Brasil: a disappointment

curioussheridan | Dec 19, 201408:12 PM

Went to Via Brasil based on Chow recommendations, and Serious Eats. Yes, the vibe is good, the live music is not too loud, the drinks are strong, service is accomodating; but what about the food?? Moquecas with white fish, one of their specialties was overcooked fish with watery sauce, accompanied by black beans that badly needed some seasoning; the shrimp in Shrimp with a Cheese Sauce tasted as if it had been cooked, chilled and cooked again. Looking at other people's plates, it looks as if this place is stuck in the past.
