I have seen a few back and forths on this place awhile ago. I was able to go last night, and join those who think this might be the best Brazilian in the area. The food was exceptional; tasty, clean, fresh. We had the Corvina Com Vatapa and Feijoada. Both dishes were a bit different from what you would get in Brazil, with a bit more garlic, but honestly the difference made them better. With a 26 rating in Zagats its got a lot to live up to; i think the food is there. Only disapointment was no
Pao de queijo, the cheese bread that is ubiquitous to Sao Paulo. For that there is a Pizza place a few blocks away. Oh, and no mixed drinks.
They have a website malagueta.com
