Anyone have the scoop on the Brazilian(!) place on Canal?

In the space formerly occupied aging greasy spoon whose name escapes me at the moment. It's a couple of blocks lake side of Galvez, at any rate.

When I saw the Portuguese sign a couple of weeks ago, I made a mental footnote that I ought to case the place, but the seasonal festivities distracted me. On the way in to work today I noticed that there's now a large "Carnival Grocery" sign on the side of the building, while the "main" corner-entrance advertises churrascuria and other things I didn't catch as I rolled by. I know we're on track to get a Fogo do Tejas or some such, but this place is certainly not it. Until I know more I am not, *not* going to get excited, but even if all I get out to the place is an easily accessible replacement for the Union supermarket, I'll be happy. And if they make a good feijoada completa in addition to the other meaty offerings, well, then I'll be thrilled.
