Three of us went to BarBossa this past Sunday for brunch. It was our first time there and it was such a treat! The bar/restaurant is small and casual and the food was phenomenal. The french toast with mango/strawberry salsa was the BEST french toast I have ever had. I also sampled the poached eggs in a red tomato sauce and the granola with yogurt and fruit. My roommate ordered the goat cheese fritatta and said it was delicious. Sunday brunch can turn into an hour wait with overpriced entrees but there was no wait at 1pm and the food was almost underpriced. $6 for french toast, $6 for granola, $7 for fritatta...and right around the corner from Public, Peasant, Jacques, Cafe Gitane, etc. A cozy atmosphere and amazing food - I would highly recommend.

i had a fabulous experience at this intimate and friendly little place; the prices are great and the food definitely exceeds expectations. the pressed sandwiches are great. perfect for drinks, for a snack, for a weeknight dinner with friends.

We celebrated my cousin's 24th birthday at this cozy little restaurant last night and everyone enjoyed the meal -- from appetizers (recommend the spicy lemon shrimp) to the last bite of our guinness dark chocolate cake!

This is my second time there, and it was just as enjoyable as the first. I had the crumb steak with stuffed procuitto and fontina, excellent. my cousin had the wild stripe bass in banana leaf, EXCELLENT! everything on the menu sounded different and exciting, not your everyday type of dishes. the wine selection was limited but the sauvignon was nice. the carafe of sangria was very fruity but not too sweet, highly recommended.

the only drawback is the temperature. it is always a bit on the warm side in there. but with fall/winter approaching it shouldnt be an issue...

In an area that is becoming more hi strung by the week, it is totally great to have a place where tasty and unpretentious food can be found. With zero-attitude service, relaxed decor, and friendly attitude, this sliver of a restaurant is "find" by anyone's measure. Time will tell if it becomes a local fave. I was seated in the picnic table in the back...quieter, but no less attended than the front/bar area. The staff was knowledgable about the affordable wine list and my waitress described the daily specials in a way that had me drooling. I had a special, which believe was sopresata, covered with cheese,red onions and spices all fried in a tiny hotpan...delish. My dorade plate was very well prepared, but I'm a carb-freak and found myself drooling at my dining mates' lasagna-based dish, and the risotto variants.
I'll definitely be returning.

Not only is the decor inviting and the staff knowledgeable of the menu/nice to look at, but the food holds up to the staff's boasting description and the laid back atmosphere. It seem purely Brazilian at first--with a shrine to Pele--but this is Brazilian outside of the box, with its Indian and Italian influence: creative curry dishes, bolognese, wild bass with bananas, tasty appetizers (fresh crab, baked provoleta in an iron skillet, and a bruschetta that's overflowing with heirloom tomatoes), not to mention a drink menu that successfully pulls off sakerinhas, quenching sparkling peach mojitos, assorted beer options, and a fantastic selection of wines (tempranillo and verdejo by the glass, along with other less complex options). This place is definitely going to give Cafe Havana a run for their money.

Pros: inexpensive, great for summer

Editorial from

The air at this Brazilian restaurant is as leisurely as one would expect from a South American cafe. The Nolita space is packed with round and rectangular tables, but diners don?t seem to mind the close quarters, and the staffers expertly…
