Located right off of west 46st street in between 5th and 6th ave, Ipanema was a fantastic option.
I received such warm and amazing service there that I cant wait to go back next time I am in Manhattan.
My waiter, Reinaldo, was absolutely friendly and attentive. He made me feel as if I was back in Rio de Janeiro, where people are happy and outgoing.
As an appetizer you will receive small pieces of sliced bread and butter. I am a big fan of plain bread with butter so this was definitely a plus for me, not to mention that it was also delicious.
I ordered the picanha plate and let me start by telling that one plate alone can easily feed two people. It came with 4 nice size pieces of sizziling picanha, white rice, black beans, french fries and fresh farofa.
Everything was very delicious,however, their fries have to be the best fries I have ever eaten. It was just delicious! According to Reinaldo, the secret is on the cut, but I dont believe he would give the recipe away that easily.
I was then convinced to have a piece of the famous brazilian desert “pudim” also known in america as flan. Turns out the piece was a huge piece but it was also delicious and I am so glad I had it.
Very happy I went to Ipanema, great service, wonderful food and amazing staff. Will most certainly go back!
