Williamsburg, a must-stop while in NYC, is home to a particularly energetic place. Samba, caipirinhas, feijoada and great vibes are Miss Favela’s offer to locals and visitors. A real taste of Brazil!

Miss Favela is a cozy restaurant inspired by Rio de Janeiro’s bars concept. It offers a great cuisine selection, Brazilian common drinks and beer, and a vibrant environment.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon and by 3 pm the place was already full, so, if you are going on a Saturday, you may want to consider arriving a little early to grab a seat.

This spot is for everyone, there were families having lunch, couples having a drink or cup of coffee, friends celebrating birthdays (us!) and even though every seat was taken, more and more people kept coming in!

NYC Street Art - Japan in BK

 

New York City is filled with artistic talent, and it's no surprise that the streets are filled with art, whether commissioned / legal or not. Every week, we post 1 new cool find from our sidewalk meanderings. Do you know the artist? Have a cool spot to recommend? Please let us know in the comments!
