Craft beer and traditional Portuguese plates in an eclectic setting
This is a good choice if you’re looking for a cozy ambiance and a good local meal. The majority of the plates are smaller than you might expect from a typical Portuguese restaurant, but the flavor makes up for it. Start with the whiskey-fried shrimp or the portobello mushrooms stuffed with dates, gorgonzola, and bacon. For the main course, try the shrimp curry, the mozzarella and pesto-stuffed chicken, or the osso buco (veal shanks braised with vegetables and white wine) and follow it all up with a scrumptious lemon tart for dessert. With an excellent wine list and Oitava Colina in the bottle, it’s not a bad idea to pop in for a snack and a refreshment if nothing else.
