First Look: Brasilia on South Grand

September 30th 02:09pm, 2015



South American fare has joined the international strip of South Grand. Brasilia started serving up Brazilian and South American dinner at 3212 S. Grand Blvd., on Saturday, Sept. 19. Owners Jorge and Rachel Carvalho are restaurant veterans having owned both Café Brasil and Côco Louco, as The Scoop reported in April.

For their South Grand venture, the Carvalhos have created a brightly painted, relaxed eatery that seats around 50 inside with about 16 seats available on the patio.

Beef, chicken and seafood dominate the menu. Nine shareable starters include Brazilian-style chicken croquettes and marinated beef short ribs. Mixed greens tossed with ranch-like house dressing and can be topped with chicken, beef or a seafood mix for a large dinner salad. Fifteen entrees features three grilled chicken dishes, two beef offerings and the rest a mix of seafood, fish and combination plates most of which see accompanying rice, sauteed collard greens and sauteed seasonal vegetables.

While dessert is not currently listed on the menu, Brasilia does offer vanilla and chocolate Brazilian-style flan, a denser and more textural version of the more common Mexican flan. Two Brazilian beers and several cachaça (a spirit distilled from sugar cane and a national product of Brazil) cocktails.

Brasilia is open Tuesday through Sunday from 5 to 10 p.m. Here’s a first look at one of South Grand’s newest restaurants:
