Great collection of drinks and bar snacks

They have a great "moela" which is a delicious stew of chicken gizzards. We were in a group of 8, but 7 of us tried that for the first time and loved it. The service is great.

O Cravinho is a smart-looking dark, wood lined bar that is teeming with drinkers and savvy nibblers from every walk of life. We happened upon their clove flavored cachaça, one of the hallmarks of the house and felt that we had found something and someplace truly original!
