Description
Bem-vindo!
It is our warmest pleasure to make your dining experience absolutely enjoyable.

Our name Bossa Nova is derive from a genre of Brazilian music which was compose and written during the 1950's and 60's. This music is a fusion of samba and jazz of which has become the most popular music in Brazil.

Bossa Nova is not a fast food establishment. We take our time to freshly prepare your meal. Our commitment for excellent food quality and ingredients goes back to 1993 when we open our very first restaurant in West Hollywood.

It will be a great satisfaction to cook for you and make your dining experience with us deep gratifying.
