We don't eat Brazilian cuisine very often but jump at the chance to sample it. This is a good place for that as they have a menu featuring lots of Brazilian favorites. Portions are generous, prices reasonable (especially for NY) and service is friendly. On a street featuring other Brazilian places, this may be the best choice.

Always a great quick stop. When I long for a Brazilian taste, I always stop by for aps n caipirinha. The appetizers (salgadinho) is made fresh. I love the pastel de carne, bolinha de bacalhau, the staff is super friendly and very accommodating. Don't forget to finished it off with cafezinho ( espresso) and brigadeiro ( chocolate truffle)

We literally chanced upon this place as we were walking along this street and a quick google told us that this had great reviews and we thought, why not! Omg - firstly the service was soooo lovely! Our waiter was just such a lovely guy and was educating us so much on Brazilian food and different flavours and recommending various... More

Although we have Brazilian food daily at home while on vacation my teens still look for Brazilian food. My son chose Emporium after reading some reviews and I am SO GLAD we went there. The service is ' Brazilian style' a bit of patience is important. However it is effective and we absolutely loved. All dishes were cooked to perfection,... More

We went to Emporium on a Saturday night, with a group of twelve. It's strange to notice that the restaurant is half empty on a Saturday night. Tap water is served quickly, but it takes some time before orders are taken. The food is OK. Basic, nice, steak, but nothing more than that. I took the "Picanha na Grelha". A... More

My husband is a Brazilian meat snob. He had the filet parmigiana and I had a fish dish with shrimp in coconut sauce, which won a NYC voting. Both were stellar, + the coxinhas, caipiroskas & vinagrette. The flans are to die for too, esp the coconut one 😍 GO! You won't be disappointed!

We were in NYC for one night and were staying a few blocks away. We did a quick google search, read a few positive reviews and we were on our way to Emporium Brazil. The service was great, wait staff were very friendly and stopped to chat with us a little at the table. The authentic cocktails were great and... More

This is not the type of Brazilian restaurant where you go for an all-you-eat-unlimited-meat-kinda deal. This place serves authentic Brazilian cuisine and it's really good. As a starter, I shared the Aperitivo 46 with my wife and it was excellent for two. The sausages were amazing! For main course I had the feijoado (black bean stew with pork) which reminded... More

I have to agree with the person who wrote the review right before me, and said that the place was just OK. I went there to have lunch with a few friends, and the place was not packed at the time; however, we had to wait for almost 45 minutes to get any food. Everything that was served was just... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
