Basil in the Grove 


Leave it to Brazilian food to bridge the longtime racial divide between the black and white neighborhoods of Coconut Grove. Basil in the Grove reaches out to both with hearty, affordable Brazilian steak and stew, with some East-Indian dishes thrown in for good harmony. Call early to order feijoada, served only on Saturdays - the hearty black bean stew of salted pork and six different sausages is Brazil's national dish and the Portuguese version of soul food. Basil's other signature dish, picanha, is a carnivore's dream – a tri-tip roast seasoned with garlic salt and grilled with a strip of fat down the side for flavor. Pair it with pao de quejo, cheese bread that melts in your mouth.
