The name is phonetic for “cooked” in Portuguese, but David Gilberg and Carla Gonçalves, the married team behind this Northern Liberties BYOB, fill in the blanks with a culinary passion that elevates the rustic flavors of Portugal to rare sophistication.
From homemade breads to the crispy duck rice, soulful caldo verde soup, and plump grilled sardines, each dish is a gem of refined authenticity served with warm service in flickering candlelit romance.
Large sharing portions make this a good bet for groups.
Recent favorites: the piri-piri-spiced frango chicken and sparerib Sunday special, plus an amazing “crudo” of salt-cod.
