The name is phonetic for "cooked" in Portuguese, but David Gilberg and Carla Gonçalves, the married team behind this BYOB, fill in the blanks with a culinary passion that elevates the rustic flavors of Portugal to a rare sophistication. From homemade breads to the duck rice, soulful soups and braised chicken gizzards (you'll actually want to eat), each dish is a gem of refined authenticity. Add in warm service and a flickering candlelit romance, and Northern Liberties has a charming new winner.
