Brazilian
Casa Restaurant serves Brazilian home cooking from different regions of this vast country. Being a delicious seafood moqueca from Bahia in the northeast or a dish made with organic chicken and okra from the state of Minas Gerais or the national dish of Brazil, the feijoada, a stew of prime meats and black beans with many little dishes on the side. The caipirinha (kai peh ree nha), the national drink of Brazil, comes in the original flavor of lime or in tropical variations such as passion fruit, cashew fruit and coconut. The desserts are all made in house daily and the Brazilian chocolate bonbons, the brigadeiros, are a Brazilian's favorite!

Lovely warm greeting, our reservation resulted in being seated immediately although the place was packed, was food freaking delicious as always. The Bahia seafood stew is amazing, has a ton of fish in it, and the sauce is worth drinking (not that I did). The delicious sautéed riced cauliflower is a perfect alternative to white rice for those avoiding carbs. The calamari appetizer with lime and house-made hot sauce was wonderful. I love this restaurant.

What a great find. Casa is a very quiet space. the food was great. We had the octopus salad which was really tasty. The grilled zuchini with garlic was amazing. The chicken appetizer was also great, really well seasoned. The only dish that wasn't our favorite were the empanda's.

the only otnher thing to know is the wine list isn't that extensive.

This is a neighborhood favorite! Intimate space, but able to handle groups of up to 6 or 8. If larger, I'd consider renting the whole space. The food is consistently great and there is a warm and friendly vibe: ) Good for a date or a little gathering. Feels like being with family and friends. I highly recommend.

The Brazilian national dish is not to be missed! It combines textures, colors and flavors that are unusual in American food. We loved the other dishes as well as the service. Vegetarian friendly.

This place is a neighborhood gem that never disappoints, great food & drink, warm people. While I have a couple of standing favorites on the regular menu (Moqueca de Peixe & Feijoada), it pays to listen: our server mentioned a special I just couldn't pass up: an octopus-only moqueca that was outstanding. Also, I cannot resist the passionfruit & lime caipirinhas.

I went to Casa Brazilian with my girlfriend for her birthday. This place did not disappoint.

The restaurant is small in size but has a cute atmosphere. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Willing to answer questions on the menu and the food items. Though we didn't need any help (my girlfriend's father grew up in Brazil) the couple next to us did have a lot of questions not only on what certain items were, but how they were prepared. It appeared they had some dietary restrictions and the restaurant was willing to do what they could to accommodate. The waitress was very patient and even went back to the kitchen to ask the chefs if it was possible to make some alterations to how they made certain dishes (i.e. substitute butter with olive oil).

The food was also great. We got the Pao de Queijo (cheese bread) to start which came out warm and soft. For main course I had the Filet Mignon which was cooked perfectly (I asked for it medium) and my girlfriend had the Bife Acebolado (thin pan fried steak) which she also loved (I had a taste and can also confirm it was very well cooked). The portions were great filling us both up. We also ordered a couple of Caipirinhas which tasted fresh (also not watered down which was great).

Overall, we were both very content and do plan on going back again. I definitely recommend this place to anyone.

It was our 6th time in this Village-gem! It’s one of my favorite in the neighborhood.
The food is authentically Brazilian and the waiters and waitresses always nice and friendly. Caipirinha was good, although they should have a bigger variety of fruits, in my opinion. Pudim de leite was over cooked this time, but still tasty!

This fine and fun establishment still survives after years of solid performance with a perfected menu and some of the most reliable dishes in the West Village. Excellent service, careful preparation of every dish my dinner companions and I have ever ordered, Casa is a rock on Bedford that never fails to please in almost every way. If only there were a way to reduce the noise level. It is a great incentive to make reservations for earlier in the evening before the howling partiers descend on the place to snap pictures of one another over a couple of appetizers and lots of alcohol. So go later at your own risk.

This is one of my top five restaurants in NYC. The food is incredible. I bring anyone here who I want to impress. Unfortunately it gets cacophonous when it is full, but at least their music is kept low (or do they even play music? I can't remember, which is a good sign)
