Le Jazz is a small, cozy French restaurant, but one visit to this place and you will agree that it is well worth checking this place out. This place does get a lot of customers on the weekends; however, the staff is very helpful and works very hard to help you, even suggesting their favorite dishes. Steak Au Poivre is one of the menu favorites. If you manage to sit next to the kitchen window, it is a joy to see the chef and staff preparing their creations for other patrons to enjoy, as well as read the chalk board for the daily specials. Their decor is also (as expected) very much inspired by famous jazz musicians. Be aware, large groups are not recommended, and no reservations are taken.

Confined seating and exposed brick walls surround the buffet that forms the centerpiece of the warm and welcoming place.

Mercearia Do Conde started out its life as a grocery store in 1991. Today, the first thing you will have to do when you walk in to this restaurant for the first time, is pick up your jaw off the floor. Inside the space is taken over by multitudes of colorful and artistic Brazilian decorations strung up from pretty much every inch of free space. Somehow though, this riot of color is not jarring and rather charming. The menu features a collection of Brazilian and Asian dishes, including a number of original concoctions and creative twists on traditional recipes. The Tunisian spiced salad with Moroccan couscous and the pumpkin and dried meat risotto are specialities, however every dish is marked by skilful execution and explosive flavors.
