And those who frequent Beco praise the food there. It popped up in Williamsburg less than a year ago, a block from McCarren Park. The park is home to frequent soccer games, and Beco is the kind of place you'd head to after a game.
"This is like a neighborhood place in Sao Paolo," bartender Rodrigo Franco said. "Good drinks, good prices, good portions."
Franco grew up on the border of Paraguay and Brazil, and Beco is his slice of home. And it attracts quite a few South Americans.
"The food is amazing," an Argentinian customer said. "I've always been in love with Brazil."
And the food ranges from breakfast sandwiches to more traditional Brazilian fare, like sausage finished with cachaca and salpicao, which is a chicken salad. There's also something called Moqueca.
To make it, Justyna Stachowicz sautes onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, garlic, coconut milk, shrimp, cilantro and the key ingredient, dende oil, which comes from a kind of palm.
"It's very nutty very strong flavor," Stachowicz said. "Too much in the Moqueca...will be too strong."
The Moqueca is served along with rice and collard greens, also popular in Brazil. There's an extensive list of South American cocktails for after that soccer victory.
