Botequim, a Brazilian Lair Beneath The Fourth

Marco Moreira and Joann Makovitzky of Tocqueville and 15 East opened their Brazilian restaurant Botequim on Wednesday in the sprawling basement beneath The Fourth. Walls lined with large graffiti paintings, arched ceilings, and no windows give the main dining the appearance of a hip lair one might find in a posh section of Rio. A second dining room with a skylight into The Fourth's dining room and wood paneled walls has a more cabin-like vibe.
The restaurant already had a practice run with its month-long World Cup pop-up, but the menu has expanded considerably. Half of the items are small plates including bacalhau croquettes and "grilled shrimp on the beach." On the heavier side of things there is suckling pig and feijoda, the national dish of Brazil, made here with braised beef, collards, farofa, cashew rice, and orange.
