Our kitchen, Cozinha de Carnaval, features Brazilian Street Food.  Menu highlights include grilled meats and vegetables on skewers, fresh salads, Pastéis, and, of course, a great burger and fries. 

 

Stop by every Monday for a Brazilian take on a New Orleans tradition when we serve Feijoada—a traditional black bean stew with pork & beef served over rice. 

Cozinha de Carnaval's chef, Gustavo Naar, was born in Rio de Janeiro.  His menu combines family recipes from Brazil with local influences he learned throughout his 11 year career cooking at establishments in his adopted home of New Orleans.  

The restaurant is located inside Carnaval Lounge, and is open daily from 5pm
