Oficina Latina, the Pan-American Bistro located on 24 Prince Street in New York, is celebrating the Brazilian Carnival in New York from Feb. 16 to Feb. 21. In honor of the Carnvial, Oficina Latina will be offering a traditional Brazilian combination of Feijoada, – a black-bean peasant stew with pork leg, spinach, bacon and plantain served separately for you to mix in a coconut bowl – and Caipiriña – a cachaça-lime cocktail – for $22.
The Feijoada will be conceptualized by Consulting Chef Ilma Lopez, a veteran of renowned elBulli and Café Boulud. Mixologist Paolo Votano will be preparing the drinks.
Oficina Latina is a Latin American Oasis that hosts an extensive menu drawn from all parts of Latin America, and finally induced with a New York fusion. Chef de Cuisine Abraham Trindidad and Consulting Chef Ilma Lopez are from Mexico and Venezula respectively, and create dishes like pear and Tuna Kebabs from Ecuador, lime-poached calamari and scallops with an unusual pineapple-cilantro twist from Peru, sandwich-stand-staple classics of Uruguay and fine wines from Chile, Brazil and even Baja California.
Oficina Latina is open every day from 11:30am to 1am. For more information, visit www.oficinalatinanyc.com
