What do soccer and Brazil have in common? They both have a ball. It’s true: You’re in for a letdown if you want to have a sedate night at Yemanja Brasil. The place is designed for fun. The atmosphere there is downright electric, and the menu items follow suit. Start off with a caipirinha, Brazil’s best-loved drink, and move on to the rest of the menu – empanadas are a popular choice for appetizers, and you can’t go wrong with Yemanja’s seafood entrees, many of which are laced with coconut cream. Or jump right in with black-bean-based feijoada de ogum – Brazil’s national dish – made with beef, pork ribs and smoked sausage.
