First Bite: Wood Spoon

New, 4 comments

J. Gold finds the Brazilian-inspired Wood Spoon, with its FDIMsters sipping triple-filtered cinnamon-tinged water, in a bit of an identity crisis. But that's not entirely a bad thing. "If you’ve been to Rio, you’ll recognize Wood Spoon’s heart as a chicly modest urban café built around smallish portions of grilled chicken, beef, fish or sausage and served with the inevitable black beans, rice, boiled greens and gritty manioc powder — a meal low-fat and balanced enough to eat before a night of dancing. Wood Spoon’s specialties, oddly enough, are chicken potpie and pork burgers, both of which are very good." [LAW]
