The flip between Nature's Way in Westwood and Mesa Brazilian Eatery happened rapidly. Mesa opened today with free Pao De Queijo (Brazilian cheese bread) given to all customers. Ricardo Kim and Tiago Kim will be cooking authentic Brazilian comfort food including classics like Estrogonofe de Frango (chicken stroganoff) or Picanha (brazilian rump cap steak) with black beans, collard greens and rice with vegetarian options also available. The hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturdays, closed on Sundays. Breakfast options will be coming soon. [EaterWire] — Keyla Vasconcellos
