Bossa Nova is opening another location in 2018, this time in Downtown in the swiftly developing South Park. The Brazilian restaurant will open in the Olympic by Windsor apartment building on the corner of Olympic and Olive.

According to the Los Angeles Downtown News, the company just signed a lease and will build-out a completely empty 5,000 square foot space, in what will be one of the largest for the 25-year-old company. Bossa Nova has longstanding locations in Hollywood, West LA, and West Hollywood. And while Bossa Nova identifies as Brazilian, the menu is geared towards pleasing all types of palates, while keeping late night hours.

Bossa Nova will be the first restaurant in the fairly young Olympic and Windsor building. The residential apartment building was built two years ago this March. The South Park area has eastern and southern borders at the 110 and 10 Freeways; with the east end at Main Street; and 8th Street to the north. There has been an influx of upcoming restaurants to the restaurant-light neighborhood, with Pizza Fire and Genwa Korean BBQ signing leases on nearby blocks.
