Brazil has given us so many beautiful things.

Their approach to parades.

The purity of their soccer.

And their contributions to the supermodeling community alone are just...

But today, let’s talk about the short ribs.

Specifically, those from Botequim, an underground powerhouse of Brazilian dinners, opening tomorrow near Union Square. The breakdown, right this way...

The vibe: Abandoned subway station (with Keith Haring tags) meets charming communal loft. Seriously, have a look in the slideshow

The lineage: It’s from the couple who brought you Tocqueville and 15 East, which worked out.

The move: Group dinner. Bask at one of the communal tables, consume caipirinhas in abundance and learn the true meaning of rib steak for two.

The meal: We mentioned the short ribs. They’re in the feijoada (Brazilian meat stew). We failed to mention the suckling pig and the Brazilian sausage.

Sorry. Won’t happen again.
