Authentic Portuguese food and it's really good! The menu changes frequently; they write it on a big chalkboard and as the night goes on, items start getting erased from the board. I speak from experience....as I sadly saw my dreams of garlic shrimp get wiped away with a quick swipe.
Small space, so please make a reservation or you'll be waiting awkwardly in a space that's way too tight for you to be hanging out in (winter problems). They do have a bigger outside area in the back, so once the warmer weather comes, there will be more options.
A truly great, rustic little spot. read lessSara G.3/30/2019

So finally today we made it!! And as soon as we entered, we were very welcomed by a waiter and he explained the one and only cute chalk board menu on the wall. And we were quickly seated. My husband wanted to try the garden snail fish, which was not on the menu for the day, but luckily they had them in stock so we were able to order the dish. While we were waiting for our foods to be served, we were so captivated by their cute decor and cozy environment. Additionally, Broa is byob so we brought our own bottle of wine, the waiter was very nice and kindly opened the bottle and served us the glasses. Most lovely part was that their food was simply AMAZING. We ordered several dishes since it's small dishes. And we loved every single dish. They had right amount of seasoning and perfectly cooked for flavor. Altogether, we had such an amazing time and we will definitely come back to this place. read lessRachel J.10/28/2018

We try to visit every time we are in town, which is quite often. We choose our AirBnB in this neighborhood so we get here at least one night, but often we end up here many nights. The food is yummy and the service is awesome. The menu is different every night, so we are always trying something new. Last night it was a spicy roast chicken and seasoned fries for my hubby. I ended up trying to steal the fries because they were some of the best I have ever had. I had a yummy plate of garlic shrimp and rice. I started off with a large chickpea salad, which was generous enough to make my lunch for today as well. We have also tried the meat and cheese plate in the past, plus other chicken, pork, and fish plates. All have been excellent. The food is served as it prepared and finished- like a tapas bar. We personally love this as it allows us to slow down, share, and enjoy each plate. We never feel rushed here, and find the open-air tables a great place to relax after a long day of work. This place is BYOB which adds to it being a great value. Don't forget to pick up your wine or beer before showing up. read lessJennifer T.9/25/2019

Broa is small, semi-intimate, and understated. Walking by various times, I never even noticed the downstairs entrance into the restaurant. Take a photo of the chalkboard menu, it's updated everyday-- there's no menu. We were welcomed by the owner. Bring your own wine or beer: there's a store located about 2 blocks south (CoolVines on Grove). We had Pastéis(Bolinhos) de Bacalhau (cod fish cakes), Mexilhão (mussels) with garlic and chorizo. Small portion plates like "largish tapas." Delicious! read lessNeal H.1/18/2019
