Plenty Cafe is all about European cafe culture — the sort of all-day hangout spot that can take you from morning coffee to after-dinner drinks.

But on Friday, January 26th, owner Anthony Mascieri is hosting a celebration of Brazilian food, South American drinks, and live music at the cafe’s Queen Village location.

While Mascieri draws his inspiration from Europe, he’s fallen in love with Brazil over multiple visits. Tomorrow night’s menu — a selection of petiscos, or small plates — will showcase his Brazilian favorites. Bossa nova outfit Minas will play from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m. and from 8:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m.

The pesticos on offer include pão de queijo, a Brazilian cheesy bread that Plenty will make gluten-free, in addition to chicken empanadas with piri piro aioli, mortadella sliders with peppadew relish and sharp provolone, and churrasquinhos, steak skewers served with farofa (a toasted cassava flour dish) and chimichurri sauce.
