Bossa Nova, which is the Portuguese phrase for “new trend” (and also the surfer expression for “awesome”) is a small Brazilian place just west of Sunset and La Brea. Their menu is an odd mix of South American and Italian dishes, sometimes combined on the same plate. This results in tasty, unusual dishes like the Chicken Brochette, which featured deep-fried, bacon-wrapped chicken (or shrimp) in a gorgonzola cheese sauce, with a side of Italian bread. Whatever they’re doing, it’s popular, because you can usually expect a 15-20 minute wait for a table during the dinner rush. But it’s worth it for the gnocchi, and what is definitely one of the best Caesar salads in Hollywood.

Brazilian spicy
Meets Italian savory
In L.A. crazy
