Dining, Shopping & Entertainment

In a chic setting where the staff is friendly, and the food is amazing, Paulista Brazilian Kitchen & Taproom serves the best Brazilian street food in the area, with refreshing beer, cider, and craft cocktails. There are three words to describe the exceptional Almond and Oak - trendy, rustic, and delicious. Their dishes are constructed like art, the drinks are zippy and vibrant, and the atmosphere is warm and fun.
