Our Story


"I had a strong appreciation of Brazilian cuisine, developed while living in Brazil for 4 years, and strengthened by my yearly trips to Rio de Janeiro to visit my father. We knew that the palates of SF foodies were evolving. Sophisticated diners were slowly broadening their interest in Latin American cuisine to countries throughout Latin America, including Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Peru, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and more! So we decided to create a concept inspired by simple, traditional dishes popular in Latin America."

"We are proud to be small business owners. San Francisco foodies have expectations that make it exciting to create a new restaurant concept in the city.  We began experimenting in the kitchen. We had a lot of fun! We found common culinary themes unrestricted by borders.  We picked popular Latin American specialties to which we added our own unique twists, making them craveable and easily appreciated by Laurel Village customers."
