There’s a great meal around every corner in New York City and you can surely find an “experience” to go with your dinner if you look hard enough. A quick Google search for “secret restaurants in NYC” will bring you results like the referral-only Bohemian, the Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridien, and the Back Room at Cafe Select. What you won’t find is Frevo. It’s so secret (and new) that the Google Search algorithm hasn’t picked up on it — yet.
The idea for the restaurant comes from Brazilian-born chef Franco Sampogna. He spent most of his career cooking in France, which explains the French connection. For Frevo, he is joined by his business manager and partner, Bernardo Silva.
You can experience this secret restaurant and its appetite-piquing tasting menu for $124; Fervo is open Tuesday through Saturday from 6pm to 11pm.
