Keep Westword Free

Emporio do Brasil now Little Brazil -- and that's just the start of the changes

The former Emporio do Brasil has big plans. It's already changed its name to Little Brazil, and within the next few weeks will move from the small spot on Federal Boulevard where it's been for five years to a much larger space near Colorado Boulevard and Leetsdale.

The new Little Brazil will still include a market, but it will expand into a full-scale restaurant, turning out a menu of traditional Brazilian fare, including the excellent feijoada that earned a spot on our 100 Favorite Dishes list.

We'll dish up more details as they become available.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
