Alcy De Souza, started cooking early in his life. As a kid, he used to help his mother in the kitchen preparing meals for his younger siblings and never stopped from there. He opened several successful restaurants in Brazil. With an entrepreneur spirit and a vision to have a Brazilian restaurant in the US, Alcy De Souza came to USA in 1987 to pursue his American dream. At the Grill From Ipanema, Alcy saw the opportunity to create a traditional Brazilian restaurant bringing back the flavors of home to Washington DC. Alcy wanted to stay faithful to roots of Brazilian cuisine and so he crafted a menu that included dishes such as the Feijoada, Moqueca a Baiana, Picanha, Bobo de Camarao.
