Siri Mole & Cia
The name Siri Mole & Cia comes from a species of Brazilian soft-shell crab, and the seafood cuisine at this restaurant is also from the coast—specifically from the northeastern state of Bahia. Appetizers include a plate of crab legs and mussels steamed in broth. The signature dish among the main entrees is the rich moqueca—a hot fish stew made from a variety of seafood, coconut milk, and African dendê oil (bright orange palm oil). Non-seafood dishes are available, too. The tight dining area is predominated by earth tones, from the beige tiles and brick to the greenery framing the entrance.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
