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.
