Actually the restaurant is called Miss Favela which is funny because that is the name for slums in Rio. So there will be tons of patrons slurping down caipirinhas in this homage to poverty, disease, crime, despair and death.
The humor in people scurrying to escape and avoid New York’s slums and ghettos to go eat in a restaurant which seems to celebrate the aesthetic escapes me right now.
I mean what makes celebrating slum in a foreign country more appealing than one right in your own backyard? And I wonder if there will be drug trafficking and crime in Miss Favela? Because that’s what happens in real favelas.
