Music at Esperanto
In celebration of a friend's birthday, a few of us dined at Esperanto Restaurant in New York's East Village. What draws me to this place is not only the delicious Brazilian food but the nightly live music, with performances starting after 8:30pm. The musicians are always top notch, and drinking sangria while listening to some samba transports me and the rest of the dining patrons to a cafe in South America. Last night, Catarina Dos Santos, a phenomenal singer and performer (who I happened to know personally, it was just by chance that I caught her set) entertained the audience, bringing some to their feet while others began to pick up instruments and play along.
Esperanto is located on Avenue C at 9th Street and has live music every night of the week - be sure to stop by and enjoy the delicious food and amazing entertainment!
