Having enjoyed a meal at Caravela several months ago, we were eager to take our daughter there in June for dinner. We knew she would enjoy Portuguese cuisine. Once again the food was delicious and the service terrific. We started with shrimp cats and mussels....More

Chef Jose Lemos has been serving both quality interpretations of classic dishes and daring new ventures into the uncharted territories of food. Caravela's interior, designed by the award-winning Richard Bergeron, reflects the hip sensibilities of the surrounding area while also paying tribute to Portugal's storied past. The 50 seater restaurant offers the choice to observe passers-by or sit comfortably by the bar or intimately in this neat modern space.
