Seattle’s only restaurant serving Brazilian cuisine inspired by the Pacific Northwest.

Alcove is a  32-seat dining room that has been in the Ribeiro family since 1999. In 2018, Chef Emme Ribeiro Collins took over her family's restaurant space and created Alcove - a restaurant concept inspired by her Afro-Brazilian roots and Pacific Northwest upbringing. Consisting of four communal tables, our dining room  was designed to accommodate our family-style service, encourage a sense of community and enjoy each others company the Brazilian way! 

Alcove serves a menu of  petiscos (Brazilian tapas)  made up of small to large plates that are meant for sharing. Alcove  has been critically acclaimed for its "delicious" and "upscale" food that hasn't lost its "Brazilian zest".

Alcove is  primarily a walk-in only restaurant. We do accept reservations  for parties of 8 or more.  To book a reservation please email or call 206-922-3557 

Located on the corner of Ravenna Blvd and Univesity Way, Alcove is the Brazilian restaurant in Seattle
