The area around Spring, Main Street and 9th Street continues to grow as a lunch (and sometimes breakfast) food court feeding the Fashion District and local loft dwellers. Tuesday brought the opening of WoodSpoon, a breakfast and lunch cafe serving Brazillian dishes like a Brazillian Chicken Pot Pie "hearts of palm, potato, olives, roasted corn" and a Pork Burger with "roasted cabbage, onions on a toasted country roll."
Wood Spoon owners Natalia Preira and Darius Danta have added sometime different to the area. Not many places where you can get Brazillian Grilled Beef or a Brazillian omelette downtown. I walked by earlier that opening day and the cafe had a good little crowd at lunch. And the cafe itself is not overdone and keeps the integrity of the space.
