It’s possible to find Brazilian barbecue in El Paso County. But according to São Paulo, Brazil, native Jady Agard, that’s a narrow representation of Brazilian cuisine. It’s part of what drove her to start São Paulo Springs, her new digs in the Carter Payne, where she shares space with Local Relic and Immerse Cuisine.

Agard’s a fourth-generation cook, despite her mother’s efforts to warn her away from the trade. Alongside a career in fashion design, she’s always enjoyed cooking for friends and family. That only turned into a career a few months ago, when Local Relic co-owner Jeff Zearfoss had space for a dining option come up in the Carter Payne. Agard credits him with persuading her to share her culinary heritage, and so far, the response has been strong.

320 S Weber St
Colorado Springs, CO

Her cuisine is traditional southern Brazilian and especially Paulista — that is, from São Paulo — dishes. The big one: feijoada, Brazil’s national dish, a stew of black beans, pork and beef, served over jasmine rice with collard greens and a seasoned cassava flour mix called farofa. She also offers curry, empanadas and desserts, with a few vegan options.
