Coco Louco Brasil (512 N. Euclid Avenue; 314-367-1600), the legally embattled Brazilian restaurant in the Central West End, closed Monday, September 30, according to Dishcrawl's Sara Graham. It was supposed to compete in this weekend's competition but Graham says it had to pull out due to being, well, out of business. Earlier this year, owner Jorge Carvalho pleaded guilty of punching a Ford Focus and was sentenced to two years unsupervised probation, anger management classes, community service and ordered to pay $500 in restitution, according to court documents.

I hate to hear it. I a Ways had great food and service there, and Jorge treated us like personal guests.


Work on the new restaurant has already begun.

I had a HORRIBLE experience there. Only customers in the place and it took 30 min to bring us water?? We had to keep feeding the meter because it ended up being a 90 minute lunch. I'm not sorry to see it go.

Didn't his place on McKnight & Manchester get closed down for underage drinking? That's what I heard.
