Founded in 2012 as Upright Brew House one of the top craft beer bars in New York, Upright transformed and elevated its cocktails, wines and food when Nuno joined Upright and we relaunched as Leitao in 2021.

Our authentic Portuguese menu has introduced New Yorkers to a home style street food that until now could only be enjoyed in Portugal.

Leitao translate to suckling pig, a traditional dish often enjoyed as a family. This concept of family drives our entire menu and service. Every dish should be enjoyed with friends and every guest is treated as family.
