In early 1993
In 1993, Francisco and Aurelio joined forces and opened the first Bossa Nova restaurant in West Hollywood. The community was extremely receptive and supportive, and we became an instant success. Our original Bossa Nova restaurant still stands strong, to this date.
In 1998, we opened up Bossa Nova’s second location on Sunset Boulevard. Making sure to serve the (notoriously late-night) Hollywood area, this restaurant stays open until 3:30AM everyday.
Continual success in Hollywood led us to open our third Bossa Nova restaurant in 2007. Located in the Westside of Los Angeles, we are proud to serve Westwood, Cheviot Hills, Santa Monica, Culver City, and the surrounding communities.
Followed by the success of our established 3 stores, in 2018 we opened Bossa Nova South Bay offering our already known dishes as well as baked goods and Brazilian and Continental Gourmet products.
In 2021, we moved our very first Bossa Nova location on Robertson to the renowned Sunset Plaza, featuring our very first in-house bar.
Starting off the year strong, we opened our newest addition to the Bossa Nova restaurant chain, in DTLA.
