What is Tucumã?
Tucumã (too-koo-ma) is a fruit with fibrous pulp and orange skin and grows from a tree of the same name, a type of palm that can reach up to 50 feet in height. The word originates in Tupi, a native Brazilian language, and it translates to “fruit from a prickly plant” because it grows from long, black prickly leaves on the Tucumã tree.
Few things represent the resilient power of the Amazon as well as the Tucumã does. This strong and defiant palm is the first tree to grow after a fire and harvests tasty fruits.
About the Restaurant
Tucumã was born from a mix of love, nostalgia, and purpose. From the desire to bring a piece - the most delicious, of course! - of Brazil to Wisconsin.
Through the hands of Chef Lorraine Frossard, our kitchen has a mission to transform the ordinary into meaningful moments.
Our menu was created with a lot of love for you. Enjoy!
