We walk in and immediately I am struck by the beauty of this place. It's not modern or chic but it's beautiful in a rustic kind of way. At the entrance, they have a magnificent 27-ft tall wine cellar standing next to their beautiful bar. Colorful wall murals throughout the dining rooms depict scenes of the Gaucho lifestyle and culture in Brazil and Dramatic lighting, textured walls and dark wood make this place warm and inviting.
Of course, I had Eugene pose in front of some of the huge murals.
The salad bar is impressive 'cause it's not your usual selection of greens. They have that too but in addition they have roasted red peppers and asparagus, mozzarella balls, smoked salmon, and some amazing cheese.
But friends, you don't come here for the salad, you come here for the meat! As the servers come around with their meat of choice, you get to taste everything from bacon wrapped filet mignon..
to smoked sausage....
to perfectly cooked lamb..
in fact, you start ODing a bit on all the meat...
You feel a bit overwhelmed and a little anxious by all the food that's swirling around you but you can't get over how delicious and succulent each piece of meat tastes. Pure heaven!
Now the most genius part of this place? The red/green coaster they give you signals, "Bring it on, baby! I can take more!" or "Woah Nelly, let me unbuckle my pants."
That day, they were having problems with their electricity so they didn't have their famous cheese bread but we hear it's delicious! They made up for it by giving us this amazing flan - quite possibly the best flan I have ever had, perfect consistency, just the right amount of caramel sauce. A must have dessert!
