Three guys heading to Rio - any restaurant advice is appreciated!

We are arriving in Rio on a Wednesday and departing on a Sunday. That gives us 4 nights for dinners. We are three men (all 38-40) who enjoy a fun scene and a great time. If a particular restaurant is better on a particular day of the week then let us know!

Some places that I have been and enjoyed are:
- Sushi Leblon
- Porcao (the original near sugarloaf)
- Satricon
- Braz (Jardin Botanico)

- Frontera
- Via Sete
- Alessandro & Frederico
- Fornera Sao Sebastiano

Others I have heard of and would like to try are:
- Manekineko (most likely the Ipanema location - unless any of you would say Leblon is better)
- Porcao (Ipanema)
- Stravaganze
- Celeiro

What do you Rio diners think? For instance, would you recommend Manekinko over Sushi Leblon? Stravaganze over Braz? Celeiro over Frontera? Any other suggestions all together???

Any suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated!
