Na Brasa

Ate there last week, and just getting around to this report. (By coincidence, I was in Brazil during the end of March & enjoyed "the real thing" with some locals who I work with.) Our dinner started with the salad bar, of course. Lots of good cheeses, some roasted potatoes, various veggies etc. Good quality, pretty standard offerings. While eating our salads, the sides started to arrive, which were excellent. I loved the warm bread with cheese at the center, the grilled polenta, and the fried bananas. Delicious and authentic! Then the meats began to arrive. I started with a grilled lamb chop, which was slightly crispy on the outside and juicy & flavorful on the inside. Next came fillet chunks, top sirloin and my second favorite: garlic steak.

On walking in, I noticed there was a cart for making fresh drinks table side - probably caiperinhas, but we weren't drinking that night.

Service was very good, as expected. Our server was attentive & pleasant, but not pushy. Our water was refilled quickly, and he went over how their process worked since it was our first time there.

Pricing was reasonable in my opinion, based on $35 per person for the entrees. I would definitely go back, as it is a closer option for me without the parking hassle and providing very high quality. In fact, next time, I really need to try those drinks with fresh fruits & herbs...
