New Westside Churrascuria: Brasa Brasil Grill

Lee by the Sea | Sep 13, 2007 10:35 PM

Over the last several months we have been watching Brasa Brasil Grill get built, since it's just one door away from Giovanni's Trattoria, where we go fairly often. Since Brasa's one-page website just got "Now Open!" splashed across it, I gave them a call. They opened last Monday 9/10. I haven't been there yet (watch this space), but here's the story:

It's a real churrascuria, according the guy I talked with, who had worked at Picanha in Burbank. There's a big salad bar and 8 or 9 meat choices "of good quality" at dinner. Salad-only at dinner is $14.50; salad and meats at dinner is $22.95. At lunch those prices are $12.50 and $14.95, respectively, with fewer meat choices. One price, all you can eat.
(There is even a pre-sized takeout package, $11.50 lunch, $18.50 dinner.)

No wine/beer license yet, so BYO (I think he said corkage is free.) Since he said it's like Picanha, I presume they'll have somebody circling around the room and slicing meats onto your plate. From the outside it's the same size store as Giovanni's, so it will be interesting to see how the space works as a churrascuria. (You could probably fit 8 Giovannis into Picanha.)
