Why You Should Go: We don’t all speak the same language, we don’t all use the same measurements and we don’t even all drive on the same side of the road, but just about everyone in the world knows that red means stop, and green means go. That’s the theory behind Chama Gaúcha Brazilian Steakhouse’s meaty churrascaria experience, where servers will bring you succulent, Brazilian-style meats as long as the green side of your personal card is in view. When you’ve gotten your fill, simply turn your card around to the red side until you're ready for more.
What You Should Know: You and a guest will get unlimited access to the salad bar, full of exotic vegetables, cheeses and other toothsome dishes. You’ll then help revive a classic Brazilian gaucho tradition, enjoying freshly-sliced meat at your own pace. A rotating menu (literally and figuratively) includes such mouth-watering cuts as Filet Mignon, Cordeiro (leg or rack of lamb), Frango (chicken legs and bacon-wrapped chicken breast), Costela (beef ribs) and Picanha, the house specialty prime cut of sirloin.
