Samba Brazilian Steak House
Samba's full churrasco dinner ($27) gives you VIP access to a bountiful all-you-can-eat experience in a festive (and occasionally dancing and drumming) atmosphere. The south-of-the-equator steakhouse's salad bar overflows with delectable Brazilian side dishes of paellela and feijoada, crab legs, shrimp cocktail, caprese, french fries, and an assortment of cheese and olives. Since Brazilians view vegetarianism as a fanciful if unproven concept much like string theory or the existence of chupacabras, this might just be the only place herbivores will find anything they can eat at Samba. From there on out, a carnivorous carnival parade of servers in gaucho pants will arrive tableside bearing marvelous char-grilled meats skewered on swords, which they will then carve before your very eyes. You'll have your choice of filet mignon, linguica, bacon-swaddled turkey, parmesan-dipped chicken wings, rock-salt-marinated top sirloin, pork short ribs, and more. See if you can hit them all—a culinary challenge when one factors in your table's endless sides of fried bananas, baked cheese bread, polenta, and special seasoned fries. Wash everything down with a classic Brazilian caipirinha($7) in three flavors or one of Samba’s Brazilian wines by the glass (starting at $6) or the bottle (starting at $22).
