The staff at Tropical Café patrol the restaurant’s perimeter constantly, spears in hand. They’re not on guard duty, though. Rather, they’re servers, carving off portions of freshly roasted Brazilian barbecue. They stop at every table, offering their savory cargo to diners who have flipped their personal dining card green side up, indicating that they might be in danger of consuming plant matter from the extensive salad bar if more meat does not arrive soon.
The taste of culture doesn’t stop at the barbecue, however. Tropical Café fills weekends with live musical performances of South American and Brazilian folk music. Wednesday evenings are devoted to karaoke, the classic contest made more interesting by participants who sing with mouthfuls of meat.
It seems almost structurally impossible: eleven ingredients, including Chicken, bacon, calabresa sausage, hearts of palm, and mozzarella. It’s a lot for one thin crust pizza to handle, but Chef Zach Chaves pulls it off with his namesake Extravaganza pie. Built from housemade dough and sauce, his other 18 specialty pizzas likewise test the limits of dough with mountains of toppings, from steak tips and hardboiled eggs to Brazilian favorites such as malagueta pepper and catupiry cheese.
Other never-frozen Brazilian ingredients spice up Chef Zach's menu, including cuts of Brazilian steak and the X-Nervoso burger, two beef patties topped with catupiry, ham, bacon, and potato sticks. He balances his Brazilian flavors with more traditional American tastes, such as BBQ chicken sandwiches and turkey clubs. Feasts unfold inside a spacious dining room decorated with hand-drawn murals of famous American and Brazilian figures, such as Elvis and Brazilian Elvis impersonators.
