Brazilian Steakhouses in Concord

Select Local Merchants

Servers bearing 3-foot skewers of slow-cooked meat circulate the dining room looking for green ?go? cards. When diners flash them, they arrive at tables and carve slices of top sirloin, lamb, pork, and chicken?each smoked over mesquite wood?until they?re told to stop. Although the restaurant undoubtedly caters to carnivores, guests who prefer veggies can munch on meatless feasts composed of 35 different items, including caramelized bananas, Brazilian mashed potatoes, and pasta.

Inside Coco Louco Brasil’s dining room, swirls of aromatic steam dance above platters of fresh seafood and meat skewered and grilled in the traditional Brazilian churrasco style. From behind the full bar, the restaurant's mixologist tops off glasses with cocktails, including the signature Brazilian drink known as the caipirinha. Most weekend nights, a host of live musicians entertain patrons with music ranging anywhere from traditional Brazilian samba to modern pop to playing the Canadian frog xylophone.

Provoke your palate with empanadas de camarão, pastry-encased shrimp, cream sauce, and spicy tomato dipping sauce ($9), or let fresh mussels swim to your belly from a wine-bathed marisco buzios plate ($9). Yemanja Brasil's menu of Brazilian dinner bitables organizes proteins by their proper names: de carno/porco (beef/pork), do mar (seafood), de frango (chicken), or vegetariano. Feijoada de Ogum ($17), Brazil's national dish, is a stew of black beans, dried beef, smoked sausage, and pork ribs with rice and collard greens. Or get mouth mitts on frango minas with shredded chicken in a four-cheese raisin-cream sauce ($16). Vegetarians delight in the curried seasonal vegetables of arroz feijao botafogo ($11), whereas strict dessertists feel wholly respected with decadent layers of paveé da nena (champagne cookies layered with chocolate, egg-custard cream, and flavored whipped cream topped with chocolate sauce, $6).

"For many Cardinals fans, Mike Shannon has become as much a part of Cardinals baseball as the 'Birds on the Bat,'" Cardinals chairman William O. Dewitt, Jr. once said. Since playing his first Major League game as a Cardinal in 1962, Mike Shannon has stayed with the organization for more than 50 years. Beyond playing on three World Series teams and becoming an Emmy-winning sportscaster, Shannon has left his mark on the local sports culture with his eponymous restaurant.

As guests walk into Mike Shannon's Grill, repurposed gym lights glint off a trophy case stocked with awards from Shannon's personal collection. On another wall, more than 500 baseballs bear the autographs of greats like Ted Williams, Stan Musial, and Mickey Mantle. The Grill is far from a kitschy sports bar, however?in one room, guests sip pisco sours at a beautiful zinc bar set against walls the hue of a night-game sky; in another, they cut into steak oscar at lamplit tables in stately leather booths.

Though the menu does have an upscale slant?roast chicken with brussels sprouts, seared jumbo scallops?there's burgers and fries, too, which guests can dig into as they watch the game on one of the 18 flat-screen TVs. Outside, they can sip beers around the firepit or their most narcissistic friend on a patio that overlooks the Park at Plum Creek.

Though upgraded and modernized with new amenities, Sam’s Steakhouse is housed in an early-20th-century building and preserves an Old World charm while offering a selection of succulent steaks. Patrons can sidle up to a wooden bar or sit beneath soft track lighting at a table near a gently crackling fireplace. Large banquet settings and private party rooms are also available to host larger parties. Soft music enhances the atmosphere as appetizers such as lobster ravioli and shrimp fromage pave roads toward massive 24-ounce porterhouse steaks and fried lobster tails accompanied by delicate wines.

When most people think of art, their minds may fill with images of famous paintings or sculptures. But at Prime 1000, diners alight on a different kind of art––one the eatery dubs "the art of steak." With this approach, each dish is painstakingly prepared, with special attention paid to its presentation, which may include sprigs of fresh parsley or the autograph of da Vinci across a T-bone. Steaks are carefully selected for their flavor and tenderness, whether they hail from Australia or the nearby grassy fields of Missouri.
