Brazilian churrascarias—a kind of Portuguese barbeque joint—have their roots in traditional celebrations of a successful harvest. At modern churrascarias, waiters walk around with skewers or roasted meat, cutting off all-you-can-eat portions of steak, pork, and chicken directly onto your plate. Diners interested in rounding out a years' worth of protein can find endless accompaniments at the salad bar and buffet of Brazilian hot dishes or try traditional drinks such as caipirinha or guarana, a Brazilian soda.

At By Brazil, gauchos whisk skewers of meat from table to table, carving the choicest cuts of top sirloin, passion fruit-marinated pork loin, and barbecued chicken. This all-you-can-eat churrasco feast is part of the restaurant's rich Brazilian tradition, which guests can soak up during lunch and dinner. Most of the staff is fluent in Portuguese too, so they can help diners learn how to properly pronounce certain menu items. If you're not up for the buffet, you can nibble on appetizers that include Brazilian sandwiches, polenta, or fried yucca, then wash them down with an assortment of exotic beverages. These range from imported Brazilian beers to refreshing caipirinhas, a cocktail made with sugar cane hard liquor, sugar, and lime, that flows freely down the Amazon river.

The Three Faces of M Grill Authentic Churrascaria Centuries ago, formally dressed gauchos—or, Brazilian cowboys—conducted festive fireside roasts, during which they'd use their swords to serve grilled meats to their guests. Today, this tradition carries on at M Grill, an authentic churrascaria restaurant. Here, expert waiters present freshly grilled and skewered meats tableside, slicing off portions for diners while it's still hot. All-You-Can-Eat Meat (and More) Upon arriving at M Grill, you needn't scan dozens of menu items to decide what to order. Instead, you pay a set price and eat to your heart's content. All you have to do is flip a card: the green side tells the waiter to keep the meat coming, and the red side indicates you're stuffed with enough protein to bench-press your date. The set price also includes M Grill's expansive salad bar, which is stocked with all sorts of fresh veggies and cheeses, as well as a hot buffet with fried yucca, beef stroganoff, and fried plantains. Cocktail Lounge In addition to skewers of meat, the restaurant also houses an impressive wine wall stocked with more than 1,500 bottles. But cocktails here are taken seriously, too. For its passionfruit caipirinha, for instance, M Grill buys passionfruit at the pinnacle of its freshness, then freezes it to use throughout the year. Recently, CBS Los Angeles also recognized the eatery's pisco sour cocktail as one of the best in the city for its frothy egg whites and hand-squeezed lime juice.
