When Ricardo and Nancy Mermet opened Tango Restaurant, their mission was to bring a flavorful slice of Argentina to the Northeast. Sides of beef rotate slowly on spits over an open-flame grill, searing to premium tenderness and juiciness before a knife-wielding asadore (grill chef) carves off the choicest cuts. The menu revolves around beef entrees, such as filet mignon topped with roquefort cheese, but it also showcases grilled chicken marinated in lemon sauce and seafood dishes such as seasoned sole prepared with red sauce and cheese. Adventurous diners can try delicacies such as kidney and sweetbreads (usually made from the throat or pancreas), and super-adventurous diners can enjoy their meals while suspended above a shark tank.

Tango's vinegar-parsley chimichurri sauce complements the flavor of entrees, leading some diners to eat up to 2 pounds of meat in a single sitting, according to Ricardo and Nancy. Tango's chic wood bar pours wine and beer, and an open space invites diners to shimmy off their dinner by performing the eatery's eponymous dance amid dim mood lighting and exposed brick walls.

“Basta, basta!” The words may as well be a mantra at Midwest Grill. The term, meaning “enough” in Portuguese, is the perfect finish to the churrascaria’s all-you-can-eat cavalcade of grilled meats and hearty seafood dishes. Passadores—the Brazilian word for waiters—rotate around tables, slicing fresh-grilled skewers of beef sirloin, Brazilian-style ribs, and succulent lamb and pork loin on to plates at the feaster’s demand. This dining style is known as rodízio, and it doesn't just apply to churrasco meats; patrons can also opt for seafood options, such as Brazilian fish stew and sautéed shrimp, or engage a server in a duel with a carving fork. The all-you-can-eat meal is served at a fixed price at both lunch and dinner, and includes unlimited helpings from the salad bar and hot-food buffet. Each of Midwest Grill's locations also houses a TV-lined bar, where mixologists concoct cocktails and pop open bottles of Brazilian beer and wine.

Hotel restaurants are often a side note, but Bisuteki Japanese Steak House has become an institution in and of itself. Over the last 40 years, nearly three million people have spent an evening here being entertained by chefs trained in the art of teppanyaki exhibition cooking. As guests whet their appetites on salad and onion soup, they watch chefs set their cooktops ablaze and flip morsels of meat and veggies through the dancing flames.

Nearly any combination of meats can be selected for a teppanyaki entree—steak and scallops, chicken and calamari, or even a pair of lobster tails that probably came from two different lobsters. Chefs use fresh seafood and free-range chicken and beef, all of which are also found in teriyaki and noodle dinners. In addition to cooked fare, there's a menu of raw sushi prepared as maki, nigiri, and sashimi.

Where would we be without food? On a planet dominated by merciless banana overlords, that's where. With today's Groupon, $35 gets you $75 worth of soup, salad, meat, fish, and drinks at the Oak Room, located inside Back Bay's Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel. This elegant eatery has won numerous honors from Boston Magazine, including Best Steakhouse Restaurant in 2003. Your Groupon is good for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and brunch, but cannot be used on Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day Eve, Valentine's Day, or in doppelganger dimensions where Picasso was an art thief and the sun wears cool shades.
