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.
