Fusion steakhouse Kravings channels Brazilian rodizio-style cooking with an unlimited supply of fire-roasted meat served tableside. Order the rodizio special and display nondiscriminatory nibbling practices on up to 12 premium meat cuts, such as steaks, chicken, pork, and seafood, presented on giant skewers or cedar planks and carved at the table ($16.95 for lunch, $37.95–$39.95 for dinner). Unlimited helpings of flame-licked meats—including tequila-lime chicken, leg of lamb, and filet mignon wrapped in bacon—test stomach storage space, and à la carte dinner entrees, such as lamb chops seasoned with mint-chardonnay sauce ($33.95), set a finite finish on jaw calisthenics. All rodizio specials come with a side and salad buffet that purveys more than 30 mammal-free and seasonal options, including soups, salads, sushi, and smoked salmon.
Channeling the rough-and-tumble west in its ambiance and rustic decor, Winchesters Grill & Saloon pays homage to its state's history with plentiful pictures of the Duke, cowboy memorabilia hanging from the walls, and a mélange of seafood and steak entrees. The menu resembles the geographic diversity of California, with fresh seafood entrees mingling with thick, rare steaks and juicy hamburgers. Winchesters owns up to its title as well, pouring more than 40 ales and beers on draft from Magic Hat to Moose Drool, and they serve any mixed drink under the sun on their year-round, heated outdoor patio.
From the bustling streets of Times Square to the equally vivacious streets of Hong Kong, people walk around with smiles after enjoying the japanese barbecue cuisine at Gyu-Kaku. The restaurant has more than 700 locations worldwide, each rooted in the belief that some of the strongest bonds between friends are forged at the dinner table. Groups dine on a huge variety of Japanese dishes, from popular meat and veggie dishes such as Harami Skirt Steak, Kalbi Short Rib, and Bacon-wrapped Asparagus - to unique Japanese-American appetizers such as the Spicy Tuna Volcano, Wasabi Crunchy Shrimp, and Ahi Tuna Poke. The real excitement takes place around individual grills, however, where diners can barbecue their own slabs of filet mignon, ahi tuna, or chicken with chili mayo until they are ideally tender or encircled by on-duty firemen.
In Gaucho Grill's kitchen, juicy steaks and marinated poultry sizzle on grills, sending the rich aroma of Argentine cuisine drifting through the restaurant's rustic interior. Savory mushrooms and veggies garnish meats on intimate lamp-lit tables surrounded by knotty timber walls, rough slate arches, and lariat-hurling ranchers. Dulcet treats of flan, mousse, and crepes cap South American feasts with notes of sweetness, and glasses of fruit-packed Argentine wines tastefully complement choice selections from the grill.
Saltwater Cowboy, touting diverse lunch and dinner menus, helps diners to corral runaway appetites with savory cuts of steak, delectable seafood platters, and a fully equipped raw bar. Afternoon munchers can adorn forks with the herbaceous trimmings of a steakhouse salad ($9) or opt to use the snug grip of newly installed cyborg thumbs by snagging a crab-cake sandwich ($10). Dinner fixin's arrive in the form of a Captain's platter ($17), which showcases shrimp or oysters fried to a crispy golden brown and accompanied by coleslaw, hushpuppies, and a choice of side. Barbecue baristas top mounds of toasted[sic] saffron orzo pasta with savory grilled swordfish ($18), and culinary stuntmen challenge the tectonic stability of dinnerware by plopping down an 18-ounce cowboy rib eye ($26) and attempting to free-climb its beefy façades.
Servers hoisting skewers circulate continuously through Samba Brazilian Steakhouse, pausing tableside to carve mesquite-grilled morsels of brazilian sausage, bacon-wrapped chicken, and sirloin steak. Clusters of mod white couches stand out against glowing orange walls, which contain plenty of nooks for groups to squeeze into. Brunch hours offer a consortium of all-you-can-eat meats such as marinated beef and pork. The main course is complemented by unlimited trips to the salad- and Brazilian side dish-buffet, as well as unlimited mimosas, champagne, and sangria. At night, meals are accompanied by live DJ sets or a chorus of smooth-limbed showgirls, who catalyze the party with a slight assist from the caipirinha bar's more than 20 versions of Brazil's national cocktail.
