In parts of Brazil, families and friends come together during a centuries-old tradition called churrasco. At these festive barbecue-style gatherings, hosts cook enormous amounts of food, and guests eat until they're stuffed. Inspired by that tradition, Elaine Lima opened Brazil Grill with a similar vision in mind. Here, the grill runs all day, rolling out an assortment of juicy meats that includes pork loin, ribs, lamb, and top sirloin presented in a colorful buffet alongside vegetables and other Brazilian-style sides. It's a simple setup that makes guests feel as at home as they would at their own friend's barbecue.
The recipes used in the kitchen at Ipanema Cafe are the creation of Chef Nelson Diorio, whose skills were honed at the Quinnipiac Culinary Arts School. The bar and restaurant serves patrons classic Brazilian and Portuguese dishes, such as hearty stews, bowls of soup, and fish galore.
Yolande Lacan grew up surrounded by great French cuisine. Her father, Noel, was a gourmet French chef. As a child, her family lived in an inn that featured a handful of restaurants—one that specialized in old-world French food and another that served sweet and savory crepes. When Lacan found that New Haven lacked an inviting corner bistro with good onion soup, escargot, and steak tartare, she took it upon herself in the fall of 2012 to open Yolande's Bistro and Creperie, which incorporates all of these staples of French cuisine.
Lacan and her cook Stephanie aim to create traditional French cuisine that is “not too fancy or intimidating,” such as frog legs Provençale and duck leg confit. In addition, Lacan folds imported cheeses and salmon into gluten-free buckwheat and oat-flour crepes, and chops champagne bottles open with a saber. Dinner and brunch feature plates that are a touch fancier than the average cafe, while lunch features casual French-inspired fare such as cracked-pepper burgers and bistro beef sandwiches.
At iD Brazil Churrascaria and Restaurant, servers arrive at tables with giant skewers bearing perfectly grilled, aromatic meats.

The South American steakhouse also offers a vast buffet, as well as traditional drinks, such as the Caipririnha, a blend of muddled limes, cachaca, and sugar.
