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. This is hardly an unusual sight at Brazil's famous all-you-can-eat churrascarias?until you see the ocean views through the 180-degree wall of glass in Samba Brazilian Steakhouse's Redondo dining room. This chic perspective on tropicalia dominates all aspects of the steakhouse. 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 your choice of mimosas, champagne, and sangria. On Thursday?Saturday, a chorus of smooth-limbed showgirls catalyze the party with a slight assist from the caipirinha bar's more than 20 versions of Brazil's national cocktail.
Tropical fruits and veggies comprise the majority of drinks and dishes at Natureba Juice Bar, a Brazilian juice bar that specializes in blended beverages. In addition to whirling fruits such as guava, coconut, and mango for more than 30 signature smoothies, juice-makers plunder produce stores for custom drinks and a?a? bowls. Savory baked specialties include pastries and tapioca cr?pes, each stuffed with a choice of cheeses and meats, as well as salads and sandwiches with ingredients such as sundried tomatoes and hearts of palm. The cozy dining room's walls wear neon green and bright orange.
Warning: sitting on the patio at the Silvio's Brazilian Beach BBQ may result in getting misted with ocean spray, hearing the sound of waves lapping along the beach, and getting a nice suntan. The gorgeous pier-side location is hardly Silvio's only distinctive quality, though. The restaurant compliments the picturesque views with equally engaging dishes, such as ceviche made with seasonal white fish, Mississippi pulled pork sandwiches, and their famous carnaval plates?sharable platters for two heaped with morsels of barbecue chicken and tri-tip steak, calabreza ipanema salad, vinagretti, and flame-licked veggie skewers. All the while, guests can joyously clink glasses of on-tap craft beers or classic Brazilian cocktails.
