Brazilian Steakhouses in Somerville

The layout of Rio Rodizio is telling: with a candlelit dining area in one section and a long bar lined with flat screens in another, it's as much a place to take a date for a romantic meal as it is a spot to grab a drink after work. In the dining room, gaucho chefs carve cuts of lamb, beef, and pork right at the table, forcing diners to clear plate space next to seared fish, homemade pastas, and sushi rolls drizzled in flavorful sauce. Like a home that's been decorated by robbing a furniture store in the dark, the cocktail menu is a fusion of tastes, its Asian and Brazilian proclivities represented by sangrias, tropical juices, and sake.

Diners recline on the aged-black-leather chairs at Christie's Steakhouse, sipping martinis as they watch as they watch international travelers drift in and out of the Crowne Plaza hotel. Servers emerge from the kitchen, nimbly juggling plates of Black Angus steaks, fresh seafood dishes, and artisanal pizzas. They set plates down on linen-clad tabletops, their faces illuminated in the glow of soft hanging lights and five glimmering widescreen TVs.

Arirang Hibachi Steakhouse and Sushi Bar's hibachi chefs pull double duty, acting as entertainers in addition to grillmasters. They captivate large groups of diners with whirling knifework, dynamic spatula twirls, and the occasional spout of flame at tableside hibachi grills, flipping hot portions of lobster and chicken directly onto waiting plates. Behind the bamboo-finished bar, the sushi chefs move more slowly as they carefully seal colorful combinations of veggies, seafood, and vinegar-anointed rice within sheets of delicate seaweed. Like a poltergeist beauty pageant, not all of the talent is visible to the eye—the culinary team makes some of the restaurant's most exotic dishes, such as kobe beef sliders and wasabi-crusted filet mignon, behind the closed doors of the kitchen.

Classics never go out of style, a truth that is both known and celebrated at Sweet Waters Steak House. Here, iconic American dishes showcase the menu?s combinations of comforting flavors. Chefs line the grill with as many as seven cuts of steak, including dry-aged sirloins and certified Angus strip steaks. Roasted organic chicken breast, pan-seared Norwegian salmon, and caramelized French onion soup serve as upscale takes on steak-house traditions.

With its dark wooden wainscoting, gilt-framed paintings, and green leather furniture, the restaurant?s d?cor mirrors the classical elegance of its menu. Crisp white linens adorn each table, catching the small bits of light cast by the dining room?s softly glowing lamps.

Q&A with Michael Steinberg, Chef/owner

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?

Steaks, seafood, pasta, chicken, wood-fired brick-oven pizza

Do you adhere to any sustainable or eco-friendly practices?

We use a local butcher who has been in the same town for 100 years. The chef goes to Fulton Fish market in NYC and picks his seafood. We use all-organic veggies. Fresh, fresh, fresh is what we do.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We do any type of parties.
