Beneath softly lit chandeliers, Chama Grill's gaucho chefs navigate tables piled with fried bananas and other Brazilian sides, whisking cuts of fire-roasted meats to diners. They hand-carve lightly seasoned top sirloin, brazilian pork sausage, bacon-wrapped filet mignon, and more—and the meat keeps coming whenever diners flip their table cards to indicate they want more. This rodízio style of dining is native to Brazil, as is the churrasco cooking method the chefs employ: All the meat is seasoned, skewered, and slow-cooked over the fire or a sleeping dragon's nose.
The chefs also make their own pasta for a selection of Italian dishes, including handmade jumbo lobster ravioli drowned in a light cream-saffron sauce. In-house wine connoisseurs recommend the best pairings for a certain meat or a diner's zodiac sign from the international wine list, which includes bottles from Chile, Argentina, Europe, and the United States.
