An international restaurant gives people a taste of a country’s culture without making them memorize its national anthem only to then eat their own words. Teach taste buds a new tune with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a Brazilian dinner for two at Brazil Brazil Restaurant (up to a $94 total value). The dinner includes:
- Two glasses of house wine (up to a $9 value each)
- Two appetizers from a select menu (up to a $12 value each)
- Two entrees from a select menu (up to a $26 value each)<p>
The chefs at Brazil Brazil Restaurant prepare authentic Brazilian meat and seafood dishes in a warm, inviting setting with live music throughout the week. The luia appetizer piques taste centers with fried calamari served with a spicy marinara sauce, and the frango a passarinho illuminates morsels of marinated and fried chicken with garlic, white wine, and beer. Traditional entrees pack a kitchen’s worth of flavor into single plates such as Picanha na Chapa, grilled sirloin steak served with fried banana, or the feijoada stew’s black-bean base loaded with pork, dry beef, sausage, collard greens, and four chapters from Joy of Cooking. Sautéed whitefish drifts past banks of pureed yucca in the moqueca de peixe’s sea of fish broth and coconut milk. Though they are not included in today’s deal, bartenders refresh palates with traditional Brazilian drinks including caipirinha, a blend of sugar-cane rum and lime juice.
Tuesday–Saturday nights, Brazil Brazil’s warm red- and orange-accented walls resound with the florid rhythms of live Brazilian music. Guests tread the wood floors along the bar to sink into leather lounge chairs or scale tall bar seats and stare down liquor bottles until they start to muddle themselves into cocktails.
