Roasting meat reveals its true flavors, just as roasting comedians reveals it’s impossible to tell a good joke about meat. Stab a no-nonsense steak with today’s Groupon: for $48, you get an all-you-can-eat dinner for two at Brazzaz (a $96 value). Choose from the following options:
- Dinner Sunday–Thursday
- Dinner Friday and Saturday<p>
Brazzaz’s attentive passadores, or carvers, whisk hearty cuts of churrascaria-style, slow-roasted meats to tables draped in white as diners take their pick of the Brazilian grill’s goods. The salad bar tempts guests with an overflow of fresh produce, seafood, and sushi; calamari and crab mingle with a wild-mushroom-and-truffle risotto, whereas imported cheeses swap postcards with traditional Brazilian black beans and rice. More than a dozen types of meat grace Brazzaz’s spits, including filet mignon medallions wrapped in bacon, whole legs of lamb in a house marinade, and garlic beef coulettes. Shrimp march down skewers onto waiting plates, whereas whole-roasted pineapples treat tongues to the smoky, caramel flavors of a pineapple trapped in a burning caramel factory. As diners linger beneath geometric pendant lamps in the sophisticated dining room, servers continue to slice requested portions from their skewers, fueling thoughtful conversation and lively debates about where meat comes from.
Rather than stay cooped up the kitchen, Brazzaz's gaucho chefs make forays into the dining area to carve portions of their 18 churrascaria-style, fire-roasted meats for guests. As customers lounge beneath geometric pendant lamps, they can take their pick of Brazilian bites, from succulent slices of tenderloin medallions wrapped in bacon to whole legs of lamb marinated in a secret blend of ingredients. In addition to devouring the all-you-can-eat meats, diners can pair their entrees with selections from the gourmet salad and sides bar, which stocks more than 60 items of seafood, imported cheese, cured meat, and fresh-cut vegetables. After dinner, sweet teeth sink into freshly crafted desserts, which may be purchased for an additional cost and run the gamut from Brazilian flan to chocolate mousse topped with homemade whipped cream. Throughout each feast, bartenders can help wash down bites by whipping up cocktails or pouring selections from a sommelier-selected, 150-item wine list, which focuses on vineyards in the Americas from California to the Little California districts in major cities.
