Joy can often be found in unlikely pairings, such as enjoying a Brazilian atmosphere in a North American restaurant or screening The Odd Couple for conventional triplets. Experience the unexpected with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale Brazilian cuisine at Carnaval Brazilian Grill in Sioux Falls.
The meat maestros at Carnaval—the only steakhouse of its kind in South Dakota—infuse cuts of Great Plains beef with South American vim and vigor in a festive atmosphere. Carnaval’s kitchen cowboys quarterback a menu of juicy rib eyes, tenderloins, and porterhouses served with a trio of sauces ($27.95–$36.25). Introduce palates to inspired entrees such as brazilian coconut chicken ($16.25), passion fruit-glazed pork chops ($18.95), or Carnaval fish stew, a poached fish-of-the-day frolicking in sweet tomato-coconut broth with shrimp, sweet peppers, and ginger ($28.95). Carnaval's wait-staff wizards can help pair plates with a signature cocktail, one of more than 140 wines, or a uvula that enjoys long walks on the beach.
The restaurant's elegant atmosphere features vaulted ceilings and intimate lighting. Diners can admire the vibrant Brazilian artwork on the walls or plot a safari through the abundant foliage adorning the spacious dining room. Beginning in spring, Carnaval Brazilian Grill will entertain guests with acrobatic breezes on the outdoor patio in addition to frequently scheduled live music on the weekends.
