Without steak, most Americans wouldn’t be able to justify owning such terrifyingly sharp steak knives, much less an entire rack of steak guns. Today's deal gives you a chance to use them: for $25, you get $50 (or $60 if redeemed Sunday–Thursday) worth of Brazilian fare and beverages at Churrascaria Braza.
An unlimited parade of palate-pleasing platters greets diners from Churrascaria Braza's Rodizio prix fixe dinner menu, a tasty Brazilian steakhouse tradition ($29.95 adults, $14.95 children under 12). Fill your digestive Trapper Keeper with loose-leaf lusciousness from the stacked salad bar, or cast a tongue trap to reel in a haul of the peel-and-eat shrimp. When you're sufficiently appetized, a friendly tableside server commences the main protein procession, carefully and continuously slicing as much of the seasoned, slow-roasted, and skewered meats as you desire. The assortment of 12 meats changes nightly, yielding such savory selections as the roasted pork loin, bacon-wrapped filet mignon, or Perna de Carneiro (freshly sliced leg of lamb). When you're nearly full, flip the table's circular dual-sided chip from green to red, which signifies the start of dessert. Hang a sweet fang on the decadent layer cake ($7) or spongy and succulent tres leches cake ($7).
Bright neon and classic architecture welcome diners to Churrascaria Braza's winsome dining domicile. Yellow- and orange-hued walls encase steak fans in warm, welcoming noshing quarters, accentuated by pleasant décor and an attentive staff.
The Hartford Advocate named Churrascaria Braza Best Brazilian Restaurant, and it is Zagat reviewed. Although some Yahoo! Locals and Yelpers have varying opinions, giving Churrascaria Braza a three-star average, more than 75% of Urbanspooners like it.
- A carnivore's delight - no vegetarians allowed! Be careful not to overload at the salad bar to make room for all slabs of meat. Service is quick and can be overwhelming when they bombard you with all your choices. – CHedstrom1977, Zagat
- Eat, Eat, Eat: If you plan on going to Braza, don't eat lunch that day. You will be stuffed with all the yummy food they have to offer. The atmosphere is electric. The food eclectic. – Betty, Yahoo! Local
