Steak is the breakfast of champions, the lunch of kings, the dinner of industrial barons, and the dessert of T. rexes. Enjoy high-quality cuts regardless of social or philosophical status with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Brazilian cuisine Sunday–Thursday at Churrascaria Braza in Waterbury or Hartford.
Churrascaria Braza’s servers brandish steaming cuts of tender steak, juicy pork loin, and lamb onto the plates of carnivorous patrons. The fixed-price dinner ($31.95 for adults; $14.95 for children 11 and younger) begins with an unlimited buffet loaded with fresh salads, shrimp, roasted vegetables, and appetizers, sating cravings for variety as effectively as a 564-pack of edible Crayolas. After the initial course, guests flip a two-sided chip to signal wait staff to initiate a parade of 12 different meats slow-roasted over an open flame, including tender filet mignon medallions wrapped in crispy bacon, parmesan-crusted pork loin, and leg of lamb, complemented by a selection of salsas.
Keep taste buds entertained between protein courses with sides of doughy Brazilian cheese bread, black beans and rice, and sweet fried plantains. Any stomach space left untested can be remedied by desserts such as warm chocolate buñuelos ($7), chocolate-filled pastries covered in cinnamon sugar with dulce de leche sauce, and creamy flan with caramel sauce ($6), filling postdinner naps with sweet dreams of galloping through the pork-rib forests of the Brazilian countryside.
