A high-protein diet can help build muscle, which comes in handy for fighting off a shark that is also on a high-protein diet. Take a bite out of the circle of life with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Brazilian steakhouse fare at Churrascaria Rodeo in Woburn.
Churrascaria Rodeo entices meat eaters with dozens of cuts culled straight off the barbecue spit for a piping hot, Brazilian-style feast. This lively eatery’s menu peppers its proteins with a selection of fresh seafood and vegetarian-friendly sides; however, the main event remains the full-service Rodizio—a Brazilian barbecue meal ($16.95/lunch, $22.95/dinner). Friendly servers carve succulent slices of beef sirloin, lamb, pork loin, or one of four other meats onto your plate until pure willpower or the concerned urgings of a friend brings an end to your torrid kielbasa love affair. Homemade caramel custard and tiramisu tempt exhausted taste buds from hibernation, rejuvenating palates with a sweet aftertaste to complement the saucy, barbecued beforetaste.
Dinner at Brazilian Steakhouse is a prix-fixe feast: all-you-can-eat portions of bacon-wrapped filet mignon, leg of lamb, and parmesan pork loin reside next to broccoli rabe sautéed with shallots and white wine. More than 70 wines complement these massive meals, including champagnes that sparkle in the light from the dining room's patterned window screens. Diners can ask for wine recommendations from the restaurant's attentive waiters, whose excellent service garnered the steak house a Diners' Choice Award in 2012 and a high-five from Transylvanians who made special requests because of their garlic "allergies."
