Meat, the handsomest of the nine food groups, gets its good looks from spice rubs, tenderizers, and long soaks in anti-aging marinades. Ogle seductive slabs with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Brazilian steakhouse fare and drinks at Espeto, in Avondale.
Delivering a Brazilian spin on traditional steakhouse eats, Espeto’s roving waiters tote hefty skewers of flame-grilled meats to tables and carve fresh forkfuls directly onto diners' plates. The fixed-price menu ($39 for adults) spins a carnivorous kaleidoscope of 14 choices, such as rotisserie top sirloin, leg of lamb, chicken breast with bacon, and salmon. Dinner also welcomes guests to a hot-and-cold salad bar, overflowing with vitamin-packed ground growers too delicate for piercing. À la carte opportunities abound, such as hearty heapings of filet mignon ($27.99) and pork loin ($19.99). Espeto’s whistle-whetting wines and libations help patrons avoid wringing lamb chops for liquid refreshment to sip while contemplating the eatery's artistic renderings of Brazilian cowboy ranges.
