$30 for a Wine Tasting and Food Pairing for Two ($60 Value)

On Wednesday nights, wine expert Frank Reider, author of Wines of Passion, descends to Gol!'s wine cellar and hand-picks four wines that complement and accentuate Latin appetizers. Though the combinations vary, past pairings have included chardonnay with calamari, malbec with sirloin steak, and cabernet sauvignon with grilled chicken.

Gol! The Taste of Brazil

Restaurateur Frank Reider began to delve into the ruby depths of wine at his friend's wine soirees while living in Rio de Janeiro. His growing ardor for South American vintages inspired him to open Gol!, a churrascaria with a wine list that earned the restaurant Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence for several years.

Gaucho waiters arrive at each chair offering up skewers of shrimp, salmon, and meat grilled rare in the traditional style. Patrons flip a disk between red and green to indicate whether they'd like more meat or to clear up traffic jams among the waitstaff. A salad bar remains stocked with fresh vegetables and soups as an alternative to the traditional barrage of meat.

Reider found a home for Gol! in a building erected circa 1925. It was originally dubbed the Arcade Building, gaining notoriety in the 1930s as the Arcade and Tap Room. Behind the fully restored façade, cypress-wood ceilings arch over tablecloths and floral displays. Bartenders work behind a bar carved in 1933 from trees whose grandparents were chopped down by George Washington himself. As bossa nova tunes play, the bartenders mix cocktails such as the citrusy caipirinha, which was featured in the Palm Beach Post.

great experience
SHEIK · April 29, 2013
Overall was good. A little expensive. Limited wine list. Service very good. For the price I thought the salad bar could've given more to choose from.

Excellent place to go if you like to try new things. The hooka and belley dancers were great fun!
