A diet rich in protein is essential for maintaining cell growth, stimulating weight loss, and creating enough DNA to back up your genomes on external hard drives. Have an edible backup plan with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Brazilian churrasco fare during dinner at Grimpa Steakhouse.
Grimpa Steakhouse's opus is an orchestra of grilled meats and seafood prepared churrasco-style, a method imported straight from the pampas in south Brazil. Diners embark on an all-you-can-eat rodizio-style adventure ($43.95) as gracious gauchos roam the restaurant, dishing up thick cuts of select meats, including prime sirloin, leg of lamb, pork loin, salmon, and boneless chicken, sliced from just-grilled skewers. Punctuate the meaty feast with trips to the salad bar, populated with veggies, fruits, and antipasto, as well as a cadre of hot sides, including french fries and breaded bananas. The à la carte menu dispatches filet mignon on a flotilla of mushroom sauce and mashed potatoes ($27.95), as pastry-cloaked salmon and squash mount an offensive on hunger ($28.95).
The restaurant's enclave sprawls over three indoor dining areas with bright lighting, light-colored walls, and ceilings high enough to thank the gauchos with a human pyramid. The lush greenery surrounding the outdoor patio shades diners during day to support its stand-up comedy career at night.
Grimpa Brazilian Steakhouse
Waiters whirl through Grimpa Brazilian Steakhouse's streamlined interior, dancing with swords that skewer more than 15 kinds of meat. Diners can sample steaks and an 18-item salad bar and hot buffet in the art-strewn dining room or on the outdoor patio, where swaying palms and ghost cowboys bring to mind traditional gaucho camps. An onsite wine cellar accommodates international vintages of red, white, and bubbly, and an à la carte menu allows chefs to pair tender cuts of beef and fish with gourmet sauces and sides.
