A high-protein diet can help to 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 toward Brazilian-steakhouse dinner and drinks for two people at Nelore Churrascaria in Winter Park.
The meat-dispatchers at Nelore Steakhouse transport 15 different cuts of beef, chicken, lamb, and pork to vacant plates and mouths straight off the skewer. Sit back at this gaucho-style steakhouse and let protein-packing servers slice off meats such as leg of lamb, rump roast, and bacon-wrapped filet mignon. Like an epic game of meat dodgeball, tender, juicy roasts sail across diners' plates until they bow to the meat gods in reverent defeat and toast them with a variety of South American wines. Finish this meatsperience with one of Nelore's delectable desserts, such as the Brigadeiro, a Brazilian chocolate truffle rolled in chocolate and served with berries.
A lonely fire flickers in the night, punctuating the vast expanse of Brazil’s southern plains. A spitted side of Nelore beef roasts over the flames; from that famed beast and this timeless fireside scene, Nelore Churrascaria takes its name, recipes, and spirit.
Nelore Churrascaria’s chefs draw inspiration from the gauchos of South America, piling plates high with carvings of 15 spit-roasted meats. The spirit of the southern plains remains alive and well in the dining room, where wrought-iron chandeliers and a dark hardwood floor evoke rustic elegance as a warm breeze filters in through the front doors. Veggies, fine cheeses, and pastas fill more than 40 basins at the salad bar, whose glistening glass protects the trays from grazing cattle and errant horseshoe tosses.
