Steaks, along with black coffee, entire pies, and eau de lawnmower, are an essential part of the 1950s Tough Gent's Diet Plan. Give your film noir feast a little Brazilian color with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 towards a rodizio-style meal at Oliveira’s Steakhouse. Choose from their locations in Peabody, East Boston, and Woburn. Oliveira’s Brazilian-style steakhouse serves a dozen different meats in rodizio fashion ($24.99 per person), with waiters carrying meats from table to table on skewers and doling out in unlimited savory refills. Meats may also be paired with a salad bar in case you want to give the animal-slabs in your stomach a lush jungle to play in.
At each of Oliveira's Steakhouse four locations, the crackling sizzle of roasting meat ring’s out like a starter’s pistol, signaling the beginning of Brazilian-style churrasco feasts. Weaving between tables, servers garbed in black shirts and scarlet neckerchiefs trot out flame-kissed chicken, pork, sausage, and rodízio steak presented upon a meat-laden short sword suitable for speedy delivery or elevating a busboy to knighthood. A salad bar supplements meaty mouthfuls with plates of leafy greens, rice, beans, and sauce-laden noodles.
