Inspired by Brazilian gaucho—or cowboy—style of cooking meats, the owners and chefs of Brazaviva Churrascaria opened their restaurant and devoted its menu of endless dishes to the Old-World grilling method. As the restaurant describes it, the wayfaring gauchos roamed the expansive grasslands of Brazil's Rio Grande do Sul, skewering their meat dinners and roasting them over a fiery pit, before carving off thin slices to be shared around the fire.
Holding true to that tradition, the eatery's expert carvers bring skewers of fire-roasted beef, pork, lamb, chicken, and sausage tableside to pile plates high. Guests eat as much as they like, using a card that is green on one side and red on the other to indicate to the friendly staff carvers to keep the feast flowing, or to take a moment's savoring pause. Whatever belly room is left over after all cards go red calls for filling up with one of the eatery's unique desserts that swirl South American flavors such as passion fruit and papaya into rich smoothies and mousses. A collection of fine wines selected specially to compliment the charred flavors of the meats is available to complete the experience.

After a long day on the pampas, there's nothing a gaucho wants more than a tender cut of picanha and a glass of wine. At Steak Brasil, diners can enjoy a slice of that traditional cowboy lifestyle even if their bolas skills are middling at best. From the moment they sit down, diners are treated to a parade of the finest beef, chicken, pork, and lamb Brazil has to offer—at least until they flip the card on the table from the green of "keep it coming" to the red of "I'm stuffed." Nearby, the buffet stands ready with sides such as rice, black beans, bananas à milanesa, and traditional cheese bread, all included in the price of the all-you-can-eat churrascaria-style dinner. For an extra price, visitors can enjoy specialty desserts and some of the restaurant's fine South American wines.

With her breezy Miami cucina, she pays homage to her roots with a mixed menu of Brazilian and Italian specialties. Small, easy-to-share plates, including sandwiches and pizzas, dominate the menu. But large plates topple appetites, too, with offerings of braised short ribs and seared salmon. The cucina's bright ambiance only adds to visits, surrounding guests with clean, modern decor, exposed brick walls, and wood accents.
