  • Taurinus
    Taurinus Brazilian Steakhouse combines the flavors of outdoor campfire cooking with the comfort of an indoor dining room. The restaurant takes its inspiration from the churrasco cooking style of southern Brazil's gauchos, who would gather after long days of ranch work and sear sizable cuts of beef above a roaring fire pit. At Taurinus Brazilian Steakhouse, the pit is replaced by a grill, although smoldering mesquite charcoal still lends a smoky flavor to the meats while sealing in the succulent juices. Servers wander the dining room carrying skewers of more than a dozen different meats, stopping to carve cuts of pork loin, leg of lamb, and bacon-wrapped filet mignon tableside. To let servers know to hold off on the all-you-can-eat servings of meats, diners flip a card from green to red. This break also provides an opportunity to peruse the salad bar's selection of crisp vegetables, imported cheeses, and hot side dishes. Meanwhile, diners can refresh their palates with a slew of drinks, including beer, sangria, and caipirinhas?Brazil's iconic cocktail. The steak house even features a number of international wines stored in a walk-in, climate-controlled cellar that extends all the way to Brazil.

  • Samba Rock Acai Cafe
    When owners Vanessa and Ron Wilkerson were opening Samba Rock Acai Café, they encountered many roadblocks along the way. For instance, the city assessed there would be a $30,000 traffic-impact fee for their restaurant. So the duo improvised. They built an indoor bike parking area, reducing the fee while still providing customers a place to park their wheels. This is just one example in which Ron has defied what some might see as a career-ending set-back. In 1988, the former professional BMX Freestyle rider fell into a coma after failing to land a no-hander, no-footer trick on his bike. Though some might have given up after a life-threatening experience like that—he suffered short-term memory loss and even forgot some of the BMX tricks that he had pioneered—Ron got back on his bike. And if he hadn’t, he would never have traveled to Sao Paolo, Brazil, met Vanessa, married her, or opened Samba Rock Acai Café. The menu at Samba Rock Acai Café pays homage to the country where the Wilkersons met and where Vanessa grew up. Blended Brazilian berries and mix-ins, such as bananas and peanut butter, make up the base for their acai bowls. They crown this base with toppings such as fresh fruit, avocado, coconut cream, and granola. Their smoothies also feature acai, as well as organic ingredients, which have never been tainted by spray tanners to look more appealing to customers. To round out their South American-inspired menu, they serve yerba mate—steeped leaves of the mate plant—with acai to sweeten each sip.
