You could argue that every meal at Gaucho's Village includes live entertainment—servers are constantly visiting tables with humongous skewers of meat and slicing off choice pieces with a sword-like knife. To summon such a show to your table, all you need to do is turn a small marker over to display its green side, or turn your "Bring on the Meat" t-shirt right-side out. Then, you select from an array of flame-roasted cuts, ranging from the traditional picanha, or sirloin cap, to tri-tip and filet mignon wrapped in bacon. The blazing churrasco fires backstage also cook lamb, pork, and sausage, and the menu suggests a proper wine pairing for each cut.
Though these meats have been featured on the Travel Channel's Tastiest Places to Chow Down, they aren't the only impressive spectacle at the restaurant. The real show occurs on weekends, when samba dancers and DJs rev up the always-festive atmosphere. Guests who would rather kick back than shimmy along can visit the attached lounge. There, a separate lounge menu boasts empanadas and coxinha—fried balls of chicken and cheese—as well as flavored hookah on a back patio fenced with live bamboo.

The Three Faces of M Grill
Centuries ago, formally dressed gauchos—or, Brazilian cowboys—conducted festive fireside roasts, during which they'd use their swords to serve grilled meats to their guests. Today, this tradition carries on at M Grill, an authentic churrascaria restaurant. Here, expert waiters present freshly grilled and skewered meats tableside, slicing off portions for diners while it's still hot.
All-You-Can-Eat Meat (and More)
Upon arriving at M Grill, you needn't scan dozens of menu items to decide what to order. Instead, you pay a set price and eat to your heart's content. All you have to do is flip a card: the green side tells the waiter to keep the meat coming, and the red side indicates you're stuffed with enough protein to bench-press your date. The set price also includes M Grill's expansive salad bar, which is stocked with all sorts of fresh veggies and cheeses, as well as a hot buffet with fried yucca, beef stroganoff, and fried plantains.
In addition to skewers of meat, the restaurant also houses an impressive wine wall stocked with more than 1,500 bottles. But cocktails here are taken seriously, too. For its passionfruit caipirinha, for instance, M Grill buys passionfruit
at the pinnacle of its freshness, then freezes it to use throughout the year. Recently, CBS Los Angeles also recognized the eatery's pisco sour cocktail as one of the best in the city for its frothy egg whites and hand-squeezed lime juice.
