Whereas the city's more traditional churrascarias emulate Rio-style clearinghouses, this new venture from the owners of Le Souk aspires to the chic modernity that has made São Paulo a dining destination. Bright orange walls emanate colonial cheeriness while curtains backed by amber lights lend a modern touch. Armless cracked leather chairs tuck into tables that, despite the room's modest size, are spread so far apart that heads of state could discuss Amazon strip-mining policies in total privacy. Those bent on sitting on the romantic back patio wait at the small stand-up bar and quaff a Brazilian Wax—pineapple juice with the leathery aftertaste of premium cachaça—or sweet, syrupy sangria, also cachaça-spiked. An all-you-can-eat rodizio yields tableside-carved strips of filet mignon; salty, blood-colored skirt steak that pops on first bite; garlic-seasoned chicken with crispy skin; and lamb chops that fatophiles may find a bit thin. No complaints, however, about the figures of the elaborately plumed Carnival dancers who occasionally make the rounds when samba interrupts the D.J.'s uptempo lounge beats—and grace Avenue B with yet another gift from the Marvelous City.Prix-Fixe
