I go here everytime my family visits NYC and it is by far the best Brazilian restaurant in town. The concept is so much fun and you can't find anything like this outside of the city. If I could, I would eat there EVERYDAY!!! The best meat is the flank steak and the picanha. I could even go there just to eat what they have at the salad bar. So many sushi choices and nice hot brazilian dishes =D its a win!

This restaurant should be on everyone's list of things they would like to do before they die! If there is one restaurant in the City that is a must-go-to just once, this is it! But I want to live there! Hah! The food is great, the service is great, and you can't help but have a fun time with all those waiters circling like 747s in holding patterns over JFK!

A MOVABLE FEAST

I am vegetarian.My companion is a meat eater , However, I do not cook meats at home , It is a real treat for us when we go. Actually tomorrow with a group of 12. The manager is friendly (and handsome) . No matter how stuffed you are the grilled cheese squares are delicious .A must try. If you dislike a steak house that smells like meat as I do. You will not be bothered by the smells of meat. It is clean and the many, many waiters are more like performers, It is truly a movable feast. Judi Jones

For This, Gluttony is Not a Sin

I'm getting teary-eyed just thinking about it. What a concept! You sit still, and people bring food...correction, MEAT...right to your table and cut it onto your plate. I think heaven must be something like this. My only caveat: be very selective at the salad bar. It's CP's transparent attempt to load you up on cheap food so you have less room in your stomach for the luscious meats. Don't be fooled! Trust me, you want to be able to enjoy each and every cut brought to your table. Fast the day before and enjoy!

Go hungry. Once your trip to the salad bar has ended, they never stop bringing the food. Overkill but a fun time can be had by all. The meats are excellent, carved at your table. Desserts, also winners.

RUSH RUSH for The Theater

How do you say RUSH in Portugeese? One of the best Brazilian Rodizios in North America, this fairly attractive room manages to not only serve well prepared food but also makes your experience elegant. The good looking Brazilian staff don't hurt either . Still with a total cost of some $70 with a few drinks, one wonders why they were force fed an entire steer in les than 30 minutes - pergaps so the next pary can be force feed another steer so they can all make it t the theater on time. Still, they manage to do what other restaurants can't - feed you , make you feel somehow part of the scene and into your theater seat with some thrty minutes to spare. Just don't stop for air or you may loose your table.

Excellent food, service & atmosphere. This excellent restaurant offers many different meats for the rodizio. If your a vegetarian they offer a separate menu as well. I strongly recommend this restaurant. while your waiting for your rodizio to start they offer an excellent choice of different food in the huge salad bar. and don't forget to munch down on the cheesebread as you wait for your dinner & while eating dinner too.

It is so wonderful to find a New York City restaurant that is unique.

The hospitality is warm and extremely comfortable. The food, decor, and service is unique for the City. The wait staff, host, etc. make you feel as though you are family. We are bringing all our children there to celebrate our son's (their Daddy's) birthday. The grandchildren will feel welcome and very comfortable there.
