All You Can Meat

Estilo Gaucho, the next great Brazilian steakhouse


Green is good.

And for once, we're not talking eco-friendly, earth-hugging green, either.

We're talking a green that gets you more red -- the succulent, tender, fresh-from-the-fire reds of Brazilian meat.

If you're familiar with Brazilian steakhouses, then you know the magic of the stop/go sign, the tiny marker signaling the gauchos to keep the meat a-comin'. (Green = more, more, more; Red = momentary pause for chewing.)

At the new Estilo Gaucho Brazilian Steakhouse, they're serving spicy picanha prime-cut top sirloin (above), bacon-wrapped chicken, pork sausage, filet mignon, beer-marinated chicken thighs, beef ribs and leg of lamb, just to name seven of their 15 meats.

There's also a 40-item salad bar, but only amateurs fill up on vegetables (like us our first three times we did Brazilian BBQ).

Instead, save that stomach space for a couple caipirinhas, Brazil's national cocktail made from sugar cane liquor (cachaça), sugar and lime.

The icy treats come out green, so you'll want to keep those coming, too.
