A new meating place

If you put "sumptuous" in your description of food, you have my attention. Let's analyze that word for a second:

Of a size or splendor suggesting great expense; lavish

Say it. Your mouth forms a sultry pout, doesn't it?! For me, the term evokes images of beautiful, sexy foodies around a table of exquisite food, enjoying course after course of fabulous food with wine.

Well, the word appears in an advertisement for
Boi Na Braza Churrascaria. I'm highly-suggestible when it comes to marketing (especially food) so I have to go, especially since they're throwing around the "s" word. They are supposed to open in Carew Tower (441 Vine Street, call 513-421-7111 for more info) "May 2007," although I'm not quite sure if that means May 1 or May 31. I'll have to ask Polly...

This type of restaurant has been trendy for the last few years. I've been to other Brazilian steak houses, also known as all-you-can-eat meat fests, and they were pretty darn good. So it will be interesting to see how this one is. I think it's more about the crowd you're with at places like this.

What do you guys think about the meat-on-a-sword trend? Been to
Amor de Brazil, the Brazilian steak house in Mason? Do you like the concept of such places, or are you thinking "Não mais!"?

Ok, so my curiosity is piqued. I need to try the place in Mason. I've always had a preconceived notion that these Brazilian Steakhouses are a bit of a "theme" concept. Out in the western U.S. these places are all over...waitstaff dressed in traditional "gaucho" outfits, hunks of beef carried around on swords, etc.

So maybe after a great workout, I might be ready to flirt with that fine line between sumptuous, and gluttonous. ;-)

Truthfully, I can do without the gaucho culture...
Never have been a real fan of gauchos...

Never have been a real fan of gauchos... So, seeing them in a restaurant: ba bye...
