Braseiro da Gávea
Here you’ll find all manner of steaks and chops, sides and beverages, but if you’re looking for the ultimate Brazilian cut, ask for a “picanha ao braseiro,” a two-person portion, seared on both sides in its own juices (let them know if you need it more well-done). It comes with fried potatoes (best served “à portuguesa,” i.e., round and crunchy), broccoli-rice salad and farofa (manioc meal) plus bananas and a (you guessed it) fried egg. It’s the kind of celebration that calls for free-flowing beer. Even when you’re satiated, leave room for dessert: fried plantain and sweet-cream ice. Look around to see the line is as long as when you arrived—now it all makes sense.
