The Churrasco (Portuguese for barbecue) is born from the Gauchos (Brazilian cowboys) of the 1700’s, who would skewer the finest meats and poultry and cook them with just a few simple seasonings over an open-flame. Over time the Churrasco evolved into the Churrascaria – a modern celebration of food where Gauchos serve by parading these succulent cuts and slicing them fresh and hot in a service style called Rodizio.
Ipanema Brazilian Steak House is a Churrascaria in the finest sense of the word. Our twelve authentic cuts and presentations of meat are seasoned with salt and roasted rotisserie-style over natural wood imported from Brazil, basted continuously by their own natural juices. Served by traditional roving Gauchos, they are complemented by an opulent salad and vegetable bar, delectable desserts and delicious wines, beers and cocktails.
Manage your Rodizio by displaying the yellow/green disk at the end of your table to advise the Gauchos of your current preference: Yellow signals to the Gauchos that you are ready for new mouth-watering cuts. Red indicates that you are resting or full. Ipanema Brazilian Steak House – Indulgences of the senses.
