Boi Na Braza Restaurant Review: Meat and plenty of it is the main attraction at Boi Na Braza, on the ground level of the 49-story Carew Tower in the heart of downtown. The restaurant's name means "steer over embers" in Portuguese, and that translates into Brazilian gauchos roaming the place with huge skewers of meat, making sure your plate is never empty. If you overindulge at the extensive salad bar (antipasti, marinated shiitake mushrooms, smoked salmon, imported cheeses and mashed potatoes), you might be too full for the main attraction, so plan accordingly. The house specialty is picanha, a tender rump roast, but the choices keep coming, as servers display lamb chops, pork ribs, chicken breasts and more. As long as you keep your dining card flipped to green, your plate will be filled. Turn the card over to the red side, and the servers will leave you alone to enjoy the mounds of meat. For dessert, consider the caramel turtle cheesecake, chocolate mousse, crème brûlée, Key lime pie or Brazilian flan.
