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. That translates into Brazilian gauchos roaming the restaurant with huge skewers of meat, making sure your plate is never empty. So bring your appetite and indulge in more than a dozen types of meat (from filet mignon to sausage and duck) tableside. The house specialty is picanha, a tender rump roast. 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. Leave your table to at least check out the admirable salad bar, which is stocked with antipasti, marinated shiitake mushrooms, smoked salmon, imported cheese and mashed potatoes. It’s hard to leave room for dessert, but those choices seem endless, too. Consider the caramel turtle cheesecake, chocolate mousse, crème brûlée, Key lime pie or Brazilian flan.
