Chima Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: A prime example of Brazilian rodizio (barbecue), worth the literal and metaphorical salt, Chima is named for chimarrĂ¢o, a national drink that symbolizes hospitality and friendship. Likewise Chima, with its multiple dining rooms and settings, including a patio, is very welcoming. Servers are quick to plop some traditional cheese rolls down on the table and direct diners to the gazillion-item salad bar. Tempting though it is, go easy on the prosciutto, hearts of palm salad and feijoada (black bean stew) with farofa (toasted cassava flour) you find there---the dozen cuts of meat and poultry that are paraded around the dining room on skewers are truly worth your attention. Seasoned and roasted, such items as pork loin, rack of lamb and filet mignon, of which you can eat unlimited quantities for the set price, are sliced to order on your plate until you say nay. Of less interest are side dishes such as pallid creamed spinach, and desserts are clearly an afterthought. But for those of carnivorous intent and prodigious appetite, Chima is a treat.
