Churrascos Restaurant Review

: The original outpost of the Michael Cordúa empire has a modern, classy feel and boasts a small patio for outdoor dining. The signature dish is the churrasco, a charcoal-grilled center-cut beef tenderloin steak, butterflied in jelly-roll fashion and basted with chimichurri sauce. Meals begin with gratis plantain chips and sauce, but indulge accordingly as you’ll want an appetizer of angel wings: Frenched chicken wings with brown butter, habanero papaya sauce and blue cheese dressing for dipping. You can make a lunch out of these or opt for a reasonably priced three-course meal that allows for sampling. Dinner items, besides the churrasco steak, include South American chicken dishes and grilled lobster with garlic, tomato, basil and lemon butter ajillo sauce with jasmine rice. For dessert, the tres leches cake is one of the best in town.
