Meat! Meat! And more meat!
Espetus is a Brazilian steak house that will leave any meat lover in a post food-gasum comma, after many delightful hours of meat! My good friend (an avid carnivore) took 6 of us to dinner here for her 30th birthday. It was amazing, and this is coming from the vegetarian of the group.
So there is who it works...You walk in to a beautifully decorated place on Market and Gough, the walls are wood and brick and stacked high with wine bottles. Sit down, order wine and help yourself to the salad bar at the back of the restaurant and come quickly back to the table. This is where the fun begins. On the table is a metal wheel that can be turned to green indicating "Bring on the meat" or to red saying "please let me eat my meat for a while." This wheel can be turned as many times as it takes for you to be done!
When on green, a endless stream of men will come from the kitchen with meat on swards, and offer it to you. If you want some of that kind of meat, they use another sward to cut a portion, then you pick it up with your tongs, put it on your plate and continue eating.
Meat comes in every flavor and style at this restaurant, beef, pork, lamb, chicken and shrimp, in many different forms.There is even chicken hearts for those bravely of heart... no pun intended. But for those less fond of meat the salad bar is equally amazing. A fabulous selection of salads, coozcooz, and fruit. Cheese bread and fried plantains also come to the table.This restaurant is great fun but you pay for. Each person is charged no matter how much or little meat they eat, nearly $40 per person. When I went it was around $400 for a group of 6 plus wine and dessert. Just a warning.BRING ON THE MEAT!
