Getting Meaty at Texas de Brazil

For its “Taste of Brazil” event on Friday, January 23, guests of Texas de Brazil, the all-you-can-eat Brazilian Steakhouse next to Dylan’s Candy Bar and not far from the Lexington Avenue-59th Street station, were treated to an open bar and appetizers. Coinciding with the New York Times Travel Show, it was a chance for visiting and local writers and media professionals to enjoy Brazilian pub food in an evening styled after a “Comida de Boteco.” Curated by the restaurant’s culinary director, Evandro Caregnato,  food items included tasty, meaty morsels like chicken wrapped in double-smoked bacon, pork belly with yucca flour, and tender pieces of expertly cooked steak. Busy bartenders were serving Brazilian beers, wine, and, of course, Caipirinhas (Brazil’s national cocktail made with cachaça, sugar and, traditionally, muddled lime, though other flavors were available at the event). On regular nights, the restaurant offers 16 cuts of beef, lamb, pork, chicken and sausage, and if the food normally tastes as good it as did on Friday, it wouldn’t be a bad spot to bring a date or an out-of-town family member—as long as they’re not a vegetarian, of course.
