Since we have lived in Brazil for 5 years the whole family cant resist a visit to a Churascaria anywhere we can find one. So walking back from the Staples Center to our hotel we bumped into this restaurant. We booked for the next day and visited at 8 pm. we were a party of 6.
We did know the ritual so we went straight to business...Caipiroska, just a few greens from the buffet and we let the meat come! By the way the buffet was very good , with all items one can find in the same type restaurant in Brazil.
Tried all kind of meats - missed the chicken hearts that are illegal to serve in the US- and with the exception of the picanha that is the flagship of meats all tasted excellent. The picanha was not what 'we' in the south of Brazil are used to.
Minor issue but would make the experience excellent!
The friendly waiters -most coming from the south of Brazil- were a pleasure to talk to and to being served in Portuguese made the experience even better.
5 caipiras, full churasco for 6, and a few desserts -including tip-were around 580 Usd...not cheap but at least in the case of churasco its up to you to make use of every cent you pay since its all you can eat concept.
Very nice experience...will be back and recommend this chain.

When the bacon can be served as an appetizer or dessert, you know it's gotta be good. Service was wonderful. Food was outstanding. I recommend trying SMALL amounts of everything, otherwise you'll end up with a plate a food that you can't finish.

The service and food was good. The atmosphere was upscale and the restrooms were immaculate. We were there for our anniversary. This strawberry cheesecake was a nice surprise on the house. Thank you!
