Miami >Maino Churrascaria
Maino--how long will this joint last???. My husband and I went here. We live in the area, and wanted to try it out. We should have run the other way when the host eyeballed us and said, "This is a Brazilian steakhouse. Churrascaria." Umm...get tourists much? The place was also dead empty except for a group of German tourists at one end. What then proceeded was a mediocre-food fest topped with an outrageous bill that should not really be seen this side of the Intracoastal and this north of Ocean Dr. The salad bar selection was puny, and the meats were too fatty and/or seemed old. One cut smelled bad and I'm glad I didn't get sick from it. None of this would really be something to gripe about if the bill was reasonable, but it came to almost $190 for two people. The Caipirihnas are tasty, but at $15 a pop, overpriced for a restaurarnt located in an area with neighborhood ho*kers. Basically, at a non-negotiable, fixed $44 for 1 person's meal (not including drinks, tax and the automatic 15% tip they add), I would never go there again. Please, folks: if you want decent quantity for the buck, go to a Brazilian buffet, and if you want something high end for your money, go to Porcao at the Four Seasons or that Biltmore Sunday Champagne Brunch (which is not not Brazilian, but you get the point).
Best rodizio in Miami.
Simply the most tasteful and beautifully decorated restaurant in the Performing Arts District and possibly, the nicest Brazilian steak house I've been in the entire country.... You are greeted by the owners and it is a personal, well attended "carnivorous adventure" from start to finish. The meat is done to perfection and the flank steak is the best I've ever tasted even for Brazilian standards........By the way , do order the passion fruit lime drinks.......These dudes have a gorgeous FULL BAR !
Everything done to perfection from the decor, service and food. I strongly rec this restaurant to everyone looking for a Brazilian steak house experience. . They are pet friendly!
If you want the "meat-and-greet" Brazilian rodizio experience in a boutique dining setting, this inconspicuous churrascaria is for you..
In a town where churrascarias are everywhere, Maino stands out by doing the exact opposite. You won't find Porcao's views of Brickell Bay or Texas de Brazil's mammoth salad bar in-the-round here. Instead, the décor is elegantly understated, in the style of a hip European bistro complete with a backlit onyx countertop wine bar and intimate dining room seating. The gig is up, however, once the skewer-wielding gauchos make their first meat-laden pass. Carnivores know the drill, turning over their table cards to request more succulent cuts like flank steak, bacon-wrapped chicken, and Brazilian sausage. Plentiful side dishes include rice, beans, and "farofa", enhanced by the subtle yet well-stocked salad bar offering 20 gourmet salads coupled with international warm dishes. In your gut, it's a churrascaria. In your eyes, it's something more.
