If that sounds like something you’ve muttered in the past two months or so, chances are you’re going to want to keep reading. (Hint: There may be giveaway at the end of this post, and it may involve steak! Wink, wink.)
One of the best names in steak and grilled meats around these parts in none other than Chama Gaúcha Brazilian Steakhouse. This place is absolutely elegant and makes sure you don’t leave hungry!
I recently attended a private menu tasting at Chama Gaúcha here in Atlanta (thank you for the invite, Atlanta Food Blogger’s Society!), and this place definitely did not disappoint. I mean, with an all-you-can-eat menu, it’s kind of impossible to disappoint, right?!
Meet the Meats
The authentic “churrascaria” offers 12 flavorful cuts of meat including lamb, pork, chicken, and beef on skewers carved tableside by gauchos. It’s such a fun experience! Even though I’ve been to a Brazilian steakhouse before, but it’s been a while, so I was super excited for this awesome service and attention to detail. It really is a one-of-a-kind dining experience and I highly recommend it if you’ve never been!
In addition to all these yummy meats, I also got a trip to the AMAZING salad bar (it has more than 30 add-ons like exotic charcuterie and cheeses and homemade dressings… yum). There’s also a basket of traditional cheese bread called pao de queijo, as well as fried bananas, buttery garlic mashed potatoes, and fried polenta. Are you drooling yet? I told you you don’t leave this place hungry!
Something for Everyone
I sampled everything on the menu, but I have to say, I really loved the impressive cocktails (I slurped down the Peach Passion Martini with no remorse), salad bar, and desserts (of course). They had a seriously sinful Key Lime Pie that challenged me to show restraint when I really wanted more… Especially when the food is unlimited! I loved that they had something for everyone even though the menu is focused on meats.
The food is on another level at Chama Gaúcha, and the atmosphere is truly the cherry on top. I loved the upscale feel of the dining area—it wasn’t too stuffy and was different than your average steakhouse. Plus, there are lovely fire pits on the patio and multiple seating levels, making the place buzz with activity and warmth. It really did round out the experience!
If you’re ever in Atlanta’s Buckhead district be sure to stop by Chama Gaúcha located at 3365 Piedmont Rd NE, Suite 1350 in Atlanta, GA. Cheers!
