Braseiro da Gávea

Brazilian in Gávea, Jardim Botânico & Lagoa

This family-style place serves large portions of its popular linguiça (garlicky pork sausage) appetizers, picanha (rump steak) and galetos (grilled chicken). On weekends the open-air spot fills with the din of conversation and the aroma of freshly poured chope (draft beer). As the evening wanes, a younger crowd takes over, drinking late into the night.
