Bem Brasil - Deansgate
When the philosophy of your chosen restaurant is the confident assertion 'we don't believe in limits', you know you're in for something quite spectacular. Bem Brasil brings a very traditional Brazilian format to Manchester's restaurant scene; these churrascarias and their rodizio-style of service are guaranteed to keep diners happy all evening long. Let us explain - a churrascaria is a type of Brazilian steakhouse with its origins in the fireside cooking of Brazilian cowboys. Nowadays at churrascarias several types of meat are expertly barbecued by specialist chefs then bought straight to your table by waiters (or passadors) as soon as they are cooked and seasoned to perfection. Service 'rodizio style' means, for a set price, the waiters will continue to carve you sizzling cuts of succulent meat until you indicate, with the aid of a handy dual-sided red and green disc, that you are finally full. Spying beef, lamb, chicken and pork marinated and fire-roasted in the traditional Brazilian way, you might find your eyes becoming bigger than your stomach, and your table soon covered with plates of delicious food. Help yourself to appetising accompaniments from a vast selection of Brazilian hot dishes, salads and breads; all freshly made in-house to traditional recipes. Head to the stylish bar for one of Bem Brasil's famous Caipirinha cocktails - the national cocktail of Brazil made with cachaça, sugar and lime is a tangy, refreshing complement to the deep flavours of the barbecue. Plenty of other cocktails are available, alongside fine wines and lashings of great atmosphere. The style of food at Bem Brasil is perfect for big groups, and the large private dining rooms make for a fantastic party or event. Whether you're looking for a romantic hideaway or a carnival atmosphere, Bem Brasil is certainly the equal of any of Manchester's renowned steakhouses, while the uniqueness afforded by its easy Latin charm and lively informality elevates it above many restaurant experiences. Bem Brasil has caused such a sensation in Manchester that a new restaurant is opening in Liverpool this November.
