Location Description:

Blame it on Rio, or São Paulo, or the rain forests, or whatever -- the Brazilians know how to live right. And so much has already been said about this particular North Miami Brazilian eatery and its scrumptious menu of gastronomic delights. The restaurant, which is named for the cut of rump roast called a picanha, has done justice to the former home of Mark's Place, Mark Militello's nationally recognized shrine to New World cuisine. Indeed the eatery has become successful with both Brazilians and the uninitiated alike, in part due to delights such as its meaty linguincinha sausages and rich prawns sautéed in palm oil and coconut milk. And in addition to executive chef Edson Milto's traditional but still exotic feijoada (served weekends), the Picanha menu offers plenty of adventure. The same can be said of the restaurant's festive atmosphere. After dinner you can sip the best caipirinhas in town as you samba into the night accompanied by live bands (call for music details).
