Sneak Review: Botequim Carioca Brazilian Bar & Grill
A teeny sneak preview of the New Times restaurant review for next week.
Prices are as inviting as a Brazilian bikini. A bowl of black bean stew is $3; soup du jour, onion rings and croquettes are $5 to $6; and the rest of the appetizers mostly range from $8 to $14. The grilled meat starters, for two, run $13 to $25. Main courses are $16 to $28, the high number representing filet mignon and the feijoada for two. Portions are generous, the fare is bulky, the number of plates needed to sate is few. An "executive" menu at lunch brings many of the same steaks, just as large as at dinner and plated with huge starchy sides, for $14 to $16.
Botequim Carioca Brazilian Bar & Grill, 900 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 1-877-902-2224.
