#1879 #S1054 - Fumaca Brazilian Steakhouse, Seattle - 9/2/2011

Update: Fumaca closed in June 2014. The building is slated for demolition.

Meat Heaven.

Fuma├ža (Portuguese for "smoke") was created by some of the crew that worked at the Ipanema Brazilian Grill at the top of the Harbor Steps, and the Amazon Grill in Bellevue.  They even offered to recognize gift certificates issued by the ownership of those restaurants in their own place, built in basically the same model. The owners are Columbian and Puerto Rican, and feature Brazilian "rodizio", Puerto Rican "sazon", and Peruvian ceviche.

Of course you must have the rodizio here.  It is not super cheap ($24 for lunch and $40 for dinner), but it is well worth it if you are hungry.  The salad bar sorts of offerings, from artisan cheeses, to various fruits and vegetables, beans, etc. are probably worth the price alone, but the stars are the charcoal grilled meats, continuously brought to your table on stakes by "gauchos."

The bar is not particularly special, but you can have a nice caipirinha as you recover from your food coma.
