#2008 #S1104 - The Grill from Ipanema, Seattle - 1/15/2013

Marco Cazas Breaux has established some of the more provocative Latin nightclubs in the city (Madrid 522, Club Sur), owned the Buenos Aires Grill in Belltown, and started the palace of Brazilian churrascaria Ipanema at the top of the Harbor Steps. The Grill from Ipanema revives the latter, in another romantic location, which has recently housed Fandango, Twist, and the shortlived Mestizo. Marco is an old school restauranteur, roaming the premises and making sure everything is just right for the regulars. The salad bar alone is a treat, but the star of the show is the rodizio, where gauchos bring skewers of various tasty meats from the fire pit. Marco employs chef Jared Velasquez (Il Bistro, Avenue One, Volterra, Ipanema) and bartender Alberto Meza. Dinner is a well worth the relatively high price, but you can also get essentially the same great rodizio choices for considerably less at lunch time. As for the bar, you are pretty much obligated to have a caipirinha, the national cocktail of Brazil.
