There’s nothing wrong with reaching for the stretchy-waisted pants. That’s because the Brazilian barbecue at Rodrigo Aensa’s Madeira Bistro is so good you’ll be licking your fingers and dancing the samba. The menu includes plenty of à la carte options, but it’s the all-you-can-eat rodízio-style barbecue from chef Misael LeGaria that brings us back time and again. We’re talking about perfectly marinated, mesquite-fire-cooked meats paired with red wine for $29 U.S. The meal includes basil-flavored mashed potatoes, sweet and tasty cabbage coleslaw, two small chicken wings, and three sweet potato slices. The dizzying array of sliced meats, served round after round include arrachera, rib eye, spicy Mexican chorizo hot links, top sirloin, turkey wrapped in bacon, brochette, barbecued ribs, and lamb. Looking for something a little lighter? That à la carte menu we mentioned earlier also features salads, pasta, fish, and shrimp entrées. F.R.
