Brazilian Eatery Struggles To Turn Up the Heat

3/5 stars $$ The Grill from Ipanema (a clever play on the Grammy-winning classic of 1965) is touted by its owners and by many local foodies as the only authentic Brazilian restaurant in town.

It Doesn’t Get Butter Than This

3/5 stars $$$$ Blame it on Paula Deen.

Don’t Be Ashamed To Pig Out

4/5 stars $$$$ The Pig is an enigma. A pleasant one, but an enigma nonetheless. Any restaurant that takes its name from a notoriously gluttonous animal should offer a meal with a calorie count that will keep me on the StairMaster for two and a half weeks. After perusing the menu at[Read More…]
