O Paraíba: Tapioca for all tastes!
This restaurant is great. First, the ambience is perfect: there are hammocks outside, vime chairs, and the decor is all based on Northeatsern elements. Even the lamps on the main counter are made of nordestino leather hats.
Then the food, for those who like tapioca, is great: they present a variety of almost 100 fillings for the tapioca (cassava flour "tortilla"), both salt and sweet. Coffee here is very good, too.
Favorite Dish: My favourite (because very traditional) is Mandacaru, that comes filled with cassava purée and jerked meat. Best eaten with manteiga de garrafa (sticky liquid bottled butter, to be used like olive oil).

Cafe Martinica: roof top dining in style
high up in the enening and out of the traffic fumes this was an elegant restaurant with an international tropical taste .Although i preferred the vegetarian one on the same level this did not detract from the very high standards and decor which showed a lot of effort and thought had gone into this place.
Furthermore the service was onobtrusive and faultless.
Welldone the think tank behind here.

real international vegetarian cuisine
This in a country that vies with Argentina and texan u.s.a. for its steaks ;was a delightful oasis although not exclusively veggie was predominantly so with certain fish dishes.It was very busy and the portions were really magnificent but what i really enjoyed was the selection of vinaigrettes .A bigger selection i have only seen matched in Scotland at the Findhorn Foundations theatre restaurant .Here in Brasilia Lanches served food till midnight ,music was eclectic samba and really made the restaurant rock.There are very few places without some form of live music but the crowd here were regulars and were worked if you know what i mean.Fab food ,fab atmosphere a place which was much more than a restaurant. Being on the top floor also was a bonus due to the view and evening coolness.
Favorite Dish: both visits i had the same veg hotpot but the choice of vinaigrettes on a tomato enhanced mixed salad certainly did this for me. I wish i had found this place earlier.

Porcao is a chain of restaurants mainly in Brazil but as far as I read in their site there is a subsidiary in Miami too.
I had been to the one in Brasilia and I would warmly recommand it to you. The interior is really nice and the service is excellent.
Porcao is a churrascaria operating on the rodízio system which means that you pay a fixed price for all the meals and you can eat as much as you want.
Once you sit down, an onslaught of waiters comes bearing variety of meat (steak cuts, roast cuts, filet mignon, chicken breast, chicken hearts, sausage of diverse kinds, and much more) which they slice to perfection on your plate.
When you sit on your table you will get a round card with stop sign one one side and green on the other. Remember, the waiters will keep coming to you with all that meat untill you turn the card on the stop side :))
You can always put aside what you don't like on your plate, then ask for a clean one and start fresh.
There is a buffet with impressive variety of salads and sushi.
What can bring the price up are the dessert and drinks that you order - they are extra and . They are not included in the price and are rather expensive for Brazilian standards.
11:30 h to 00:00 h
The picture is not mine, I borrowed it from their site. I was too busy with eating, so there was no time left for taking pictures :)
Favorite Dish: That is deffinitly a hevaon for meat fans, so try the meat and especially the beef :)

Patu Anu: Great romantic restaurant
A beautiful location, quiet, romantic atmosphere and great food. They had a nice basso novo band playing the night I was there. It's on the lake and not easy to find, but well worth the trip. MAKE SURE TO HAVE A RESERVATION!
