Whether you’re experiencing the full Rodizio of slow-roasted meats (with their infamous pineapple) or other popular items, like the Brazilian Coconut Chicken or flatbreads, Carnaval Brazilian Grill makes any visit feel like a getaway. That’s why we were thrilled to get the recipe for their 30 Day Filet, along with a martini that has us ready for spring.
