The Brazilian steakhouse is offering some premier prime cut and wine pairings perfect for a romantic evening. Their Pichana will pair well with a Malbec or a medium bodied Meritage. The ribs in their Costela go perfectly with a full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon or an intense Portuguese red blend. If you’re in the mood for a filet opt for a dry red like a Cabernet Sauvignon or a fruity Pinot Noir.
