Picanha churrascaria uses a rich blend of traditions from European immigrants and Brazilian natives. An important element of this culture is churrasco, the Brazilian word for barbecue, that describes a 500 year old culinary tradition that originated in the pampas, or prairie ranchlands of Brazil, in the churrasco tradition, gauchos, Brazilian cowboys, barbecued marinated beef, pork, and poultry on long skewers over an open-fire pit. The gaucho way of roasting meat over an open fire for delicious barbecues, always present at every festive occasion, especially family gatherings. The young boys would learn how to grill the meats the gaucho way from their fathers, becoming the caretakers of a culinary tradition passed down from generation to generation for over three centuries. Picanha embraces these traditions and passes them on to you with great care and a dedication to quality and service.
