The restaurant is directly located across a funeral home which is a bit disappointing and sad to see. If you're not uncomfortable with a funeral home across the street, the restaurant can be quite cozy and comfortable. It's quite spacious and definitely a good spot to come for food and drinks with family or friends.
I like that Raizes Churrascaria has an extensive menu of wine and beverages. I ordered this:
There was about 10-18 of us so it was a little difficult to share appetizers, but here's what we tried:
|Grilled NY Strip Steak|
|Broiled Seafood Combo|
Overall, I thought the food was alright, but I feel there wasn't enough flavor. It was nice to eat in a different setting and part of Brooklyn compared to where we usually eat. The space, decor, and ambiance was definitely nice and big. Will Will and I be back? The chances are 50/50 because when we saw there was a funeral home across the street, we were shaking our heads and the food was so so.
Just a note:
The restaurant opens their windows during warmer weather and it's a lot of traffic crossing by the restaurant, so there's a lot of outside noise.
As I've mentioned, it's also across from a funeral home so if your superstitious or don't feel comfortable eating across a funeral home - I would suggest going to another restaurant.
